Here’s a profile of Champion in Tennis View Magazine – she went to UCLA and graduated with a degree in English – and according to Urban Dictionary (weird, I know), she was once fired from an Atlanta TV station for dropping an MF on air accidentally.
According to this link, though, she got her job back. Previously: 5 Names Rumored to Be in the Mix for the First Take Job Previously: Why is Heidi Watney Already Interviewing at ESPN When She Just Got to Time Warner Cable?
On Friday, Jessica Moran, a Red Sox reporter for Comcast Sports Net New England, resigned following questions over whether she was having a relationship with the team’s manager, John Farrell. “I have stepped away from Comcast Sports Net as I thought it was in my best personal and professional interest to do so,” Moran, who had been with the network since 2009, wrote in a text to the Globe.
The Globe reports that there had been “speculation among local and national baseball reporters about Farrell’s relationship with Moran” in the days leading up to the resignation, possibly kicked off after Farrell was listed as “not married” in the Red Sox 2016 media guide released last week.
Champion was selected over Heidi Watney and Jemele Hill (among others) and will sit between Skip Bayless and Stephen A.
Spring training is in full swing, with the first set of games in the books.And while players work on returning to playing form, the media report on the teams’ progress and other camp happenings.Farrell confirmed that he and his wife of 30 years, Sue Farrell, are getting a divorce, but would not comment on his relationship with Moran; “My private life is private,” he said.But the most bizarre part about all of this story may not be the alleged relationship between Moran and Farrell.
So it may have caught some by surprise when some of those happenings included an alleged relationship between a member of the media and someone on a team that person covers.That is, unless someone said it involved the Boston Red Sox.
