Statement from ESPN President John Skipper:

We have been leaders in reporting on the concussion issue, dating back to the mid-1990s.  Most recently, we aired a lengthy, thorough, well-reported segment on Outside the Lines on Sunday, and re-aired it Tuesday.

I want to be clear about ESPN’s commitment to journalism and the work of our award-winning enterprise team.  We will continue to report this story and will continue to support the work of Mark Fainaru-Wada and Steve Fainaru.

We have respect as well for the efforts of the people at Frontline.
