I no longer work at ESPN. I’m really grateful for my time here. I made incredible friendships and valuable mistakes.”
“We thank Katie for her contributions to ESPN and wish her luck in the future,” ESPN said in a statement. “This year of slowing down has affected me on a cellular level,” Nolan wrote. “If you listen to the podcast this isn’t news to you. What’s next for me is to figure out how/where/when this new me can use the skills the old me acquired to make the stuff I think needs making. And maybe a vacation?”
