    Shes going to anchor her own weekend sports show, and do NBA stuff for Turner Sports.

    Don't know her well but happy for her. Classy and talented.

    ESPN's doing a great job training women journalists to go on to bigger and better things. Good for them!

    She has twin baby girls...not easy to keep up with the demands of espn and also be home with babies. Very happy for her.

    She's come a long way from her days of "I'm Rachel Nichols, ESPNNNNNNNNNN..." and she was damn good even back then.

    I understand this deal will allow her to make appearances on CBS too. Great to hear... :)

    I like her radio personality -- very live and with-it personality and delivery.

    Knew her when she was still Rachel Alexander. Could not be happier for her. One of the nicest people around.

    Never been huge on her. Know she's a very good reporter, does her job well, etc.

    Just comes off on camera as being very overcoached. Unnatural on camera. Tries too hard, with the voice thing, and the gestures, and the smile and "Isn't that interesting?" head tilts, as well as her obviously rehearsed signoffs.

    Stylistic thing. Everyone I know who has had encounters with her says she's great, and really nice.

    Hopefully this time, CNN will successfully gain a better foothold. No Bob Knight to get fired this time around.

    I like her work. She's the daughter of Diane Sawyer and Mike Nichols, right? Good genes if so.
