Jason Concepcion, a multi-platform talent at The Ringer known for his podcast appearances and digital show “NBA Desktop,” is leaving the company. Concepcion first joined Bill Simmons’ media companies as a staff writer for ESPN’s Grantland in 2013.
As host of “NBA Desktop” — a digital show about NBA Twitter — Concepcion was part of The Ringer’s team that won the 2019 Sports Emmy for Outstanding Digital Innovation.
Hours after Concepcion’s announcement, popular NBA writer and podcaster Haley O’Shaughnessy announced that she would also be leaving The Ringer after about four years on staff.
The Ringer was acquired by Spotify for roughly $200 million in February.
