Expressing a need to be closer to her family, Red Sox field reporter Tina Cervasio is leaving her post at NESN effective at the end of March.
“These last two years working with NESN and covering the Red Sox have been both a privilege and an honor,” Cervasio said. “At this time in my career, I have chosen to pursue other opportunities that would afford me the chance to be closer to my family. I want to thank everyone that I have worked with, both at NESN and the Red Sox. It was an extraordinary experience that I will never forget and will look back upon with great pride. I would also like to thank my colleagues in the Boston media who made the rigors of covering sports in New England a joy.”
Cervasio joined NESN in 2006, when she finished a two-year stint as a reporter for WCBS in New York. While Cervasio's husband remained in New Jersey pursuing his own career goals, Cervasio found herself splitting time between the two cities often whenever she had the chance.
Neither she, nor NESN, revealed her immediate career plans, but a report from the Inside Track earlier this month rumored that she might be headed to New York's Fox 5.
“Tina expressed to us a need to be closer to her family and travel less,” NESN vice president of programming and executive producer Joel Feld said. “We are appreciative of everything she has done for NESN and wish her the very best.”
