Sports media world pays tribute to Bob Ley following retirement

Longtime ESPN anchor and reporter Bob Ley announced on Wednesday that he has decided to retire, and the sports media world wasted no time letting him know the impact he has made on the industry for the past several decades.

In a statement on Twitter, Ley revealed that he will be leaving ESPN at the end of the month to enjoy retirement. He insisted the decision was strictly his own and thanked the network for a successful relationship that spanned 40 years.

Ley, who has won multiple Emmy Awards, is currently the longest tenured employee at ESPN. His investigative reporting for “Outside the Lines” has made an impact on countless lives, and that was evident with the way some of his colleagues and rivals reacted to the news.

Ley announced last October that he was taking a six-month sabbatical from “Outside the Lines” to re-charge, and he has apparently decided that the retired life suits him.
