Dan Patrick leaving ESPN

 After 18 years with the ESPN, Dan Patrick announced today on his radio show, that he will be leaving the TV.

Dan Patrick leaving ESPN The reason Dan Patrick gave today on his radio-show for leaving ESPN, after 18 years of work, was simply - he started to take his job for granted. Patrick said that his initial plan was to come out with the announcement last week, but ESPN executives asked him to reconsider. Which he did and the decision stays - his final ESPN show will be on August 17th.

 Patrick hopes to continue to work in the radio, but he wasn't sure if television is something he would consider for his future. "If there was animosity, I wouldn't be doing radio shows after this one today," he said, addressing rumors of problems with the network.

 Patrick recently hosted "NBA Countdown" on ABC, and the network's game broadcasts, including the NBA finals. He was also a Sports-Center anchor from 1989-2006. Hosting his own radio-show, "The Dan Patrick Show" on ESPN Radio, since 1999, Dan Patrick was honored as National Sportscaster of the Year by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association in 2000.
