If you’re wondering why you can’t tune in to the Back9Network and have stopped receiving emails from Ahmad Rashad’s brainchild, there’s a good reason: operations have been suspended due to a lack of funds.
Launched in 2011, Back9Network has seen Rashad along with friends Michael Jordan and others wax on all things golf and many unrelated subjects as well. Funny videos and beautiful babes are always up for debate.
“Management and the board of directors are planning next steps and will continue their efforts to secure long-term, operating capital,” the company said through its public relations firm Monday. “The company will keep the public informed with any new developments.”
Not paying back several loans, one of $14 million, appears to have been the dagger in the back for the network.
