ESPN has fired one of its best and most-popular announcers, Ron Franklin after he reportedly berated a female colleague, Jeannine Edwards.

The network pulled him from its radio coverage of Saturday’s Fiesta Bowl.

Franklin issued a public apology on Monday.

Franklin had been working for ESPN since 1987, providing play-by-play for college football and basketball.

Edwards responded to Internet reports on Monday that Franklin down-talked to her by saying “sweet baby” on Friday. When she objected, he started using a derogatory term. Edwards said a colleague reported the incident to ESPN officials.

Mike Soltys, and ESPN spokesman said that the network had ended their relationship with Franklin based on what happened last Friday.
