Earlier this month, ESPN and the SEC Network took a big hit when it was announced that SEC Network sideline reporter Kaylee Hartung would be leaving for a position at CNN.
Sunday night, Hartung worked her final event, watching Mississippi State’s women’s basketball team advance to its first Final Four in school history. Monday, Hartung posted a heartfelt goodbye to the fans that have followed her almost five-year career with ESPN.

Ryan Glasspiegel of The Big Lead reported earlier this month that Hartung’s job as a correspondent at CNN would begin in April.
Hartung came to ESPN after five years with CBS News. The Baton Rouge, La. native was a staple on SEC Network sidelines, as well as the pre-game show SEC Nation.
