Atlanta native and former V-103 host Elle Duncan has been named a new “SportsCenter” anchor on ESPN starting May 9.

This is a huge deal for Duncan, who has spent the past two years as anchor, host and reporter for the New England Sports Network in Boston. NESN is a regional sports network and primary broadcaster for the Red Sox and Bruins coverage.

In a text today, Duncan said she’s “blessed. Anxious. Excited!” She will be working at ESPN headquarters in Bristol, CT. She isn’t sure what shifts she’ll be taking but is “just happy for the opportunity to learn.”

“It’s wonderful and well deserved,” said Rashan Ali, who worked with her as a Hawks sideline reporter and with V-103 for a year. “She put in the work and this opportunity is a testament of her many years and commitment to her craft.”

Duncan, at age 20 in 2003, started working with the 2 Live Stews before moving to V-103 and Ryan Cameron‘s show a year later. At V-103, she also worked as mid-day host and as part of Frank Ski and Wanda Smith’s morning show.

She then spent a year doing traffic for 11 Alive.

Over the years, Duncan worked as a Hawks sideline reporter, contributed to the Atlanta Falcons radio network pre- and postgame shows and did reporting for for SEC and ACC football games on Comcast Sports South.

She left for New England in late 2013.

“God remains amazing,” texted Cameron. “She’s done a great job and I’m beyond happy and excited for her.”
