ESPN reporter Kimberley A. Martin fired back Wednesday after NPR used her photo on a story about her colleague, reporter Maria Taylor.
The story detailed Taylor’s plan to leave ESPN after contract extension negotiations failed and remarks from ESPN reporter Rachel Nichols went public.
“ESPN host Maria Taylor will leave the sports network after they failed to agree on a contract extension. It comes weeks after remarks by veteran ESPN reporter Rachel Nichols were leaked in which she suggested that Taylor was promoted because she is Black,” NPR’s tweet read.
But NPR’s original tweet included a feature photo of Martin rather than Taylor.
