The Kenny Mayne era has come to an end at ESPN. Mayne will be missed by ESPN viewers. He was there for decades and should be remembered as one of SportsCenter's best anchors. He set the bar high early on with his simple, unsolicited job application.
From there Mayne was everywhere. He was good at what he did and because of that they let him try different things. Most of those things were shots at mixing sports and humor, which is not easy to pull off on television, but again and again he came up with solid bits for things like NFL Countdown's Mayne Event. Like this classic clip which featured Marshawn Lynch.
If The Ringer is considering pivoting to video anytime soon, Mayne would be a good hire.
