Jenn Brown, the former college football sideline reporter at ESPN, has signed a deal with the NFL Network. Brown, who broke the news to The Big Lead this morning, starts Thursday, hosting Total Access.
“I’m thrilled to get back to the NFL,” she told us this morning by phone from LA. “The first sports job I had was on Inside the NFL. Covering college football for ESPN was a great time and I learned a lot, but it’s good to get back to the NFL.”
Brown left ESPN in March. She’ll take over hosting Total Access for Amber Theoharis, who is on maternity leave. Brown said she likely will host the show through the preseason, and then she’ll be in the rotation with Theoharis and others during the season.
