draftkingsDraftKings pulled its advertising from ESPN on Tuesday after the daily sports company became engulfed in questions this week about possible insider trading. Asked if the company’s advertising has changed, an ESPN spokesman told USA TODAY Sports that “Draft Kings made the decision to pull their advertising for today, which we have obliged.” It’s not clear if the programming will be pulled beyond Tuesday. Meanwhile, ESPN also had made a separate decision to scale back on DraftKings sponsorship graphics and language within its programming. ESPN spokesman Paul Melvin said this was being done to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest.
