The calculus behind the decision to let go of Jackson is not known, as news of his exit was not divulged when ESPN talent were laid...
“Rivers and Burke will take over Van Gundy and Jackson’s roles alongside Mike Breen.”
"Will ESPN/ABC even decide to bring in someone else? It’s one option for the network, but maybe not the best choice."
“I love that perspective, so what you do is unique and it’s special.”
“He kept hitting it throughout the course of the broadcast.”
“Until we sign that contract, I take nothing for granted. Absolutely nothing."
"The year I left coaching at Providence, they decided to put Providence women’s college basketball on radio. That was literally my first foray into this business."
"Women will dominate studio coverage that night as well."
"Doris Burke has an ease about her. A quiet confidence if you will."
"Her passion for the craft combined with her ability to connect and build trust with the audience is as good as anyone in the business."
