ESPN President and Disney Media Networks Co-Chairman John Skipper resigned Monday, citing a struggle with addiction.

“Today I have resigned from my duties as President of ESPN,” Skipper said in a statement.

“I have struggled for many years with a substance addiction,” he added. “I have decided that the most important thing I can do right now is to take care of my problem.

“I come to this public disclosure with embarrassment, trepidation and a feeling of having let others I care about down.
