Former SportsCenter Anchor Lindsay Czarniak To Cover Super Bowl For NBC4 In Washington

This is where the hosts of Sports Center sit.

Lindsay Czarniak will be back on the airwaves after stepping away from ESPN over the summer.

Before she took her job at ESPN in 2011, Lindsay Czarniak was a popular sports anchor at NBC4 in her native Washington D.C.

She's heading back there to cover the upcoming Super Bowl this February.

The station announced the move on Friday.

Lindsay Czarniak is coming home to NBC4 — temporarily.

Czarniak will report from Super Bowl LII at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis exclusively for the station she worked at for six years.

"Washington has always had a special place in its heart for Lindsay," said Vice President of News Mike Goldrick. "What a treat for our viewers to get to know her again during the week leading up to the most-watched event on television."

Czarniak quietly left ESPN in August, something that was not widely known until October, after she expressed her disappointment in the Worldwide Leader's decision to suspended SC6 anchor Jemele Hill. Sports Business Journal's John Ourand reports that it was Czarniak's decision not to renew her contract with ESPN.
