Who is Dianna Russini?
Dianna Russini was born on the 11th February 1983 in The Bronx, New York City USA, and is a sports journalist, best known to the world for her work for ESPN, having joined the media company in 2015. Since then, she has served as SportsCenter anchor and host of NFL Live, among other differing positions.
Early Life and Education
From an early age, Dianna was interested in journalism and sport, never fully deciding between her two passions. She went to Old Tappan High School located in New Jersey, and it was during these years that she started seriously pursuing sports, including basketball, soccer, softball, and track as well, being best in track and worst in soccer, but was also a forward for the basketball team. Upon matriculation, she enrolled at George Mason University from which she obtained a degree in journalism. Despite not being particularly fond of soccer, she spent all four years at university on the women’s team. During her university years, she interned with a couple of networks, including as a Student Sideline Reporter for Comcast from 2003 until her graduation year in 2005.
Once out of the University, Dianna started looking for a place for herself in the corporate world, looking to co-join her two passions, sports and journalism, deciding to become a full-time journalist once she saw Robin Meade on CNN reporting on the 9/11 attacks. So Dianna joined News 12 Westchester, working for the station from 2005 to 2007, and then gradually moved on to bigger networks, such as WNBC New York, Comcast Sports in Seattle, NBC 30 in West Hartford, Connecticut, and NBC in Washington D.C.
Rise to Prominence
Dianna’s hard work started to pay off and she was noticed by Rob King, the Senior Vice President of SportsCenter & News at ESPN, who immediately offered her work at the network. The offer was too good to refuse, and in July 2015, Dianna officially joined one of the largest sports and entertainment networks. She was named as one of the SportsCenter anchors and reporters, a position she still holds, and has since also started working on other sports shows on ESPN, including “Sunday NFL Countdown”, and “Get Up!”, among others. Her success on ESPN has made her a star sports journalist, and popular all over the world, not only in the US.
