In doing a Google Image Search for FSN/Big Ten Network reporter Charissa Thompson, I find another Charissa Thompson (warning, some images NSFW).
Now, Charissa Thompson of FSN/BTN is doing a bang up job on the sidelines on the Big Ten Network. She’s on the “A” announcing team with Thom Brennaman and Charles Davis and was there when Appalachian State upset Michigan earlier this year. She also co-hosted FSN’s Baseball Report. Now if you haven’t seen Charissa (and probably many of you haven’t because of BTN’s dispute with practically every cable company), here’s her picture courtesy of Tom Hoffarth from the LA Daily News’ Farther Off the Wall blog:
And from Hoffarth’s media notes blog entry, he notes:
Thompson, best known in the FSN world as a Rocky Mountain regional reporter, can’t be found, by the way, with a simple Google search. There’s a model/porn star with the same name who isn’t wearing TV sports-reporter attire, unless Lisa Guerrero has changed her name.
“A lot of people have pointed that out to me, even my father,” Thompson told a Rocky Mountain News reporter recently. “If I could change my name, I would.”
When I do a Google Image Search, I don’t find the picture that I posted above, but something like this (may not be Safe for Work):
And Charissa Thompson is not only attractive (far more than Erin Andrews), she can do just as good of a job as Erin Andrews. She’s stuck on the FSN Baseball Report (which is a terrible show) and doing sideline coverage for the Big 10 Network which works with FSN. I guarantee you if Thompson gets a bigger gig (like on ESPN or something), she’ll probably overtake Erin Andrews as Queen of the College Football Sideline Reporting.
I do agree that Charissa is a star in the making, but it’ll be tough to overtake Erin at this point. Anyway, this is my excuse to post pictures on this lazy Saturday afternoon.
