Ryen Russillo offered a statement on his future at Bristol.
Ryen Rusillo, a veteran at ESPN and the co-host of Russillo & Kanell, finally spoke out about his future with ESPN. After the company went through more than 100 layoffs on Wednesday, his co-host, Danny Kanell was let go. That left Russillo's future with ESPN in doubt, and reports claimed that he would suffer "a reduced role" with the company.
According to Russillo, however, there was no truth to the rumor that he will suffer a reduced role. In fact, he says the he is staying with ESPN and will be on the radio Monday at 1 p.m. E.T. like always.
It's unclear what the future of his show holds, but he says he's going to address it all at the beginning of Monday's show.
Here's what he had to say on Twitter:
We'll just have to tune into his Monday broadcast to find out where the reports came from and what his future with ESPN will be. Meanwhile, the Russillo and Kanell twitter account has been renamed from @RussilloandKanell to @RussilloShow, which makes it seem like he will host his own radio show until ESPN finds an on-air partner for him to work with.
