NEW YORK (AP) - ESPN has banned staffers from the New York Post
from appearing on any of its programming after the newspaper ran photos from the video showing sideline reporter Erin Andrews nude in a hotel room.
The Post published three images from the blurry video.
"While we understand the Post's decision to cover this as a news story, their running photos obtained in such a fashion went well beyond the boundaries of common decency in the interest of sensationalism," ESPN senior vice president of communications Chris LaPlaca said in a statement Wednesday night.
ESPN regularly uses newspaper reporters as guests for analysis and insight on its shows.
Post spokesman Howard Rubenstein did not immediately return a call from The Associated Press.
