An Indiana University alum, 35-year-old Sage Steele worked for years at CSN Mid-Atlantic covering the Baltimore Ravens before moving over to ESPN, where she is an update anchor for both Mike and Mike in the Morning and ESPN First Take, both of which air on ESPN 2.

Name: Kathryn Tappen
Network: New England Sports Network

Alongside Hazle Mae at NESN is cutie Kathryn Tappen, who co-anchors SportsDesk. But hosting isn’t all she does for sports. Tappen was also an Academic All-American runner for Rutgers University, setting the record for the women’s 3,000-meter steeplechase.

Name: Jody Vance
Network: Leafs TV

Beginning her broadcast career at CHRX, Canada’s first Classic Rock radio station, Jody Vance is currently the lead anchor at Leafs TV, which is owned by the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey team. So not only is she hot, but she could probably beat your ass.

Network: FSN Wisconsin

Before joining up with FSN Wisconsin to cover the Brewers, Trenni Kusnierek worked as an anchor and reporter for WDJT-TV in Milwaukee, FSN Pittsburgh, Big Ten and NFL Network. So even if her name sounds insane, her sportscasting is anything but.

One of the original hotties of sports reporting, Canada native Jillian Barberie-Reynolds started as an actress, with roles in Clueless, V.I.P. and Melrose Place before moving on to Fox NFL Sunday for their weather segment.

Name: Mieke Buchan

More a reporting powerhouse than a mere sportscaster, Australian Mieke Buchan has covered everything from the Super Bowl to the Olympic Games.

Name: Ashley Russell

Sweet Jesus! This woman is like God’s gift to sideline reporting. Formerly with Rivals.com, Ashley Russell recently moved to Big Ten Network to cover that conference as a sideline reporter. So for those of you who go to Rivals to get your Ashley fix, unlucky!

Name: Lindsay Czarniak
Network: NBC4

Starting as a reporter and sportscaster, Lindsay quickly moved on to become co-host of The George Michael Sports Machine and covered both the 2006 Winter Olympics and the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing. She is also the host of a 30-minute show on Oxygen called Gymnastics on Oxygen which, we’re guessing, is kind of lame. Unless of course you like fit chicks in spandex–then it might be your thing…

Name: Shana Hiatt
Network: NBC

Ok, ok, so poker isn’t exactly a sport. But it can make you sweat, takes skill and has one of the hottest reporters on television covering events, so sue us. Though she’s currently taking time off due to pregnancy, Shana started as the host of the World Poker Tour before moving over to NBC to host Poker After Dark and National Heads-Up Poker Championship. If someone can go babysit her kid so she can get back on air, we’d really appreciate it. Thanks.

Name: Ines Sainz
Network:  TV Azteca

This Mexican beauty has, quite possibly, the best butts we’ve every laid eyes on. But besides all that, she’s a sports reporter for TV Azteca. And I don’t know if you’ve ever watched Mexican television, but that has to be some of the most bootylicious programming this side of Adult On Demand.

Name: Heidi Watney

Starting her career as a weekend sports reporter for KMPH in Fresno, California, 27-year-old Heidi Watney is the on-field reporter for NESN’s coverage of the Boston Red Sox and recently took over for co-hottie Hazel
Mae as host for The Ultimate Red Sox Show. Before getting into broadcasting, she competed in the Miss California pageant where she was first and second runner-up in ’02 and ’03. We think she should have won…duh.

Name: Jenn Sterger
Network: New York Jets

A FSU Cowgirl, Jenn Sterger rose to fame when she was shown on-camera at a 2005 Florida State-Miami game and announcer Brent Musburger commented that “15,000 young red-blooded Americans just signed up to go to Florida State next semester,” because of her supreme hotness. From that, she was hired by the New York Jets as the “gameday host” for the team. Additionally, she’s a former online columnist for Sports Illustrated and has posed in both Maxim and Playboy magazines.

Network: ESPN

Beginning her career as a freelance sportscaster at FSN Florida, 30-year-old Andrews is one of the hottest reporters anywhere, ever. She’s the sideline reporter for ESPN College Football Saturday and Big Ten college basketball, and MLB, and…screw it–she covers pretty much everything. Not that we’re complaining…


Name: Lisa Dergan
Network: FOX

Now settle down, Erin Andrews fans. Lisa Dergan is as hot as sportscasters get. There are none hotter, or more willing to take it all off for her fans. Getting a break in 2001, Lisa was hired for a weekend sports show on L.A.’s KCBS. She then joined FOX Sports in 2002, gaining notable interviews with everyone from Tiger Woods to John Elway.

