University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

One of BBN’s favorite sideline reporters reportedly leaving ESPN

KSR-1262

Well here’s some news that will probably bring a tear to my boss’ eye. The Big Lead is reporting that Kaylee Hartung is leaving ESPN for CNN. Prior to joining the Worldwide Leader in 2012, Kaylee worked for CBS News in Washington DC and also as an assistant for “Face the Nation” host Bob Schieffer.

Kaylee is expected to start her new job as a news correspondent at CNN’s headquarters in April. Until then, she’s scheduled to work the SEC Tournament, including Kentucky’s quarterfinal matchup on Friday. Kaylee’s become a staple at Kentucky’s games this season, and I know that hearts across the Bluegrass are breaking.

You can send your condolences to @KySportsRadio, who probably looks like this right now:

    CNN is arguable the best news network out there now since the election. The town halls they’ve been doing have been great, and some of the most in depth, comprehensive coverage of any network. Won’t be surprise if Trump gets whatever is TV’s version of the Pulitzer.

      CNN is a joke and biased fake news.

      CNN doesn’t even pretend any longer that they are not merely propagandists for the left wing. They openly admit to being completely biased these days.

      Dudes, CNN has its bias, but let’s not pretend they’re putting out fake news. Unlike a certain network with their fake government official from Sweden. SAD.

      CNN/NYTimes and Fox/Brietbart are two sides of the same coin, fake-news-wise. They both serve the 1% by distraction and deflection.

      It IS fake news. How many fabricated stories before you accept it? Look at the WIkileaks stuff. They are a weaponized arm of the CLinton Foundation.

    Why would my heart break? Here’s a young woman following her dream, moving up from a sports sideline reporter to a news correspondent with one of the biggest cable new stations in the world.
    I’m happy for Kaylee. I’ll still see her as often as I ever did.

    Matt seriously man, step away from the ledge! All jokes aside I could see Matt getting involved in politics now to get a little closer to her again. She was so close man, now so far away…

      Matt has been getting involved in politics for a while now.

      lol people like you who reply seriously to a name called “shagaris sock puppet” when they were being sarcastic, is what is wrong with the world. Geeze, smoke a joint and sit on the couch and chill out man. Hang out with Jamal and Henry Clay. No duh Matt has been INTERESTED in politics, being involved means you are political member, which he is not. Hes runs a sports blog, but I guess in your eyes he is the Governor.

      Ohhhh so THAT’S sarcasm? Think I’ll try that here too although there’s no way I’ll be as good as you Mr. Puppet.

    I feel so sorry for her. CNN, she might as well go be a dUKe or UL reporter.

    I can only imagine the training. “This story is news but we aren’t going to report it. This story we’re not sure about but we’re going with it anyway. And this story is total bullsh*t but it’s our lead story.”

      They report a lot of entertainment garbage, but don’t buy the POTUS BS about fake news like some lemming. Exactly one of the big 24-hour news channels has been reporting fake crap, and that’s the one that put up a fake Swedish government official, which the President than believed.

    I expected to see she was leaving to settle down and raise Matt Jones babies.

    CNN is a great step up. Her boss won’t sexually harass her and she can report news rather than make believe like that other cesspool Floxed News

      The only way CNN would be a “step-up”, is if she was actually inside the gates of Hell right now. CNN is a joke and has been exposed for what they are, FAKE NEWS.

      Fake news = Trump’s entourage has been in constant contact with Russian officials? If that doesn’t bother you, than we don’t aspeak the same language.

      Curious. You realize the EXACT Russian ambassador that is in “constant contact” with Trump was at the OBAMA white house 22 times?? Or did CNN forget to mention this?

    When The Donald lies, she can say The Donald is lying, rather than The Donald has alternative facts (that are unsourced and known only to him and his sycophants.)

      Yes, ever since Trump was “OVERWHELMINGLY” elected (in his mind) dictator of the USA.

      Oh we have a dictator? So what rights have you lost? How’s your life changed for the worst in the past month or so since the inauguration? Please be specific.

    At least she is going to A REAL NEWS OUTLET. Any one that believes CNN is fake news is likely a redneck, uneducated, toothless hick that masturbates while watching college dropout Hannity

    I think I have a solution? Everybody that watches MSNBC and CNN has to switch to FOX and Talk Radio for a week, and everybody that watches FOX and listens to Rush and Mark Levin has to switch to MSNBC and CNN. Both sides might learn something?

    Dang, girl going to a sinking ship. Bad move. Their ratings are so bad that maybe they think a few pretty faces will stop the downward spiral. Too little. Too late.
