On the Horizon: Charissa Thompson

Jul 20, 2008  •  Post A Comment

As the freshest face on Fox Sports’ “Best Damn Sports Show Period,” Charissa Thompson is one of the studio’s fast-rising stars. She has become a vital and versatile part of Fox’s coverage.
After starting as an assistant in the human resources department at Fox Sports, Ms. Thompson is a correspondent for “BDSSP,” where her sharp humor works well with co-hosts John Salley and Chris Rose. She moderates “BDSSP’s” college football debates and works as a correspondent for major sporting events.
“I keep waiting for someone to pinch me and tell me the dream is over, that I have to go back to having a real job,” Ms. Thompson said. “The opportunities I’ve been afforded are so wide-ranging and interesting—from Fox’s All-Star Game coverage to Big Ten Network football to ‘Best Damn Sports Show Period’—that it never stops being fun and challenging.”
Other duties lined up for the journalist include working for the Big Ten Network as a sideline reporter for the Saturday game of the week, co-hosting “FSN Baseball Report” and reporting for Fox Sports Networks’ “BCS Show.” She contributes special Web segments for Fox Sports.com and hosts FSN’s original rodeo competition, “Toughest Cowboy.”
The latest gig finds Ms. Thompson joining the likes of Pam Oliver and Chris Myers as a sideline reporter for NFL on Fox this season.
Ms. Thompson previously hosted “WNBA Weekly” and was a sideline reporter for men’s and women’s basketball games at the University of Denver and University of Colorado.
Her first appearance on FSN was as a reporter for “Rockies All-Access” on regional affiliate FSN Rocky Mountain. Her success on that show, which centered on the Colorado Rockies, led to her working Rockies games as the in-stadium reporter.
“The best thing about working for Fox is I never know where I’ll be reporting from next,” said Ms. Thompson.

  30. Amazing freakin blog here. I almost cried while reading it!

  31. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one these days.. 🙂

  32. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  33. Thanks for the fantastic work! Cool blog. You will find a number of opinions on this topic and this blog states the problem extremely good.

  54. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  55. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  56. l want to say this blog is very good .I always like to learn something new because I have the similar blog in my Country on this so this helps me a lot. I did search on the topic and found good number of blogs but nothing like this. Thanks for sharing so much in your blog.. Greets., Dorine Ziter