  1. Molly Sullivan is such a talent! Hot, smart, former athlete, very witty, and an all around nice genuine person. I always have a front row seat when she is the live sideline reporter. In fact September 20, here we come!

  2. there is no reason why ines sainz shouldnt be #1… she defines sexy… her body is out of this world and that ass is heavenly… she's definitely sexier than erin andrews… did i mention ines' ass is a thing of beauty?..

  3. Brandi Seymour (Golf Channel) and Stephanie Ready (TNT)- where for out thou? Clearly Sage Steele was the wrong person to choose for a "token". I'd have even settled for Pam Oliver, especially if you're talking about backsides…

  4. This is a response to Scott who said to look up Angela Jacobs, SERIOUSLY?? Whoa man, you have got issues, seriously I you sure you don't like guys?

  5. Wendy Nix doing the College Football show has stepped her game up big time. She lost some weight, got a tan, has long styled hair…A lot better looking than before.

  6. How the hell did Hannah Storm get in there? Shouldn't there be a bouncer who lets certain people in this contest?

    Trenni Kusnierek is probably the smartest sportscaster in this group, and she's a helluva lot more knowledgable than the sausage fest she has to compete against. . plus she's not bad to look at either.

  7. This is the dumbest list I ever read. Although I'm happy that Jody Vance is in the list, she doesn't hold a bat next to Jennifer Hedger. Google her name and tell me otherwise

  8. This list is completely irrelevant based on stunning lack of European female sportscasters. Why not do a bit of research and put some incredible women on there instead of a bunch of mediocre Americans women?

  9. C'mon…Rachel Nichols should be on the list. She's got nice lips thin waist and hips. PLUS, she's a unique redhead! Bonnie Bernstein should be up there as well. As far as body, though, the elder stateswoman of ESPN has got to get a nod. Now she may nice have the nicest face but as far as body? Man her ass is one of the best. Linda Cohn!

  10. You guys need to watch Sportsnet more often. Martine Gaillard, Evanka Osmak and Daru Dhillon are the hottest trio on TV!! Not to mention, it's the network that made Jody Vance and Hazel Mae famous. At least the Rogers' hiring policies have a high standard.

  11. How could anyone place Jillian Barbarie on any list that includes hot women. She's pure unadulterated, unattractive, skank. Jill Arrington is tons better and didn't even make the list.

  12. I can't believe suzy kolber isn't anywhere to be seen, i mean I wouldn't put her above ines sainz but at least 25.

  13. where are bonnie bernstein, holly horton and martine from sportsnet. at least jennifer hedger did not make.

  14. Rachel Nichols couldn't even make the back end of the list? She's one of those women who tries too hard to look professional, she could skank it up nice if she wanted to. And what about Melissa Stark? She was the original MNF sideline hottie.

  15. Predictable, everyone is told Andrews is hot and they believe it. Adriana Monsalve is the hottest of this group.

  16. Check out Nicole Manske; she will make your top 25 for sure. I believe she is currently a reporter for nascar now.

  17. Missing from this list: Katrina Hancock from WDIV Detroit (NBC affiliate). She's a pretty good sports reporter, attractive, and 6'3" (I like 'em tall).

  18. I agree some may be hotter than Erin Andrews looks wise, but she actually knows about every sport she covers which takes her over the top in my book. If she makes a mean meatball sandwich, she may be the greatest woman ever created.

  19. Someone sure has a fixation on bleached blondes w/ fake ones, huh? Those are not the 25 sexiest in the Americas. I'm pretty sure 10~15 would come from Latin America alone.

  20. Trenni K. isn't even the best looking sportscaster in WI. That honor goes to Jen Lada. As for these chicks there's about 8 I could take or leave.

  21. Molly Sullivan is a catch – on, and off, the field. That girl knows her stuff. It's been fun to watch her grow as a sideline reporter. She actually went to high school with ESPN's Jamie Little, but Jamie is four years older than Molly. Big fan of Charissa Thompson, too. Great list!
