Ryen Russillo Exit from ESPN
In December 2017 ESPN announced that Ryen was leaving his show, ‘The Ryen Russillo Show’.
“Here’s the deal: I have been here like I said 12 (years) — 8.5 in this slot — I wasn’t sure I wanted to move slots. Personally, I felt like I wasn’t growing the way I wanted to grow. And that’s OK. I can be wrong there … But the way my contract works is if I was going to move a slot then I could talk to them about like, ‘OK, well, if I’m gonna move again with Will — we’re gonna do 3 to 6.’ Especially with everything that a lot of people at the company had to go through earlier this year, I just said, ‘Is there any way we can talk about an extension?’ ESPN said, ‘Absolutely. We’ll do this.’ And I was offered an extension, and it was the same money that I made now. And in the grand scheme in the way the world works, it’s a lot of money, and I get that. But my days were gonna be different. I was gonna be here on NBA hits for SportsCenter. I was gonna be here like 10 hours a day.
I don’t have a lot of a life now. I don’t really have any balance. I’d be lying if I told you I was super happy lately. I know people who know me really well here, I don’t think they’re entirely surprised by this. So it would have to be something where I also felt like I was growing creatively outside of ESPN Radio — some other entities … I don’t know if that was going to happen.”

I always like to post pics of my closest friends that are considered more handsome than the rest of us. When not on the "big screen" it's obvious that these people aren't that different than you or me. Now you and me are probably different because I'm on TV and have a fancy watch…so maybe I'm closer to Josh than you are to me but whatevs, looks based I'm really close to Josh and so are you. (Maybe) #faceshaming #transformers
