The world of sports journalism has long been dominated by men on television and on the radio. However, there is a surging class of female sports journalists who are currently tearing it up in the industry with their amazing good looks and intelligent insight on the games. We pulled together 22 of the most beautiful women in sports journalism for your pleasure!
You wouldn’t hire plumbers who hadn’t ever done any plumbing services before, would you? Amanda Pflugrad has been in the world of sports before she became a sports journalist. Pflugrad was a cheerleader at the University of Oregon and now she is a reporter for the New York Jets.
Gardner started out with CBS Sports in 2012 as a reporter for college football. Eventually she worked her way through a few other sports before landing as a correspondent on CBSSports.com. Gardner worked her way up the ladder much like any other plumbing contractor with a slew of drain cleaning gigs ahead of him or her. Only, she probably looked better while doing it.
Ledlow comes to us by way of Fox Sports. Ledlow is a talented and beautiful journalist who has already worked for the biggest names in sports. Ledlow does reporting work for ESPN, NBC, and now Fox Sports Florida. She most covers college football and basketball.
April Rose is a model, actress, and former TV personality for Fox Sports Chicago. Rose used to host a show called, Chicago Faceoff with April Rose. Believe it or not, but fans weren’t tuning in to see the players.

Sam Ponder stepped in for Erin Andrews on College GameDay and took over the spot. Ponder works for ESPN as a reporter and a host. Maybe she isn’t as experienced as the next option, but she sure knows how to work the camera.
Jenn Brown has done it all in her life as a sports journalist. Brown used to work for ESPN and she now works for the NFL Network. Brown has already scored a pair of Emmy’s for her work and we think that they are well deserved. Brown has covered the Super Bowl, the WSOP, and even the X-Games. She’s kind of what you’d call, well, successful.
If graduating from Princeton University would turn plumbers into babes like Harlow, well, we think you’d have a few more blue collar students going through the school. Harlow works on the NFL Network as a host and she already has quite the work history behind her.
Curry first started working for Fuel TV before jumping onto NBC Sports. Now Curry is a sideline reporter for the L.A. Kings and we bet Kings’ fans are ecstatic about that. Curry currently reports for Fox Sports West.
Jenny Dell is another journalist who started out covering the Boston Red Sox for NESN. Now Dell is working for CBS as an NFL reporter and we can safely say that Sundays are better because of it. Dell had to leave NESN after beginning a relationship with an MLB player, Will Middlebrooks.
The NFL Network sure knows how to pick ’em, right? We might know where we look for our next gig. Molly Qerim works for the NFL Network as an anchor and she is also a big part of the radio world as she hosts NFL AM and NFL Fantasy Live.
Sainz is now one of the original, “Oh, wow” sot of journalists. Sainz has been popping eyes all over the world for years as a reporter for Aztec Deportes. Sainz is known as ‘The Woman of Sports’ all over Mexico. Sainz was also in the news for a little while after she was harassed by players in the New York Jes locker room while interviewing then-QB Mark Sanchez. Yeah, wow that story is old.
The WWE counts as a sport, right? Ah, oh well we’re going to count it just for Renee Young’s sake. Renee Young is probably stronger than any plumbing contractor that you’ve ever met — and she needs to be as a ringside host for the World of Wrestling. She’s also easy on the eyes too.

Sonders went from being a talented golfer in college to being one of the biggest faces in golf television. Admittedly that market is rather small, but with her on TV it might actually start to grow. Sonders also works for Fox Sports 1.
When you think of female sports journalists your mind probably instantly goes to Erin Andrews — and for good reason. Andrews is one of the most beautiful women on this list and one of the most accomplished journalists as well.
