Cari revealed in one of her posts that she had thought long and hard before making her decision, and consulted her nearest and dearest before making the decision.

She also referred to her 7-year career on ESPN where she had evolved from hosting First Take to having her own show on SportsCenter.




In another tweet, Cari, 44, spoke glowingly of her experience in ESPN, which she cherishes, and revealed that she will always be proud of being part of the network's legacy.


Cari will be leaving ESPN at the end of January 2020, a swift exit that hints at a new project which Cari alludes too, but does not reveal. She wrote:


"I’m excited about the next chapter and will share soon!"

Cari studied at UCLA and won an internship at CNN. The avid sports fan worked for 3 years on The Tennis Channel before joining ESPN in 2012.

She became a host on First Take and an anchor on SportsCenter before getting her own show.

We wish Cari Champion all the best for her future projects and hope to see her back on the small screens very soon.



ESPN host Stuart Scott died four years ago, but the battle over his estate and his remains rages on.

His daughters Taelor and Sydni Scott have lodged a lawsuit claiming that the people in charge of the estate are not fulfilling their obligation towards the family and refuse to hand over their father's remains.

The sisters accuse the trustees of funding Scott's former girlfriend Kristin Spodobalski's luxurious lifestyle while ignoring their mother's financial needs.

Stuard Scott passed away in his home in Avon Connecticut at the age of 49, the victim of neuroendocrine cancer.
