Kaylee Hartung officially says goodbye to ESPN

KSR-1262

We’ve known for a while that Kaylee Hartung is leaving her job at ESPN for CNN, but today, Hartung made it official, posting this message on social media:

Best of luck to Kaylee in her new career. We’ll miss her on the sidelines at games, but she’s got one heck of a gig ahead of her. If you’ve got some time today, send her a message @KayleeHartung.

    Given the near-crisis level of things at ESPN right now, I’m glad to see her getting off that particular train.

      Well at least she is not going to Fox News to be sexually harassed and sexually assaulted by Roger

      No, she’s going to CNN to spew fake stories on the 100,000 viewers who still tune in to the legacy media.

      Ailes has not been at Fox News for many months now.

    Though I never watch CNN, she’s so darn cute I’ll at least keep 1 droopy eye on her.

    Are CNN and ESPN’s ratings really down that much? What channel is competing with ESPN?? For news I dunno. I get mine mostly from BBC and Vice these days…closest I can find to respectable news outlets these days.

      ESPN’s ratings are down about 20%, and it’s largely because of two things: (1) ESPN is focusing too much on politically-correct social stuff that sports fans don’t care about (at least not during the game) and (2) a growing number of millennial cord-cutters are deciding they can live without live sports.

      Third eye, they aren’t doing with out sports….just consuming it differently. not a millennial, but I am a cord cutter and I didn’t miss a single game this year. Unfortunately for ESPN (and CBS), I don’t get counted as a viewer

      That’s true…I should have said without live sports on TV. It’s possible to just watch the game at a sportsbar, at a friends, or to just steal it from those certain websites that are out there.

      ESPN is losing 10,000 subscribers per day. Literally. I know that seems crazy, but that’s reality. 10k per day. Hence all the people jumping ship the past few years. They are gonzo

    What a beautiful and classy young lady.

    ESPN just got worse.

    Maybe she can improve things at CNN. Lord knows they could use it.

    Kaylee does a great job. Wish she were still in sports or getting a better gig though. This is jumping from one sinking ship to another.
