Nine years after being hired as an ESPN sports reporter, Rachel Nichols will be leaving to work with CNN and Turner Sports (via USA Today). The woman has been an ESPN institution since 2004. She, along with other prominent female reporters like Erin Andrews and Pam Oliver, has been providing hope for young girls with dreams of working in sports journalism.
In honor of her work at ESPN, it only seems fitting to do a retrospective of some of her biggest interviews and most interesting stories. She’ll be doing more or less the same job at CNN, but this is the end of an era. It deserves a little commemoration.
