Neil Best leaves no stone unturned in the world of sports media.

Stephen A. Smith will be leaving ESPN in two weeks

Stephen A. Smith's last day at ESPN is May 1.

He confirmed here that he is leaving, a day after a story to that effect in The Big Lead here.

When I started on the sports media beat in the fall of 2005, Stephen A. was a rising superstar at the network. Now, not.

ESPN: “We thank Stephen A. for his many contributions to ESPN and wish him well. We decided to move in different directions.”
