ESPN Reporter Quits Over Disney’s Vaccine Mandate

ESPN college football and basketball reporter Allison Williams is leaving the network over parent company Disney’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate, she announced Saturday. Williams, who joined ESPN in 2011, has been vocal about her decision not to get the vaccine. She announced via Twitter on Sept. 9 that she would not be on college football sidelines in 2021 considering ESPN mandated that live-event staffers must get the vaccine.

That said, she also claimed not to support Disney’s mandate. “Belief is a word I’ve been thinking about a lot lately, because in addition to the medical apprehensions regarding my desire to have another child in regards to receiving this injection, I am also so morally and ethically not aligned with this,” Williams said in her post.
