Steve Phillips Leaves ESPN After Staff Affair Scandal

October 26, 2009

U.S. (ChattahBox) – Just days after his affair with a 22-year-old production assistant made headlines, Steve Phillips has been fired by ESPN, after the network released a statemeing saying that his integrity had been compromised.

The 46-year-old had a fairly short sexual relationship with Brooke Hundley. It was one of many that he admitted too, but probably one of the more rocky.

He and his wife have filed several police reports over the summer, stating that Hundley had shown up at their home, made harasssing phone calls, and wouldn’t leave the couple alone after the affair ended.

It was the contentious nature of the extramarital relationship that brought it to the attention of ESPN.

The announcement was made during Game 6 of the ALCS.

“Steve Phillips is no longer working for ESPN. His ability to be an effective representative for ESPN has been significantly and irreparably damaged, and it became evident it was time to part ways,” they said.

Phillips has since checked himself into a rehab center for ‘personal issues’, though those issues have not been released.  His wife Marni Phillips filed for divorce Sept. 14, according to court records.
