Adnan Virk joining DAZN as host of new baseball highlights show, per reports

Former ESPN anchor Adnan Virk has apparently resolved his abrupt departure from the network and found the next stop in his broadcasting career.

Shortly after signing a multiyear contract extension, Virk was fired in January for allegedly leaking company information about ESPN’s negotiations with Major League Baseball.

Although Virk continues to maintain he did nothing wrong, he and the network have agreed not to litigate their differences, according to Andrew Marchand of the New York Post.

As a side note, another streaming service to add to the list- I wonder how long before consolidation happens….
