CNN's Rachel Nichols Is Headed Back To ESPN

Longtime journalist Rachel Nichols is reportedly returning to ESPN to host her own daily show. CNN hired her in 2013 to boost its sports coverage.

"Are we really supposed to believe all these women are lying, including the incidents where there were witnesses like your own kids?" Rachel Nichols asked Mayweather.

... and Roger Goodell ... 

"You've had pretty extreme unilateral power in deciding discipline, but as you've said a few times, you've gotten it wrong in a few cases, and that tends to happen when there are no checks and balances.

CNN hired Nichols in 2013 to beef up its sports coverage. Nichols had her own show on CNN called "Unguarded" that went from a series to an occasional special to ultimately being cut because of declining viewership.

Before that, Nichols was at ESPN for almost a decade. She'll reportedly return to host her own daily show sometime in 2016.
