It may take a minute, but I better get used to spelling @sportscenter with “ER” now, because I’ve joined @espn! I’m so jacked about this opportunity. Honestly, I feel so fortunate and blessed. I can’t wait to start this new exciting chapter of my career with my family by my side in Connecticut. To those who’ve reached out on social media over the last little while, I appreciate all the love. Seriously, thank you 👊🏽 . With that being said, the change is bittersweet. @tsn_official is a special place with a ridiculous amount of talent on-camera and behind the scenes. The experiences I went through have set me up for the next step I’m about to take. Special shoutout and a huge THANK YOU to all those I worked with along the way. It’s truly a team effort to make TV. And, we got the best in the biz doing that on a nightly basis. Gonna miss the laughs, newsroom 💩 talk, late nights (except the 2am rule 😝), but most importantly the people. Made some life-long friendships at TSN. Those will never change. Leaving Toronto won’t be easy for our growing family. I first moved here in 2010 from the west coast. An intimidating city quickly turned into the place I identify as home. I LOVE this city. We’ve made so many great friends and we were lucky to have incredible family support along the way. By the time I start work, it will have been about a month and a half since I last worked. I’m almost 100 percent sure I’ve put on a few lbs in that time—which ain’t great when you have aggressively slim fitted suits. Time to get back to the grind. So pumped for what’s to come. Let’s go! ✌🏽 . . . . #espn #tv #sports #sportsbroadcasting #sportscaster
