Kirk gives us today's headlines: John Kerry is switching islands. Jesse Watters makes odd comment about Ivanka Trump. Marty Walsh comments on the Boston 2024 book. Pre-NFL Draft talk.
Hour 4. Kirk questions the show about whether or not anyone would have relations with another man while in prison. Jemele Hill threatened Kirk on Twitter, but did she delete her tweet?
Larry Army Jr., Kyle Kennedy's attorney, joins Kirk, Gerry and Meter to talk about yesterday's press conference and elaborate on a few of his comments.

[0:01:41] ... directed to do we did yesterday. If if there was no were romantic relationship between your client Aaron and and this. Wouldn't eat demand would need ask you order you to say that. I don't know ...
[0:04:01] ... I'm sure Larry but you're not gonna scare away DMZ here the Daily Mail if they wanna hire a helicopter. Cool your clients father's house there's still gonna do after yesterday's press conference. Well we guess ...




Hour 3. Kyle Kennedy's lawyer joins K&C to talk about yesterday's press conference . K&C insider Rabbit calls in to talk about the news surrounding Kyle Kennedy.
Hour 2. Curtis went to a press conference for Kyle Kennedy yesterday, who has been connected to Aaron Hernandez in prison. The guys breakdown the Celtics' playoff series so far.
Hour 1. Kirk, Gerry and Meter go over the long list of ESPN employees that were let go yesterday, and realize a certain pair of names not on the list. The callers weigh in on the public's influence on ESPN.

None of the several dozen employees who ESPN canned Wednesday expressed animosity towards the WorldWide Leader on their way out the door.

Kirk Minihane did it for them.

While watching “SC:6″ with Jemele Hill and Michael Smith, Minihane offered up a less than flattering take about the show.

Despite receiving ample promotion, Smith and Hill have been unable to gain a steady audience for their new venture. As of last month, ratings for the 6:00 p.m. edition of “SportsCenter” were down 12 percent from 2016 –– on par with “Pardon the Interruption.”

The reaction to the program has been harsh as well. Yahoo finance writer Daniel Roberts tweeted this week roughly 50 percent of the 3,000 comments he received on a story about ESPN’s layoffs were people pleading with the company to cancel “SC:6.”

Hill, though, isn’t taking the criticism sitting down. After declining an invitation to join “Kirk & Callahan,” she said she wants to meet Minihane “face to face.”

If that confrontation aired on “SC:6″ one night, perhaps the show would finally draw a rating.

AROUND THE WEB:

— In an appearance on Andy Cohen’s Sirius XM channel, Radio Andy, on Wednesday, Caitlyn Jenner said she is sure O.J. Simpson killed Nicole Brown Simpson in 1994.

“I knew he did it,” Jenner told Cohen.“There was three people at the crime scene: DNA evidence, three people at the crime scene. Pick a murderer. How hard is that?”

Nicole Simpson was a close friend of Kris Jenner, whose late husband Robert Kardashian was an attorney for O.J. in the murder trial. Jenner said even though Kardashian believed Simpson to be innocent, “Kris was on my side.”

“After the whole thing was over Robert just said to me, ‘I would have been OK if they got him in the first trial.’ That’s the only thing he ever said and that’s about the closest he’ll ever come, [while] never saying he actually did it,” Jenner said.

She said after the first trial, “[Kardashian] was now the guy who helped [Simpson] get away with murder and he was destroyed by everybody. And I felt terribly sorry for him.”

Jenner also said Kris “pretty much knew. We were just obviously very disappointed with the verdict.”

— ESPN laid off a massive number of employees on Wednesday. In response, members of the sports media world tweeted their reactions to the news:
