ESPN’s Kaylee Hartung is set to leave her position as a college sports reporter for the Worldwide Leader.
After reports began to swirl earlier this month, Hartung took to social media to confirm she will be leaving her current gig for a new chapter of her career. Hartung’s final event with ESPN was on Sunday night.
In an Instagram post, Hartung stated:
“Last night I worked my final event for ESPN. The decision to leave a job I love and take on a new challenge has been incredibly emotional, but the overwhelming feeling I have today is gratitutde. I am so grateful for the experience I’ve had within the ESPN family for nearly five years. I’m grateful for the people I’ve worked with who have supported me, made me a better reporter, made me a better person and became my friends.
“I’m grateful for the coaches, athletes, staffers and university officials who’ve shared their stories with me and let me be a part of their magical moments. I’m grateful for the fans who have embraced me and shared their passion with me. Thank you to everyone who’s been a part of my life during this incredibly fun and exciting chapter. I can’t wait to see what this next chapter has in store… Now I get to be a fan of you all!”
While there is no official word on where Hartung will be headed, there are previous reports indicating she could be heading for a job with CNN.
Best of luck to Kaylee in her next venture.
