Who says you can never go home again? Michelle Beadle will be leaving NBC and returning to ESPN, as reported by SI’s Richard Deitsch. Here are the early details:

SI.com has learned the NBC Sports host and Access Hollywood correspondent will return to the network where she enjoyed success as the co-host of SportsNation. Beadle left ESPN for NBC in May 2012 and did so on exceptionally good terms, a clear prelude to her returning now. ESPN president John Skipper is a huge fan of her work, and she’s championed both in-house and externally by Jamie Horowitz (who co-created SportsNation and helms Keith Olbermann’s ESPN2 show) and Kevin Wildes (the co-creator of SportsNation). Look for Beadle to ultimately host or co-host a New York-based show with another ESPN talent at some point. There is a chance she could appear on SportsNation initially as well. Beadle can officially leave NBC Sports in early March, according to a source.

This was a move a lot of people saw coming after her show The Crossover was canceled abruptly. NBC then seemingly froze her out so the move the makes sense.

Good luck to her with whatever new project she takes on.
