While various sources have been indicating this is the case, this is the first official confirmation from either ESPN, NBC or Beadle that she is leaving.
We’re not sure of her last day, but there are indications that Michelle will have a role on NBC’s Olympic coverage in London this summer and appear on various NBC Sports big events (Super Bowl, Olympics, maybe even the Kentucky Derby) before contributing to the Today show and becoming co-host of Access Hollywood.
