ESPN analyst Sage Steele’s invite to the cookout has long be rescinded, and now her job as the host of NBA Countdown on ABC and ESPN has come to an end.
With the playoffs just around the corner, Steele will be replaced by Michelle Beadle the co-host of SportsNation, who is expected to host the pregame and halftime shows NBA shows on ABC, The Washington Post.
Steele hasn’t been one of Black America’s most favorite people after she took African American men to task for protesting the killings of unarmed African American men, women and children. And let’s not forget that the time people protested the muslim ban, Steele was super annoyed, and not because the ban was totally xenophobic and fucked up, she was made because she was going to miss her flight.
Steele won’t be completely without work as she continue to appear on “SportsCenter on the Road,” and ESPN notes that she will have an “expanded on-site presence at events such as the Masters, World Series, Super Bowl, the College Football Playoff, and College Football National Championship.”
