Since the FED’s shut down the Big Poker Websites last week and froze their bank accounts; ESPN has dropped all poker programming according to Bloomberg.
While Poker remains very popular, ESPN prefers CASH over viewer popularity. With the bank accounts frozen, ESPN won’t be paid and programming such as World Series of Poker is off the air until new sponsors can be found.
WXII-TV still carries Poker After Dark daily at 2:05 AM. No word if they might drop the programming.
