Neil Goldberg No Longer Employed By ESPN
Here is an updated story on former NASCAR on ESPN Sr. Producer Neil Goldberg, arrested last week in Connecticut on a number of criminal charges stemming from a Peeping Tom incident.
By John Ourand, Staff Writer for Sports Business Daily:
ESPN has let go Neil Goldberg, the Senior Producer for NASCAR who was arrested last week in Connecticut on public indecency charges, sources say. Goldberg's boss, Sr. Coordinating Producer Jill Frederickson, handled production for ESPN's NASCAR races over the weekend and plans to work this weekend's races, as well.
Goldberg has not worked at ESPN since his arrest last week, which also included charges of simple trespass, disorderly conduct and breach of peace. ESPN VP/Communications Mike Soltys would only confirm that Goldberg no longer works for ESPN.
This should close a very difficult time for the NASCAR TV team. This group travels together from February through November producing all the Nationwide Series races and the final seventeen Sprint Cup Series events.
