SportsCenter anchor Lisa Kerney has left ESPN after four years on the network. Kerney announced her departure Friday on Twitter, writing that she and ESPN had “agreed to part ways.”

“I’m incredibly proud of the work we accomplished together & grateful for the amazing friends I’ve made along the way,” she wrote.

Kerney joined ESPN in February 2014, after a stint as a sports anchor for CBS 2 in New York City. She regularly hosted the 11 p.m. SportsCenter, as well as other studio shows including Fantasy Football Now.

ESPN fantasy sports columnist Matthew Berry, who worked alongside Kerney on Fantasy Football Now, tweeted Friday that he was “bummed” by her departure, calling her a “great anchor, better person.”

ESPN has been shedding SportsCenter anchors steadily over the past year, beginning with the company’s mass layoffs last April and continuing with further departures since. Though Kerney does not seem to have been laid off, we don’t know what forces compelled her to leave. For example, Lindsay Czarniak exited ESPN somewhat abruptly last summer and only later revealed that she had left after the network asked her to take on a lesser role and less pay upon her return from maternity leave. It’s possible that Kerney was a bit lost in the shuffle as ESPN has reorganized its lineup.

Regardless, we wish Lisa Kerney the best wherever she lands next.
