Recently leaked audio of ESPN’s Rachel Nichols that has social media on fire when she forgot to turn off her recording when speaking to LeBron James publicist Adam Mendelsohn about the diversity issues of ESPN and how she was not willing to let them replace her with a rising star Maria Taylor just because of ESPN’s feeling pressure about their crappy longtime record on diversity.  Not only did Nichols forget to turn the recording off but the feed went directly to ESPN and was shared amongst staff there before it was leaked to the New York Times.

According to the audio Rachel Nichols an NBA reporter for ESPN say’s they wanted her to team up with Maria Taylor who’s a host and reporter for college football, NBA and NFL.  Rachel Nichols told Lebron James’ publicist that she told them ,hell to the no, that would set it up for Maria Taylor to take her spot.  The audio goes on with Adam Mendelsohn giving Nichols his thoughts on the BLM and how exhausting it is and how Nichols can frame what ESPN was trying to do to her.
