Sports fans are unhappy with Bell Media.

The Canadian media conglomerate let go more than 200 employees this past week, including sportscaster Dan O’Toole, co-host of the popular TSN highlights show SportsCentre with Jay and Dan.

O’Toole and longtime running mate Jay Onrait returned to Canada and TSN in 2017, after four years with Fox Sports 1 in the United States.

Other well-known TSN sportscasters included in the recent layoffs include longtime Ottawa reporter Brent Wallace, and SportsCentre anchor Natasha Staniszewski according to one report.

“We have made some changes at TSN as we streamline the organization,” a Bell Media spokesperson told Daily Hive. “The changes have affected some on-air personalities, who depart with our sincere thanks for their contributions to the network and the sports community.”

These layoffs have left sports fans very unhappy, and they took to social media to express their frustration.
