After her work with Turner, McDonnell moved to KHSB as a reporter, before moving to Boston to work as an anchor for NESN, or New England Sports Network, a regional sports network owned by Fenway Sports Group, also the owner of the Boston Red Sox and the Liverpool Football Club in the English Premier (soccer) League (EPL). They hold 80% of the interest while 20% is with Delaware North which owns the Boston Bruins and the TD Garden. The network is known as the primary broadcaster of games for the Red Sox and the Bruins, with exclusivity for home games not broadcast nationally. They also air minor league baseball games, regional college events, sports talk shows, and outdoor shows. They even have delayed broadcasts of EPL soccer games.
For her personal life, it is known that Kacie was previously engaged to then quarterback Aaron Murray. The couple started dating in 2013 and often travelled long distances due to the nature of their work. They got engaged, but called it off a few weeks later, with no reasons publicly stated. She went on to say that it was best to part ways and that she wanted to move on with her life.
