Charissa Thompson just began hosting SportsNation, ESPN’s social media-driven sports talk show, last July, but she is reportedly already on her way out. The Big Lead’s Jason McIntyre cites multiple sources saying that Thompson will leave ESPN and return to FOX Sports, where she previously spent time as a sideline reporter and co-host of The Best Damn Sports Show Period. Representatives from both networks chose not to comment on the situation, and McIntyre reports that it is unclear at this time what Thompson’s role at FOX would be. Should she leave ESPN, though, she would be the latest in a line of prominent female sports personalities to leave the network over the past two years, following Erin Andrews (who also left for FOX), Rachel Nichols (CNN) and former SportsNation host Michelle Beadle (NBC). FOX’s new sports-only network, FOX Sports 1, is scheduled to launch August 17.

Yay or nay on these St. John's Prep jerseys? http://t.co/jROJvW60NM— Brendan Hall (@BHallESPN) May 03, 2013 Video of the night These Syracuse guys love them some Jim Boeheim.
