‘SportsCenter’ Anchor Neil Everett Leaving ESPN After 23 Years

Jun 9, 2023

Anchor Neil Everett is leaving ESPN, Front Office Sports has confirmed.

The famous “SportsCenter” anchor confirmed he’s the latest on-air talent to leave during the Walt Disney Co.-mandated downsizing of ESPN’s on-air TV/radio talent.

The 61-year-old Everett has been one of ESPN’s most popular anchors for 23 years.

The Portland native will seek to increase his role with the NBA’s Portland Trail Blazers. He also has several side projects in the works.

“Bartender…last call,” Everett said in a statement to Front Office Sports.

He added: “ESPN changed my life, but now it’s time for me to change my life. Time to write a new chapter.”
