ESPN hires Josina Anderson

josinaanderson

Regular PFT readers know we routinely credit Josina Anderson of FOX 31 in Denver for breaking major NFL news. With her solid reporting chops we knew it was only a matter of time before Anderson left FOX 31 for a job that gave her a higher profile, and now that job has come along.

ESPN announced today that it has hired Anderson as a Chicago-based bureau reporter covering the NFL, as well as the NBA and other sports.

Anderson will be a great addition to ESPN’s NFL reporting team. She’s had impressive scoops on significant stories related to the NFL’s drug testing program, major contract signings and the tragic deaths of Broncos players Darrent Williams, Damien Nash and Kenny McKinley.

In addition to working for FOX 31, Anderson served as a correspondent on Showtime’s Inside the NFL last season.

    Oh god, she’s so dumb… and she thinks so so smart.

    She’s hot, that’s all she brings to the table.

    I hope her first interview is with NFL free agent Clinton Portis.

    Looks fine too. And a Tar Heel pedigree to boot. What’s not to like.

    From that picture….She looks like a “10″ In my opinion….WOW!!!!

  9. sterilizecromartie says: Aug 17, 2011 4:47 PM

    Send her to Jets camp for an Ines Sainz-type hazing.

  10. trbowman says: Aug 17, 2011 4:49 PM

    I never watch ESPN outside of games.

    Worst “reporter” who’s ever come through the Denver area. Unless doing nothing but tweeting is considered reporting these days.

  12. fu7ur3pr00f says: Aug 17, 2011 4:50 PM

    She’s moving to Chicago?!?

    And……is she single???

  13. scoops1 says: Aug 17, 2011 4:53 PM

    as long as if she doesn’t give her opinion like Jemele Hill and sticks to reporting facts

  14. champ1118 says: Aug 17, 2011 4:55 PM

    Hmmm….nice! I may have to start watching ESPN.

    “Come to Butthead… Uuhh huh huh… huh huh…”

  16. jkjdawg1 says: Aug 17, 2011 5:02 PM

    i love the comments talking about how dumb she is. Who cares if she’s about as sharp as a bag of doorknobs? she’s fun to watch with the sound off!

  17. jkjdawg1 says: Aug 17, 2011 5:03 PM

    solid chops and impressive scoops. Nice.

  18. rc33 says: Aug 17, 2011 5:08 PM

    Very nice.
    Now go get Heidi Watney will ya?

    Long overdue.

  19. doe22us says: Aug 17, 2011 5:15 PM

    Is she better than Rachel Nicols???

  20. qdog112 says: Aug 17, 2011 5:25 PM

    Now that’s progress.

  21. crawfish2011 says: Aug 17, 2011 5:34 PM

    I’d hit

  22. beastofeden says: Aug 17, 2011 5:48 PM

    Is this the young lady taking Perrish Cox to court?

  23. readysethike says: Aug 17, 2011 5:51 PM

    Affirmative Action Works!! just kidding just kidding

  24. tdk24 says: Aug 17, 2011 5:53 PM

    Is she replacing Hoge?

  25. schmitty2 says: Aug 17, 2011 6:26 PM

    Her first report will be at Soldier Field wearing hiking boots while interviewing Jerry Angelo. First question “What the hell is going on in your mind?”

  26. deepseabreeze says: Aug 17, 2011 6:41 PM

    I’m surprised she couldn’t “break” Tim Tebow while in Denver lol

  27. shawon0meter says: Aug 17, 2011 6:59 PM

    lowercase d

  28. pftrumors says: Aug 17, 2011 9:28 PM

    Josina and Sage Steele. My sweet golly that would be a hot broadcast.

  29. bearsrulepackdrool says: Aug 17, 2011 9:49 PM

    Good Lawd!

    I wonder if she gotta donk?

  30. darthhitman says: Aug 17, 2011 10:08 PM

    Now if PFT could just hire someone with strong reporting chops instead of having to twist every story and throw in their own subtle jabs…what ever happened to the free press? I KNOW, it was all bought up by the same 3 people…freaking scum

  31. kevinfromphilly says: Aug 18, 2011 9:37 AM

    One word of advice to her: if Rachel Nichols gives you an apple, dont’t eat it! It will cast a spell on you, making you sleep until you get a kiss from a handsom prince.

  32. joetoronto says: Aug 18, 2011 12:52 PM

    If she was a woman and black, would she have a job?

    Just asking.
