Chris Broussard is jumping ship in hopes of finding love.
The longtime NBA reporter is leaving ESPN after 12 years, and heading to Fox Sports 1, in a role that has yet to be defined.

ESPN released this statement on the matter:
“While we attempted to re-sign Chris, we want to thank him for his contributions to our NBA coverage and wish him the best,” ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz told Mike McCarthy of Sporting News. “We have an impressive array of NBA voices who will continue to help make our NBA coverage thrive.”
FS1 doesn’t have an NBA show, but according to Michael McCarthy of the Sporting News — Broussard will likely partner with former NBA player Jim Jackson on a yet to be named debate-style format at the network.
