Sports anchor George Michael once called Lindsay Czarniak “the best hire I’ve ever made.” That hire is now leaving the D.C. market for ESPN. The 33-year-old has been hired, according to the Washington Post, as anchor and host of programs originating from its Bristol, Conn., studios. In other words, you are looking at the new feminine face of SportsCenter. Folks, this is a major hire. It’s like ESPN finding their new Katie Couric.
From the Czarniak file:
• Chill out. She’s engaged.
• Graduated from James Madison
• Father is Managing Editor at USA Today
• Has NASCAR knowledge; worked races for TNT
Czarniak has responded to only one congratulations on Twitter and that came from former George Mason basketball coach Jim Larranaga.
thanks Coach L. Will miss DC but very excited abt the new adventure + excited to follow yours. Hope all is going well in Miami!
