Anchor Dave Revsine is leaving ESPN after almost 11 years on the job. Where is he going? Well, unlike an undecided Mike Hall Revsine has decided to head to the Big Ten Network....
By the time the Big Ten Network launches in August, Dave Revsine probably will know the name of the backup free safety at Purdue. Maybe he'll even know his own job title by then. He didn't Thursday.I've always enjoyed Revsine. He's a tad too serious at times, but he never made himself more than the News. It seems like this is just the beginning of Hosts leaving for "actual" news and reporting jobs in lieu of "Hollywood" promotions on ESPN.
"Studio host?" Revsine said. "Man about town?"
Revsine, a Northbrook native and Northwestern alum who is leaving ESPN after 10 years, will be the BTN's lead studio host. He is the network's first on-air hire.
