NESN is saying goodbye to two popular personalities. A few weeks ago, NESN host Kathryn Tappen decided to leave the regional sports network, but now Jade McCarthy has also decided to call it quits.
Tappen has decided to exit in order to pursue an opportunity over at the NHL Network. This echoes the move made by former NESN reporter Hazel Mae, who left the net in 2008 to become a host and reporter at the MLB Network. McCarthy, however, will be returning to Philadelphia, where she worked at NBC O&O WCAU until 2009. Her husband was recently hired in the City of Brotherly Love and the decision was made to make the move before the birth of their child later this year.
NESN Daily weekender Randy Scott will replace Jade in the interim until a permanent replacement can be found. No word yet on who will replace Kathryn Tappen.
