ESPN is pulling all poker related programming and advertising in the wake of illegal gambling indictments for major poker related websites. In an e-mailed statement ESPN said “For the immediate future, we are making efforts to remove related advertising and programming pending further review.”

Sites like PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker sponsor many of the televised tournaments.  No word yet what exactly this means for the World Series of Poker or what other networks that carry poker-related programming (like NBC) plan to do.
