Sexual harassment scandal while working at ESPN
Though Mike is sharing healthy married life with his wife, he doesn’t have a squeaky-clean past. His sexual harassment scandal is not a new story.
While he was working at ESPN, he was accused of harassing a female employee. Two books, ESPN: The Uncensored History (2000) and These Guys Have All The Fun (2011) which is about the ESPN network recounts sexual harassment allegations.
After that, he was suspended for three months by the network in 1992 by the network. However, addressing all the accusation, Tirico mentioned that he was misunderstood.
