Wednesday was a difficult day at ESPN. The company announced at the start of the day the elimination of 150 jobs across a variety of departments.

The layoffs affected mostly those behind the camera’s gaze, but were no less important to the general operation — so much so that Around The Horn host Tony Reali paid a heartfelt tribute to his colleagues hit by the cuts, with a special mention to beloved producer David Brofsky at the end of Wednesday’s show.
