AKRON, Ohio - ESPN host Dan LeBatard has been handed a two-day suspension after he erected a billboard that took aim at LeBron James' return to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Two rings, laid side-by-side anchor the right side of a billboard on Tallmadge Avenue in Akron. Beside them, the words: "You're welcome, LeBron. Love, Miami."
LeBatard already tried to place a similar message in both the Cleveland Plain Dealer and Akron Beacon Journal, but both newspapers rejected the ad .
The Akron Beacon Journal reports that seven more of the billboards are posted around Akron.
ESPN released a statement reporting that LeBatard will return to the air Monday, adding, "His recent stunt does not reflect ESPN’s standards and brand. Additionally, we were not made aware of his plans in advance."
