When Walsh got pregnant again sometime later, she went above and beyond to make sure her job was safe before going on maternity leave.
Just days before returning from the leave, the April layoffs took place.

For those unfamiliar with the event, Copa Combate is Combate Americas’ one-night MMA tournament that will feature eight fighters representing their native countries. Sterger will be part of the English side of that historic simulcast.
He apologized in a statement to the Globe, saying the picture is “personally embarrassing and I did not mean any offense.” Sterger did not get the job she was up for.
When ESPN informed her, the company said it decided to instead hire a woman with more experience, but also noted that she could have shown “more professional behavior” during the interview process. He is now one of the prominent fantasy sports voices in the country.
GOOD MORNING AMERICA - George Stephanopoulos' exclusive interview with Jenn Sterger airs on ABC News' 'Good Morning America' Tuesday, April 12th and Wednesday, April 13th.
Sterger is a former Jets game-day host and model who was embroiled in a tabloid scandal after racy photos and voicemails allegedly from NFL quarterback Brett Favre surfaced.
Walsh was so concerned about her job security after the conversation with Mc Quade that she did not call in sick after beginning to bleed from a miscarriage while in Alabama on assignment.
It certainly wasn’t my intent.” ESPN said Thursday that Lawrence’s claims have been investigated and “are entirely without merit.” The network also released screenshots of text messages between Buccigross and Lawrence in an attempt to show they "had a consensual, personal friendship that spanned months." Jenn Sterger, who while working for the Jets allegedly received nude selfies from Brett Favre, says that she was all but forced to go into a Charlotte, N. strip club during her 2006 months-long audition for an on-air job at the network.
Following a group dinner that Sterger attended with company employees and many male job candidates, Matthew Berry, who was interviewing for a position for The Fantasy Show, planned a trip to a strip club.
Jade Mc Carthy and Lindsay Czarniak have similar stories about pregnancy hurting job security at ESPN.
Mc Carthy says she lost chances at being on-air when she became pregnant and upon returning from maternity leave was taken off the weekend broadcasts of Sports Center.
