Around the Horn

A Special Send Off for ESPN’s Jackie MacMullan

Jackie MacMullan announced her ESPN retirement two weeks ago, and today, August 31, she will make her final on-air appearance. Fittingly, she’ll finish her ESPN tenure on Around The Horn (ESPN2, 5 p.m. ET with re-airs on ESPNEWS at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m.)

Not only has MacMullan been a leading NBA coverage voice for forty years, she has also been a staple of Around The Horn since joining ESPN in 2010.

MacMullan’s impact and influence has been on full display through the outpouring of respect and praise she has received since the announcement.

ESPN colleagues, current and former NBA players and media members have expressed what the Curt Gowdy Media Award-winner has meant to our industry.

As none other than Larry Bird wrote in a letter to Jackie dated August 27, 2021: “You are one of the best, you always have been and you always will be and that’s the way it is.”
