Is Highly Questionable cancelled?
No, Highly Questionable is not cancelled. The show is all set to go on without Batard. Meanwhile, his radio show, ‘The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz,’ will be replaced with “Greeny” with Mike Greenberg.
“It was mutually agreed that it was best for both sides to move on to new opportunities and we worked together closely to make that possible,” said Norby Williamson, ESPN executive vice president and executive editor said in relation to Batard’s exit. “We thank Dan for his many years and contributions to ESPN and wish him all the best going forward.”
“Gracias to ESPN for unleashing Papi and Stugotz upon an unsuspecting America, and for lending its substantive credibility to our careening clown car,” Batard said in a statement. “Can’t believe Stugotz finally achieved his dream of becoming a high-priced free agent.”
Dan Le Batard issues a goodbye message
Batard took to Twitter to bid his goodbye to the show. “Dear @lebatardshow and Papi, thank you for 10 amazing years,” he captioned the video. “If you have been with us since the beginning, you have seen some things grow in this garden that we have tended to so lovingly and so very amateurly. The size of my jackets and my face, the size of Papi’s national and international fame, and the size of my family, this has always been a father-son show, but look at all the love and support surrounding me,” he said.
