Big news out of Bristol (and Atlanta) yesterday. Rachel Nichols is leaving ESPN and joining CNN and Turner Sports. She will have her own weekend show on CNN and be a sideline reporter for NBA and MLB games. This was announced yesterday (by mistake) on CNN’s twitter account. Nichols confirmed after it was posted. This leaves ESPN with a huge void now.
I will say this… she was my favorite ESPN face to look at. She was smart, sexy and a redhead. Now… I got nothing to look at on ESPN. I guess I can watch it for “sports” but they do a terrible job at covering that most of the time as well. Best of luck to Rachel at CNN/Turner Sports.
