Walsh recently gave birth to twins. She tweeted that she won’t return to the network as she completes maternity leave.
“I was truly excited to return to work today from maternity leave with the twins,” she wrote on Twitter. “Unfortunately, I will not be coming back as I was included in the recent layoffs.”
Walsh joined ESPN in 2010.
ESPN’s latest round of layoffs began last Wednesday, when a number of high-profile employees ― including NFL reporter Ed Werder, MLB writer Jayson Stark, and many of its college basketball and NBA reporters ― announced their departures from the company.
It’s unclear whether Walsh learned of the layoff last week or upon her scheduled return from maternity leave ― the Washington Post cited a source saying that all employees who lost jobs were told Wednesday. News of specific layoffs, however, has continued to trickle out this week.
