Daily Wire Editor Emeritus Ben Shapiro announced on his show Friday that the company has signed former ESPN sports reporter Allison Williams to lead a special sports series that will be available exclusively for Daily Wire members.
As The Daily Wire previously reported, Williams left her post as a college basketball and football reporter for ESPN last Friday after being sidelined in September for refusing to abide by the network’s COVID-19 vaccination mandate.
“The Daily Wire is one of America’s fastest-growing media companies and I am thrilled and honored to join them. I am proud to be a part of a company that fights for our rights and I cannot wait to bring agenda-free sports reporting to the Daily Wire’s members and millions of followers,” Williams said in a statement. “Leaving ESPN was one of the most difficult decisions of my career, but it was the right thing to do. I respect people who choose to get the COVID-19 vaccine, but it was not the appropriate medical decision for me at this time. No one should be forced to choose between their livelihood and the freedom to make their own health care choices—it is simply un-American.”
“Throughout our family planning with our doctor, as well as a fertility specialist, I have decided not to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at this time while my husband and I try for our second child,” Williams said. “This was a deeply difficult decision to make and it’s not something I take lightly. I understand vaccines have been essential in the effort to end this pandemic; however, taking the vaccine at this time is not in my best interest.”
“I have been denied my request for accommodation by ESPN and the Walt Disney Company, and effective next week, I will be separated from the company,” Williams added in a video statement.
“I also want people to know who support these mandates that I fight for you,” she said. “Because if this is the direction we take our country, there will come a time when the government or corporations mandate you to get something that does not align with your values. Power given is seldom returned. And when that day comes, I want you to at least know that we fought, and we tried.”
We need more of this!
ESPN and Disney should be ashamed of themselves.
