Top 15 Hottest Sideline Reporters In Sports

When it comes to men in the sports broadcasting world, they’re as varied as the athletes they cover every day. Some are former athletes with a long history on the field or court, and some are just huge sports fans who saw the perfect way to engage with their obsession of choice. Some go to the gym on a daily basis and look like they could compete with some of the best athletes out there, and some definitely look like they spend most of their time sitting behind the sports desk. However, when it comes to female sports reporters, there’s one thing that most of them have in common – they’re absolutely gorgeous.

Now, look, we get it. A large percentage of sports fans are men and it makes sense that the networks would try to get viewers to watch their broadcasts and their shows by picking sideline reporters that are easy on the eyes. No one is saying that these female sideline reporters aren’t knowledgeable – most could probably school the average viewer in stats. However, it’s a bit tough to ignore the fact that in the past ten years or so, sideline reporters are looking more and more like supermodels.

Now, it’s not to say that every woman in sports journalism has to look like she’s just stepped out from a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover. There are plenty of women with a wealth of sports knowledge who are working for sports radio or covering their favorite teams and athletes for magazines and newspapers. It just so happens that, if you’re a woman who decides to spend your sports reporting career in front of the camera, chances are you’ll be gorgeous.

There’s probably not going to be any changes anytime soon, because obviously no one is complaining about seeing more beautiful women on their television screens every week. Here are 15 of the hottest sideline reporters in sports.

Haarlow is a smart cookie, attending Princeton and majoring in history before deciding to break into the sports reporting game. She started out working for ABC and reporting on the Sacramento Kings. Haarlow found that she enjoyed the rush of competition and the always changing nature of sports reporting, and eventually spent three seasons as the sideline reporter for the Portland Trail Blazers. Nowadays, Haarlow is a sideline reporter and host for Fox Sports Network, NFL Network, and Big Ten Network. While she might be a few years older than some of the 20-something aspiring sportscasters, she proves time and time again that she’s been so successful for a reason.
