According to the former ESPN announcer, his two-year contracts with ESPN and ABC that expire March 2012 contain a narrow "failure to perform" clause, which allows for termination based upon inadequate preparation, lack of punctuality, insubordination or an "act of moral turpitude".
ESPN spokesperson commented that the agency believes its action to terminate Franklin was appropriate. In 2005, Franklin was reportedly involved in an on-air incident when he called Holly Rowe, an other sideline reporter, "sweetheart". The ESPN ombudsman at the time called Franklin's tone demeaning.
