Kaylee Hartung is set to leave ESPN.
According to reports, Hartung will be leaving the world of sports to take a job with CNN where she will become a national correspondent based in Atlanta.
The news comes from Ryan Glasspiegel of The Big Lead.
Hartung will begin her new role at CNN in April, according to the reports.
There is no official word, but some expectation that she will eventually resume her role as a sports reporter.
From The Big Lead:
At CNN, where Hartung is expected to begin in April, she will contribute news reporting and features as a national correspondent based in Atlanta. At the outset, she will not contribute to Turner Sports. However, given her time at ESPN, it would not be surprising if she eventually resumes sports reporting. CNN president Jeff Zucker made it known in the recruitment process that he was a fan of Hartung’s work.
ESPN and CNN have declined to officially comment at this time.
We will update you with more information as it becomes available.
