Howie Schwab Says ESPN Fired Him Over His Salary
I loved “Stump The Schwab” and I liked Howie Schwab personally. He was just a nice guy who loved sports. Didn’t scream, didn’t skiptize everything, didn’t want to be a celebrity. He was just an old school media guy and sports historian.
When I spoke to The Schwab at the NFL Draft he made a point of saying guys like him may become obsolete in the world of new age media. Unfortunately, he might be right.
After 26 years at ESPN, I am extremely disappointed to say farewell. I have been proud of my association and my work during my tenure. I was a loyal employee, displayed respect for others, worked with numerous charities, represented the company well. I always did everything asked of me and more. What did I get in return today … word that I should get lost. The only thing that mattered was my salary, which in my view was the lone reason I lost my job.
