Kristine Leahy Biography
Kristine Leahy is an American television host and sports reporter. She was born on October 16, 1986 in Chicago. She is well known for hosting on NBC’s American Ninja Warrior and The Herd with Colin Cowherd.
She grew up in Chicago during the height of Michael Jordan’s basketball reign, and at some point along the road to those six NBA titles, Leahy got hooked. Not just on the Bulls, but on sports and competition. At an early age, she was certain that she wanted to spend her life amidst the greatest competitors in the world, and once it became clear that the family’s athletic genes had skipped her and bounced straight to her two younger brothers, Leahy pursued a career in sports broadcasting.
She attended Prairie Ridge High School in Crystal Lake, Illinois. After high school, she moved east, and earned a Bachelor of Science in Journalism degree from Boston University, where she was part of the team that created BUTV’s first sports talk show, and co-anchored that show for three years. From there, she worked as a reporter and host for New England Sports Radio Station WEEI, before moving on to the 17-Time World Champion Boston Celtics, where she spent two years as a host and in-house team reporter at the TD Garden and for Celtics.com. After the Celtics, Leahy spent one year as the lead sports anchor for Fox Boston, where she covered both a Stanley Cup and a Super Bowl.
In 2012, Leahy moved on to Los Angeles and spent two and a half years working across various platforms in the CBS and Turner Sports Family. She worked the college basketball sidelines for March Madness. She was also a sideline reporter for CBS Sports Network’s college football and basketball packages. She filled in as a host on CBS Sports Network’s show “Lead Off”, contributed to KCAL’s Dodgers pre-game show “Think Blue”, anchored CBSLA’s “Sports Central” and covered the playoffs for all four major sports. Along the way, she developed a passion for bringing out the human side of athletes through one-on-one interviews and features. She even made a bit of history, becoming the first woman to ever call a horse race in California.
Today, Leahy still lives in Los Angeles, but now you can catch her nationally as a co-host on NBC’s network’s hit prime time show “American Ninja Warrior”, surrounded by some of the best athletes and most hard-nosed competitors in the world.
