ESPN stated in a press release to USA TODAY Sports on Wednesday that Rivera “no longer works here.” The biography of Rivera is no longer listed with various community workers. The neighborhood made no further comments regarding the incident.
According to the New York Post, Rivera and reporter Ivón Gaete both attempted to speak with New York Yankees hitter Aaron Judge before the team’s 5-2 loss to the Los Angeles Angels on April 18 at Yankee Stadium. According to reports, Rivera told Gater that she had already planned an interview with Judge, but Gater allegedly disregarded her.
Gaete Rivera, a “swearer” at the time, was captured on camera. After a game in 2018, ESPN Deportes broadcaster Marly Rivera spoke with Keke Hernandez (on the left).
In a statement to the New York Post, Rivera said, “I take full responsibility for the things I said I shouldn’t have done. Although there are mitigating factors, this in no way justifies my behavior.
For ESPN and ESPN Deportes, Rivera, a multilingual author and reporter, covers the MLB and the New York Yankees. She argues that her termination was the result of more than just insults.
“I’m a professional player with a great reputation in baseball,” Rivera told the Post. “I feel like a group of people with whom I’ve had a long-standing professional disagreement have singled me out,” one person said.
Gaete is the spouse of MLB Vice President of Communications John Blundell and a contract writer.
