Rachel Nichols 'secretly recorded' in an attempt to discredit her in Florida room hotel

Recently, An ESPN employee recorded a private conversation between ESPN star Rachel Nichols, the host of "The Jump", and another person and distributed video clips of that recording in an attempt to smear Nichols, Deadspin reported Thursday. ESPN is "extremely disappointed" after a person recorded a video feed of a private conversation involving "The Jump" host Rachel Nichols. An anonymous party sent Deadspin four clips of that conversation hoping to "expose" Nichols as a "back-stabber." Her conversation reportedly lasted 30 minutes, though Deadspin received only four minutes of edited footage. Since Deadspin received only one side of the conversation, the site declined to reveal the specifics of the call, saying only it was about Nichols' career and how ESPN was handling NBA Finals coverage. Deadspin added that nothing Nichols said in the clips cast her in a negative light. ESPN called that act "indefensible and an intrusion on Rachel's privacy," in a statement to Deadspin. Nichols is in the Orlando area covering the NBA's 2019-20 season restart at Disney World and was on Thursday's edition of "The Jump". Nichols, who used to be a print reporter for newspapers in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and Washington, D.C., is one of the prominent media voices on the NBA.
