Lib Crank was let go by ESPN this week.
Via The Hollywood Reporter:

The television personality, who rejoined the sports network in August 2013, won’t be renewing his deal to anchor his ESPN2 program, a source confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter. His deal is complete at the end of July and he is expected to appear on the network until the conclusion of that deal.

Sources say that ESPN management made Olbermann an offer to take his show to the network’s headquarters in Bristol or at the Los Angeles facility but was rebuffed.

Olbermann’s impending departure follows a THR report on July 1 detailing the anchor’s “commentary” in his segments as a point of contention in his contract negotiation with the network.
