ESPN has fired one of its most popular and versatile hosts for allegedly leaking confidential company information to the news media.

The New York Post, citing “sources,” was the first to report that ESPN looked into the allegations and determined that Adnan Virk didn’t fully cooperate with the internal investigation.

The Post reported, “Virk was escorted off the Bristol campus (on Friday). The specific nature of the information Virk chose to share is unknown at this time.” 

ESPN spokesperson Josh Krulewitz confirmed to USA TODAY Sports on Sunday that Virk “no longer works at ESPN.”

Virk, 40, joined ESPN in 2010 after working in various TV jobs in his native Canada.

He had been the lead studio host on ABC’s college football coverage, as well as a regular host on the now-canceled “Baseball Tonight” program and a fill-in host on ESPN radio.

As of Sunday afternoon, Virk’s Twitter handle (@adnanESPN) and bio still included his association with ESPN.
