Pottsville’s very own Russ Joy, I mean Kacie McDonnell, is moving on from NESN up in Boston.
A story on the WEEI sports radio website reveals that her contract expires next month.
From the article:
I’m not sure what’s next for me,” she said. “I’m taking a breath.”
McDonnell added she plans to spend time this summer catching up with friends and family in Pennslyvania, (sic) where she is from.
NESN declined comment, citing company policy about speaking on internal matters.
McDonnell, 29, joined the regional sports network in August 2016. She’s primarily worked at the anchor desk, hosting “NESN Sports Today” and other highlight shows. This season, McDonnell has hosted the “Social Stretch” segment during Red Sox games.
Kacie is still dating Eric Hosmer, who is now with the Padres. Maybe she could get a job in sunny California. San Diego is no Schuylkill County, but it’s still a nice place.
