Former Channel 10 weekend sports anchor Kathryn Tappen, who has been NESN's hostess for Bruins pre- and postgame programs since 2006, is leaving for a job with the NHL Network, according to Boston.com's Chad Finn.
Tappen is married to Jay Leach, a former Providence College defenseman who now plays for the New Jersey Devils. She ran track and cross-country at Rutgers and was an Academic All-American.
Tappen and Leach met in 2005 during the NHL lockout, when Leach was playing for the Providence Bruins, and Tappen was working for Channel 10.
"We both had off on Mondays and were able to hang out a lot, and I soon realized that he has a great, light-hearted personality," Tappen told The New York Times.
They've been married since 2009.
