There's a bit of a talent drain occurring at ESPN. The network is either losing or letting go three of its biggest names.

Bill Simmons is leaving for HBO, Colin Cowherd is moving Fox Sports 1 and Keith Olberman, who made his name on ESPN's SportsCenter, is leaving the network for the second time. His current gig at ESPN is ending just two years after he was lured back from MSNBC.

What do the changes say about the way viewers and radio listeners are consuming sports? Here & Now sports analyst Mike Pesca discusses this with host Meghna Chakrabarti.
