After seven years with the YES Network, pre and post-game reporter Kimberly Jones is leaving the network, according to Neil Best of Newsday.
It took me a while to warm up to Jones, or even to tell her apart from Nancy Newman, but I feel like she has really come into her own as a YES personality over the last two or even three years.
Her shining moment of course took place in Minnesota during the 2010 season when a Yankees fan snuck up behind her and took a bite of a pork chop she was holding as she discussed the foot at Target Field. It was unintentionally hilarious and will likely be a part of the YES Network’s blooper reals in the future.
Jones was actually asked by the YES Network to come back next season, but the two sides parted amicably. She doesn’t have a job yet, but the rumor is that she will hook on with the NFL Network. A job at WFAN is also a possibility as she does a lot of work for them too.
