Shannon Hogan

MSG Networks has hired Shannon Hogan to take over as anchor and reporter for the Islander broadcasts this season.

The announcement doesn't come as a surprise, since word leaked on Twitter that Hogan would take over the job earlier this month. She replaces Peter Ruttgaizer, who held the position for the previous three seasons.

Hogan joins the Islanders telecast after four years at Fox Sports Detroit, where she covered the area's three major professional sports teams and college sports. She has also covered the 2010 US Open, 2010 World Series and the 2014 Winter Classic. Hogan was also the recipient of a Michigan Emmy Award in June for her work at Fox Sport Detroit.
