CNN’s Rachel Nichols: photos and bio

During the NCAA Tournament, sports are certainly getting their Rachel Nichols fix. Rachel Nichols is with CNN, part of the Turner Sports family which is broadcasting much of the tourney. Sports fans and media consumers everywhere used to joke that every time Brett Favre moved, sneezed, went to the bathroom or even breathed- ESPN’s Rachel Nichols was there. I’m speaking of course about Favre’s three year period in which he retired/unretired 1,298 times and held the media and fan bases of the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings and New York Jets hostage.

Later the Rachel Nichols joke applies to the soon to be NBA champion Miami Heat.

BTW, isn’t that screen grab above just priceless (photo credit here)
