SI Media Podcast: Fox Sports host and reporter Charissa Thompson

Friday July 10th, 2015

Welcome to the tenth episode of the SI Media Podcast with Richard Deitsch. In this podcast, which will be published weekly, Deitsch will interview members of the sports media about their work, and interesting people about the sports media.

This week the guest is Fox Sports host and reporter Charissa Thompson (Thompson also is a co-host for the syndicated entertainment news show Extra.). In the podcast Thompson discusses the cultural differences between working for ESPN and Fox Sports, how she prepares for her jobs, the social media vitriol she experienced while she was dating ESPN’s Jay Williams, the success of Katie Nolan, why she felt compelled to find détente with ESPN’s Michelle Beadle, and Thompson’s decision to be open with her Instagram account.

Be sure to check back each week in Deitsch's media column for the latest episode. A reminder: you can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, and you can view all of SI's podcasts here.
