Rachel Nichols, who left ESPN for CNN in 2013, is heading back to the sports network, according to a report by Sports Illustrated.

From Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated:

She is expected to anchor her own program, contribute to SportsCenter and other platforms including E:60, and work on issue-oriented journalism. She is expected to start at ESPN in early 2016.

Known for being a tough but fair reporter, Nichols, 42, doesn’t back down to anyone, whether it’s NFL commissioner Roger Goodell or boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Nichols’ career at ESPN began in 2004.
