ESPN has fired Jalen Rose from the NBA Countdown, The Post has learned.
Rose, 50, has been on ABC/ESPN’s premier NBA show for a decade, which was particularly impressive given the number of changes the network has undergone in that time.
The Post first reported Friday morning that ESPN was firing about 20 on-air personalities.
Top NBA analyst Jeff Van Gundy was also fired from the network.
ESPN had scaled back Rose’s role at the network after his daily show with David Jacoby was canceled in late 2022.
Rose survived with his pregame show but since he was making millions he had become a target as ESPN likes some of his up and coming analysts like Kendrick Perkins, JJ Redick and Richard Jefferson.
When ESPN launched “Get Up” in 2018, Rose was one of the original hosts and reportedly made $3 million a year.
He left the show after ESPN decided to make Mike Greenberg the show’s solo pilot.
Rose will continue his column and podcast for The Post entitled “Renaissance Man”.
