“We sat down, and I think within ten minutes—and he won’t mind me saying this, because he’s pretty open—(Colin) got very teary eyed.” – Kristine Leahy

Kristine Leahy says she is no spring chicken when it comes to sports media. But at just 29 years old, she has already worked in major media markets in every part of the country, and built a very successful track record.

Her latest venture as Colin Cowherd’s intelligent and confident sidekick, has made her a household name on the national scene, and pushed her deeper into the sports radio consciousness than ever before.

And with that comes some really interesting stories. Some of which she shares with us in this episode of the Podcast About Sports Radio.
