Though sports journalism is dominated by men, many women have made a name for themselves in the industry in recent years with their knowledgeable sideline reporting, spot-on commentary and exemplary interviewing and hosting skills. And though we all want reporters who know about the game, let’s be honest… it doesn’t hurt if some of them are pretty hot too.
From the sidelines to the locker room and from the court to the pitch, here are some of my favorite female sports reporters who know how to handle the mic and look good doing it. Who are the top five sexiest sports reporters in the world? These are my picks…
Though there are dozens of incredibly hot women working as sports reporters, my top spot goes to Ines Sainz. The sexy journalist for CNN en Espanol and Mexico’s Azteca Deportes has been admired on the sidelines for years. She’s gotten interviews with top athletes from Kobe Bryant to Roger Federer and Derek Jeter to Lionel Messi. Let’s be honest, who would turn down the opportunity to be interviewed by her!
You might remember back in 2010, New York Jets players and coaches allegedly threw footballs in her direction on the sidelines, and then afterwards she was reportedly the target of lewd comments in the locker room that made her uncomfortable. She was issued a personal apology from Woody Johnson, then Jets owner, but did not file any lawsuit regarding the incident.
For fans, Sainz has been a welcome distraction on the sidelines at top events from the Super Bowl to the NBA Finals. Click through the gallery below to check out some of the hottest photos of Ines Sainz.

Ines Sainz isn’t the only hot girl in the biz, here are a few more of the female sports reporters, I love. Who’s your favorite?
From the cover of Maxim to MTV2′s “Guy Code” and from the movie Grown Ups 2 to the sidelines for Fox Sports, April Rose is one of the hottest chicks, not just in sports, but in the entertainment industry altogether. She’s also host and writer for Maxim’s weekly web series Maximum Exposure.
When it comes to sports, Ashley Russell has proven that she knows her stuff. She’s versatile, savvy, and incredibly hot to boot. Ashley’s accomplishments go beyond her work as a sports reporter for Yahoo! and Rivals.com, she also served as president of a model and talent agency in Nashville.
She might not be 20-something anymore, but Leeann Tweeden is still one of the sexiest sports reporters in the business. The Virginia native started out is a Hooters girl, went into modeling and eventually graced the pages of magazines like Playboy and FHM (where she was the cover girl in March 2007). For seven years, we watched her on FSN’s Best Damn Sports Show Period, and she’s currently working Fox Sports 1′s UPC Tonight.
Rebecca is a gorgeous, multi-talented actress, model, on-air host, entrepreneur and more. She got her start as a host and correspondent for The Buffalo Bills NFL Show, and went on to be a feature reporter for ESPN, a journalist for FOX Sports World and co-host of NFL Under the Helmet. She’s appeared in numerous commercials, print ad campaigns, TV shows and movies. However, Rebecca Grant is more than a pretty face — she also designed her own fashion line and is an advocate for breast cancer research.
And we all really appreciated Rebecca Grant’s boob grab at the Clippers game:
Another recent candidate is Jung Yewon, a sports reporter from South Korea. She was filmed at the 2014 World Cup looking extremely cute.
