Adnan Virk filled several roles for ESPN. More

Adnan Virk from ESPN is on the TV set before the College Football Playoff National Championship Game between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Georgia Bulldogs on January 8, 2018 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, GA.

Virk, who had recently re-upped on a multi-year contract, is accused of leaking confidential company information to the media on multiple occasions, according to multiple reports.

When the outlet reached out to ESPN, they were told by Vice President of Communications Josh Krulewitz simply that "Adnan Virk no longer works at ESPN".

However, the floodgates opened once Burns was sent back by Holder and the 35-run opening stand came to an end. Holder missed the tour due to a shoulder injury, but was kept apprised of things.

Per his ESPN bio, Virk joined ESPN in 2010 and had filled a number of roles for the company. Virk was escorted Friday from ESPN's Bristol campus after the network determined that he passed information about its baseball coverage to the sports blog Awful Announcing.

When the conference call took place, Virk was not on the whole time, and the specific information about the future schedule for baseball was actually not discussed. "Your tweets will not stop us, @LeBatardShow", he retweeted. Virk was a host for Baseball Tonight, a studio host for its college football coverage, a frequent visitor of ESPN Radio and a host of the movie-focused podcast Cinephile. His Twitter profile still includes ESPN in its name.

Representatives for Virk declined to comment, as did Koo. In 2008, he was named Sportscaster of the Year by Anokhi Vibe Magazine, and Favorite Media Personality by the Masala, Mehndi, Masti Organization. He grew up in Canada after he emigrated from Pakistan.
