ESPN’s Jalen Rose kept quiet about DUI bust for three weeks
ESPN learned about its basketball analyst’s run-in with police just before WDIV in Detroit reported it. ESPN talent development veep Laurie Orlando tells Poynter’s Kelly McBride that at a meeting with ESPN talent last year, “we said to them we need you to disclose your situations. I know Jalen was here in house for those conversations.” McBride notes that there’s a perception that ESPN is willing to report on the failings of athletes but sweeps the failings of its own staff under the rug. || “Please accept my apology.”
