A big shake-up is expected at the Kansas City area’s biggest company. The Wall Street Journal is reporting Sprint Chairman and Chief Executive William Esrey is planning to step down in a matter of days. The newspaper says that move isn’t too surprising, since Esrey – who is 63 – has been undergoing cancer treatments since November. The real surprise, according to the Journal, is talk by those within the company of the pending resignation of Sprint’s number two man, Ronald LeMay, who had been thought to be Esrey’s sucessor. Speculation now centers on BellSouth Vice Chairman Gary Forsee, who worked for Sprint for years until taking the BellSouth post in 1999. Sources within the company say Sprint is likely to go after Forsee to replace Esrey.
