Minnesota radio personality Michele Tafoya is leaving the cable sports network ESPN, her home since 2000. "Michele was a great contributor to ESPN's NFL and NBA coverage," said network spokesman Bill Hofheimer. "We part ways amicably and wish her the best."

There is speculation that Tafoya, the former "Monday Night Football" sideline reporter who now steers WCCO Radio's afternoon show, is headed to NBC, but she couldn't be reached Thursday to confirm the move.
