Eric Williams, the long-time beat reporter for the San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers, has announced he is moving on from ESPN via his personal twitter account.
Some news. This will be my last dispatch for a bit, as I am moving on from ESPN. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working with the talented people there, but look forward to what lies ahead. Stay tuned. #freeagent. https://t.co/9XvChgOOMW— Eric Williams (@eric_d_williams) March 11, 2020
Williams has been covering the Chargers for ESPN since September 2013. He started the beat the same year that Tom Telesco was hired as the team’s general manager in January 2013 so he’s essentially been there since the start of this Chargers era.
This comes as just one more notable change surrounding this team and it’s media coverage from this past year. The Athletic hired Daniel Popper at the start of the 2019 season, the Chargers are without quarterback Philip Rivers for the first time since 2004, and the team is finally moving into their permanent home in Inglewood later this year. At this rate, there are going to be a lot of new faces on and around this team come the start of the regular season.
