ESPN Book Policy
Today ESPN is issuing an expanded book policy for our hundreds of commentators and reporters. You can read (PDF FILE) the rules they will now follow if they are considering a book project. Of note is that ESPN, as a matter of policy, will no longer grant permission to write as-told-to books with sports personalities.
Laurie Orlando, Senior Vice President of Talent Planning and Development explains: “This latest policy provides guidance in an increasingly complicated environment and will further protect the credibility of both ESPN and our people.”
