Erik Bragg was the Creative Director of ETN since its launch in 2016. Today, he announced his departure from the skateboarding pay-per-view network via the latest episode of The Nine Club Experience. The separation comes as a result of creative differences with the new management.
I thought it [working for ETN] was a really cool opportunity. But then, [Brian] Atlas left. The company was growing. It was a bigger beast. And he had never ran a network before. He kept relying on other people, like, “How do you do this network thing?” Finally, he was like, “Maybe I’ll hire a network guy to run the network thing.” Basically, that dude and I didn’t really see eye-to-eye on the programming strategy.
