RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Bob Costas is calling out ESPN for giving Caitlyn Jenner their Arther Ashe Courage Award. The comments were made on Dan Patrick’s radio show Tuesday.
Costas was careful to try and not diminish Jenner’s transition, instead opting to stomp all over the sports network.
He called the move a “crass exploitation play.”
He says the sports network should have given it to someone who was much closer to actively involved in sports, such as a high school or amateur athlete.
