The sports website that brought you “SportsCenter” and “The Undefeated” is shutting down.
SportsCenter is shuttingtered as it struggles to survive on its own, according to a person familiar with the situation.
The company has been struggling to survive in the digital age, which is causing it to rely more on traditional news sources, according the person, who asked not to be named because the discussions are private.
It is unclear what kind of content will replace it.
The announcement was made late Friday afternoon, hours after the company’s board of directors met to discuss the future of its sports operations.
ESPN was a major player in the sports TV business during the 1990s, when the network was one of the largest in the world.
It lost billions in the process.
SportsCenter is now known as ESPN Digital and SportsCenter Live.
It airs on ESPN, ESPN Deportes and on mobile devices.
ESPN has said it plans to merge its news, entertainment and sports websites into one entity, but that it won’t announce any details about the plan until the company completes the transaction.
