ESPN analyst Schilling takes leave

Mon., June 18, 2012

Curt Schilling is taking a leave of absence from his job as an analyst for ESPN after his video gaming company filed for bankruptcy. ESPN spokesman Mike Soltys said on Twitter that the network and retired pitcher “mutually agreed” to the leave as he works through “his business issues.” He said Schilling is expected to return to the air later this season. Schilling’s 38 Studios filed for bankruptcy June 7. Federal and state authorities launched probes into the studios, which received a $75 million loan guarantee deal from Rhode Island. The three-time World Series champion with the Diamondbacks and Red Sox was hired by ESPN two years ago. – AP
