Per John Ourand of the Sports Business Journal, Rachel Nichols will no longer appear on ESPN and the network is in the process of winding down her daily NBA show, The Jump.

Two weeks ago, ESPN announced that David Roberts would lead all NBA programming going forward, and his first move was certainly a decisive one.

The Jump, which will still be on the air with different hosts over the next few weeks, will reportedly be replaced with a new NBA weekday show in the leadup to the 2021-22 season.

The news comes a little more than a month after Maria Taylor left the company to join NBC, on the heels of The New York Times‘ publication of Rachel Nichols’ 2020 comments about ESPN colleague Maria Taylorthe fallout that’s created within ESPN, the reduced on-air duties for Nichols during the NBA Finals. Some had prognosticated that ESPN could look to part ways with Nichols as  “the anger over this is too raw and too widespread” for ESPN to keep her in such a prominent role in the wake of Taylor’s high profile departure.

Nichols tweeted about the news shortly after it broke.

Many high profile people within sports media also weighed in on the surprising move with the main takeaway being ESPN really screwed up their management of this.

ESPN will now be tasked with rebuilding their NBA coverage with two key pieces from last season gone and a lot of people angry about how this played out.
