ESPN reporter Allison Williams announced this weekend she is leaving the company over the Covid vaccine mandate.
Last month Williams said she was taking a step back from work because of the vaccine mandate.
Williams said she consulted with her family planning doctor and fertility specialist and decided not to get the experiential Covid jab because she was trying for a second child.
This will be the first fall in the last 15 years I won’t be on the sidelines for College Football.

This weekend Williams disclosed that her request for an exemption from the Covid vaccine was denied so she is leaving the network.
“Whether you agree or disagree with me, thanks for listening. I will not echo or harbor the hostility that some may feel toward my decision. Doing everything I can to move forward and stay positive,” Williams said on Instagram.
“I’m so morally and ethically not aligned with this,” she added.
