ESPN president John Skipper announced in a memo to employees Wednesday that the company is laying off approximately 150 employees.

Skipper wrote in the memo that the majority of the eliminated positions are in studio production, digital content and technology rather than front-facing talent.

“We will continue to invest in ways which will best position us to serve the modern sports fan and support the success of our business,” Skipper wrote.
