How dedicated is Christian Ponder to his developing relationship with ESPN sideline reporter Samantha Steele? He’s been traveling around the country with her…
Is it possible that ESPN sideline reporter Samantha Steele has been secretly dating Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder right under our nose? A…
We've been waiting for the post-Erin Andrews era of college football sideline reporting and it's officially here. Women who went to school to become the next Pageviews, get their shot this fall as Andrews moves to the Fox studio and Samantha Steele gets the Thursday night assignment. Jenn Brown, now the senior sideline reporter, leaves Thursdays for Saturday afternoons. As for Fox, they're unleashing rookie Julie Alexandria on Saturday nights. JUMP!
Nothing like being crowned Miss Florida 2012 to put some pressure on Erin Andrews. Laura McKeeman, a Fox Sports sideline reporter, was named Miss Florida 2012 over the weekend and will compete in January's Miss America pageant. Meanwhile, Pageviews makes her Fox debut at tonight's all-star game. Could a sexy sideline rivalry be brewing at Fox over the next several years. It'll happen if ESPN doesn't steal McKeeman first. JUMP!
Yep, Erin Andrews leaves ESPN on a Friday and is on the Dan Patrick Show by Tuesday morning. You know the rules for ESPN talent - no appearances on the DP Show until you leave the mothership. Fox Sports' biggest publicity hire in years spent over 10 minutes talking about her career, why sideline reporters are important and why she left ESPN. We also learned that Pageviews will be working the baseball playoffs and on NFL sidelines. JUMP!
This video of Sara Carbonero nearly being killed by a soccer ball is just now making its way across the pond but should raise some eyebrows from the sideline reporter community. Imagine Aaron Rodgers throwing a laser at Pam Oliver's badonk. Imagine Josh Hamilton throwing gas from center at Ken Rosenthal. That's what we're talking about here from the foot of Marvin Martin. How dare this scum pull such a move at the Euro Cup. JUMP!
Earlier in the week, photos surfaced of Erin Andrews and Charissa Thompson enjoying some fun in the sun in Miami. Oh, yeah, and…
Normally we'd just leave Erin Andrews alone and not talk about her attending the White House Correspondents' Dinner unless she was drunk or sucking neck with Bob Schieffer. But then Pageviews goes and prods us to post something about this ridiculous dress she wore Saturday night in D.C. Head to knees everything seems to be in order and very White House dinner-y. And then the wild ass action gets rolling on the red carpet. JUMP!
Our old friend Molly Sullivan has finally landed a big time East Coast job where sideline reporters become noticed instead of languishing in Las Vegas. We happened to be in the same Playboy fantasy football league with Molly last season with plenty of other C-listers. Little did we know that Meridith Marakovits would get called up to the YES Network & the 76ers would have a sideline opening. One thing leads to another and Molly gets the CSN job. Philly is on notice. JUMP!
Guess how many sideline reporters (that we know of) were at Jenn Brown's Easter weekend wedding. GUESS! One. Bonnie Bernstein. Brown, of ESPN Thursday Night Football fame, married actor Wes Chatham during an outdoor ceremony in Georgia and followed the nuptials with a reception where Bonnie snapped off a couple shots of our one-time sideline crush. We hope the couple enjoys the tomato knife we bought for them. PHOTOS! JUMP!
Yes, Boston, we know you have a new sideline reporter. Thanks for telling us on Twitter, via email, etc. Of course we were aware of Jenny Dell when she got Heidi Watney's old Red Sox sideline reporting gig. Sure, Jenny has a great collection of photos from her pre-NESN days. But Jenny isn't the only rookie who made her MLB debut last week. Our old friend Britt McHenry did the same for Fox Sports San Diego as the voice of Padres' sidelines. JUMP!
It's amazing how good we are at discovering sideline reporting talent and then watching that talent flourish into the future of sideline reporting. Take Meredith Marakovits. Way back in 2010 BC was telling readers about this East Coaster who was tearing up the sports scene whether it was in Philadelphia or New York. A couple years later and she's getting Kim Jones' job at the YES Network, according to the network. JUMP!
Ever watched 'America's Next Top Model?' Yeah, same here. Would you watch 'America's Next Top Sideline Reporter?' Yeah, same here. We'd be glued to our TV as Lingerie Football League sideline reporter Lauren Gardner battles with sideline reporter Britt McHenry in halftime interviews with angry football coaches. Could you imagine Laura McKeeman battling Amanda Pflugrad over the use of busted coverage in a sentence. Guys, this needs to happen. JUMP!
As we've mentioned time and time again, the University of Oregon should be honored with awards for being the finest sideline reporter school in the United States. Whether it's former UO cheerleader Katelynn Johnson working sidelines or Stephanie Essin with big sideline reporting dreams, this school is like the Harvard Law of sideline reporters. Amanda Pflugrad might have the best chance to become the next 'it' girl for American men fascinated by women working mics. JUMP!
Did you expect anything less from Busted Coverage and Coed from the GQ party last night here in Indianapolis? We gave the lovely Ashley Salazar (@ashleycmsalazar) a microphone, access to famous athletes/celebrities and let her go wild getting comments from men who were enamored with our sideline reporter. Was it a lack of journalistic etiquette when she got on stage to dance with LL Cool J? Like we care. GQ wanted to have a party, so we had a party. JUMP!
