'CBS Sports' Jamie Erdahl & Husband Married Life, An Eventual Fail?
Traveling alongside the players and paying attention to every detail of the game to report on, sports reporters get a lot less credit than they deserve. One such reporter, who has gradually grown in fame and stature and caught everyone’s eye is Jamie Erdahl.
American reporter for CBS Sports, Jamie fulfills her responsibilities as the lead sideline reporter for the SEC on CBS. In her short association with CBS Sports, Jamie has quickly grown in size and stature to become CBS’ most valuable prodigy.
Alongside her blossoming professional career, Jamie is also progressing leaps and bounds in her personal life as well. With a loving husband by her side, the star reporter looks happy with what life has to offer for now.
However, will fate take its turns or will it be happily ever after for the duo?
Blossoming Career At CBS Sports
Born and raised in Bloomington, Minnesota to her parents, Jamie has always been a determined girl with huge ambitions in mind. After completing her education with a B.A degree from American University in 2011, Jamie joined NESN as a television reporter in 2012.
However, she soon landed her dream job in CBS on September 2014 as a sports reporter and has been associated with the channel ever since.
In her four year career at CBS Sports, Jamie has soon escalated her career and has reached new career heights. Initially a studio host, Jamie replaced Allie Laforce as the lead sideline reporter for SEC on CBS in June 2018.
Following Jamie’s appointment on SEC on CBS, the executive producer for CBS Sports, Harold Bryant mentioned his delight over Jamie’s inclusion.
“We are excited to add Jamie to our SEC on CBS coverage. Since joining CBS, Jamie has established herself as a talented, versatile and knowledgeable reporter.”
This career jump has thus seen Jamie earn a salary figure of around $50k per annum at the age of 29. Soon approaching the peak of her career, Jamie, therefore, looks set for some colossal salary figures in her career.
