Bonnie Bernstein

One of the most accomplished female sportscasters in history, Bonnie Bernstein combines her role as on-air journalist with her work behind the scenes as vice president of Campus Insiders, a leading media platform for college sports. Bernstein was a four-time All-American in gymnastics at the University of Maryland, and after graduation immediately went into sports journalism as the news and sports director for WXJN radio in Delaware. After slowly moving up the ladder in TV news, including a stint as Reno, Nevada’s first female weekday sports anchor, Bernstein became ESPN’s Chicago bureau chief in 1995, covering Michael Jordan’s record-breaking success with the Chicago Bulls. She became lead sideline reporter for CBS Sports in 1998 and signed with Westwood One Radio in 2001, regularly pulling double duty and becoming the first correspondent ever to cover the Super Bowl for both network television and network radio in 2004. In 2006 she returned to ESPN, and in 2009 was named co-host and SportsCenter anchor for the Michael Kay Show on ESPN radio. As of 2013 she is both an anchor and vice president of content and brand development for Campus Insiders and national spokesperson for the Coalition to Prevent Deep Vein Thrombosis.
