According to a report, some gambling companies are eyeing ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and may attempt to pry him away.
“A possible Woj bomb: Another source said the cash-rich gambling companies could eventually try to pick off ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski as part of their drive to become full-fledged sports media companies,” wrote Michael McCarthy and A.J. Perez of Front Office Sports.
Wojnarowski, whose focus is the NBA, is one of the top insiders in all of sports, and he’s clearly a hot commodity in the media world. He joined ESPN in 2017 after previously working for Yahoo! Sports.
If Wojnarowski were to land with a gambling company, it would certainly be a major development for sports fans.
Gambling is often a controversial topic in the sports world. It would be interesting to see how folks would react if Wojnarowski were to take his talents to the sports betting industry.
Time will tell if he ends up leaving ESPN.
