One Of Sky Sports Senior Reporters Has Been Let Go And Fans Are Not Happy

One Of Sky Sports Senior Reporters Has Been Let Go And Fans Are Not Happy
By Mikey Traynor Updated

One of Sky Sports News' most recognisable reporters has been let go, the company announced this week.

According to the Daily Mail, cut-backs due to the increasing cost of broadcasting live Premier League games is the reason that chief football reporter Nick Collins will now no longer be informing us of what FA chairman Greg Dyke has said on the latest scandal in English football through is iconic mustache.

Sky Sports’ brutal cost-cutting following their £11m-a-match spend on Premier League rights has claimed four more casualties, including chief football reporter Nick Collins.

The quartet is made up of Collins and the respected trio of rugby reporter Phil Edwards, Midlands reporter Pete Colley and Tim Abraham, who was recalled from the England cricket tour of India last Friday in the middle of the Test series.

They are all faced with an official Sky redundancy process.

Let us go no further without paying tribute to the highlight of Collin's Sky Sports career, the moment he tripped over a ladder while talking about Michael Carrick being pushed out of the England lineup by Steven Gerrard and Jack Wilshere.

Unforgettable.

Nick Collins was a good reporter. For a TV station that uses some of the most irritating and grating people imaginable to relay information on sporting legal issues or transfer news, Collins was inoffensive and didn't try to force comedy into every situation. People liked him for that.

People really liked him for that, as there are many upset people on social media who have criticised the decision to let him go.

He was well liked, so we'd have to imagine another network will be looking to snap him up soon. At least we hope so, only time will tell if we see him pop up on a different channel.
