BDSSP Correspondant To Join Be An NFL on FOX Sideline Reporter Next Season

Monday, May 19, 2008

Charissa Thompson is one of the huge winners in the Best Damn Sports Show Period shakeup, and she'll be on the sidelines along with Chris Meyers and Pam Oliver. Thompson spent last year on as a sideliner for the Big Ten Network's number one team with Thom Brennan and Charles Davis and most recently is the lone reporter for BDSSP. From USA Today....

Correspondent Charissa Thompson has been the winner from the latest on-air talent shake-up at Fox Sports Net's Best Damn Sports Show Period. The show's decision not to renew the contracts of former co-hosts Rob Dibble and Rodney Peete has given more air time to Thompson who now sits front and center with remaining co-hosts John Salley and Chris Rose on the set of the late-night show ( 11 p.m. ET, Monday-Friday). She'll also join Pam Oliver and Chris Myers as sideline reporter for the NFL on Fox this season. "Charissa can play to many fields. She's been a reporter and really knows sports," says BDSSP producer John Entz. "She's smart and quick."
Thompson is definitely smart and quick (also very attractive which doesn't hurt) and hopefully she'll add some energy to a FOX team of sideline reporters that can be seen as rather boring at times. Also mentioned in the article is the fact that FOX is going to be doing a BDSSP episode around legendary Sportscasters in the coming weeks. I'll pass on the particulars once I get more information.

As far as the BDSSP, the once rumored to be axed show is much improved and it's new direction actually makes it rather tolerable and occasionally enjoyable. If they are keeping the show than this is definitely a step in the right direction.

How does John Salley survive the axe??? He knows nothing, even basketball.

Chris Meyers is worthless, but Pam Oliver tries to do her best with a role that's rarely clearly defined. Now, if they just get rid of that doofus ("There's a lotta heavy hittin' goin' on down here near the end zone!") Siragussa...

That's twice Dibble hasn't had his contract renewed. Hmmm...I'm sensing a pattern here.

If you happened to listen to Dibble while he was on Patrick's radio show on ESPN, his clever retort to anyone questioning his exalted opinions were always the same - "You never played the game. I did." Thanks a lot for that riveting repartee, douchebag.

@dmac- oh, I know; I was just being sarcastic. And yes, he is a douchebag.

Good for Charissa. She actually does know sports and she is also very attractive. This is a win-win for her and viewers

I think the biggest problem with BDSSP period is the stupid name. How creative! That's like a car lot calling themselves "The Nobody's"

So some yahoo gets home at 10:55 and says: "hmmm, I wanna watch the best damn sports show on tv right now! Oh my goodness!! - there's actually a show on called that! Unbelievable!! I'm watching that!!"

Was that the thinking behind the name?

Does anybody else like/dislike the name?

Watching her, he felt a surge of love and wonder: that she was his wife, that their baby, due in just three weeks, would soon be born.
