Sterger had been adamant that she would not meet with league officials until now. ESPN’s Chris Mortensen said while the league would like to confirm if the photos are form Favre, they are also interested in knowing why Sterger did not report the incident two years ago when it happened.
Sports Business Journal broke the news that Versus will not be renewing its contract with Jenn Sterger and have decided to cancel Sterger’s show “The Daily Line.” Versus execs are worried they will be blamed for wrongful termination adding more fuel to the Brett Favre sexual harassment fire. However, according to The Sports Business Journal, Versus decided months ago not to renew Sterger’s contract, but she only found out recently.
Throughout the Favre scandal, Sterger did not talk about it on “The Daily Line.” The cancellation of the show is due to poor ratings, which begs the question: don’t all shows on Versus get bad ratings?
There are new developments in the Brett Favre sexting saga…. the NY Post is reporting that a friend of Jenn Sterger says the former NY Jets sideline reporter did in fact corresponded with Favre. Deadspin.com released voicemails and sext messages Favre sent to Sterger, but up until this time it was unclear if Sterger ever responded.
The friend, Allison Torres says she was with Sterger when Favre sent the nude photos and that Sterger would often text Favre. Torres does not know if Sterger had a sexual relationship with Favre but did tell the NY Post:
“I just know they kept texting each other back and forth and that he wanted to hook up. I wouldn’t doubt she was enjoying the attention from him.”
Torres also said that Favre would try and get Sterger to come over to his hotel while his family lived in Morristown, NJ. Sterger is currently a sports personality on Versus, and her and Torres have not spoken in a few months.
