μεγάλη απώλεια

Tafoya Stepping Down From NBA Sideline

με λύπη μάθαμε ότι -η πολύ γνωστή από τις μεταδόεσεις του ESPN- Michele Tafoya δεν θα είναι πλεόν στα sidelines να παίρνει συνεντεύξεις. Η δαιμόνια, στρομπουλούλα (κάποτε;) ρεπόρτερ μας έχει προσφέρει άφθονα χαμόγελα (και γέλια ενίοτε) με την χαρακτηριστική της φωνή και το περίσσιο θράσος (και θάρρος) της καλώντας για συνέντευξη μέσα στο γήπεδο τα θηρία του NBA.

Μερικά κλιπάκια να την θυμόμαστε

ανταλλαγή φιλοφρονήσεων με τον Phil

η τελευταία; συνέντευξη σε γήπεδο NBA με τον εκστασιασμένο KG

να δω με τι άλλο θα ασχοληθούμε … η pre-season δεν αντέχεται … ας αρχίσουν τα παιχνίδιααααααα!

Michele Tafoya said Tuesday she has stepped down as the lead sideline reporter for ABC and ESPN’s NBA coverage. She will continue to work on ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” package and also will remain a regular on ESPN Radio on Wednesday afternoons

Tafoya made her decision to leave the NBA telecasts after being home for only four nights in a six-week span during last season’s playoffs.

“It was a grind, and it was hard on me and my family,” said Tafoya, who lives in Edina with her husband, Mark Vandersall, and their 3-year-old son, Tyler. “At that time I was really thinking about it. We just started re-negotiating my contract, and I just couldn’t do it again. ESPN has been really, really supportive.”

All of Tafoya’s assignments come with different contracts and her NBA deal was up. She’s in talks with ESPN about other potential assignments that wouldn’t call for travel.

“I might do more radio or some more dot-com stuff,” she said. “But the NFL already takes me away two to three days a week during the season, and I just didn’t want to do more than that.”
