Kaylee Hartung is leaving ESPN.

The sideline reporter, who's been a big part of the network's college basketball and college football coverage, announced on Twitter this morning that she worked her final event for ESPN on Sunday night.

Hartung announced the news on Twitter.

Hartung has yet to announce where she's going, but it was reported by The Big Lead earlier this month that she's headed to CNN, where she'll start in April.

At CNN, where Hartung is expected to begin in April, she will contribute news reporting and features as a national correspondent based in Atlanta. At the outset, she will not contribute to Turner Sports. However, given her time at ESPN, it would not be surprising if she eventually resumes sports reporting.

With Sam Ponder leaving College GameDay for Sunday NFL Countdown, some had pegged Hartung as a potential replacement for her on ESPN's popular college football pregame show.
