ESPN: Woman who had affair with Phillips was fired

BRISTOL, Conn. — An ESPN spokesman says the sports network has fired the production assistant whose affair with baseball analyst Steve Phillips led to his termination.

Spokesman Mike Soltys (SAWL'-tiss) said Monday that Brooke Hundley was fired. He declined to say when she was fired or why. Hundley did not immediately return a phone message, and no one answered the door at her home in Bristol on Monday.

Connecticut-based ESPN fired Phillips on Sunday night, less than a week after he admitted to an affair with the 22-year-old assistant. A representative for Phillips has also said he is entering a treatment facility.

ESPN says Phillips' ability to be an effective representative of the Disney-owned network had been "irreparably damaged."

Phillips is a former general manager of the New York Mets.
