Katie Nolan officially started at ESPN this week, but still hadn’t debuted on the air. That changed on Thursday, when Nolan popped up on Thursday’s edition of Highly Questionable alongside Dan Le Batard and Papi.

It also took her roughly two minutes to go on an anti-Yankees rant, which was appreciated.

And in another layup, a Roger Goodell rant!

The show continued on with the usual Highly Questionable shenanigans. Overall, it was a pretty tame debut, but I don’t think anyone really expected her to come in on her first day on air and start peeling off rants about social issues.

Letting her debut in Highly Questionable, a three person show with a seasoned talent in Le Batard urging her along, was the right move so she wouldn’t need to carry the entire show on her own.

One appearance on Highly Questionable doesn’t tell us much about what her future role will be – the show has had a plethora of cohosts in recent months. However, at the end of the show, she did announce that she’ll be back on Friday’s show, so stay tuned.
