Athens, GA (Nov 27, 2007) - Probably one of the nicest people I have met over the years is CBS Sports Sideline Reporter Tracy Wolfson. Unlike a lot of sideline reporters, she started out in the trenches of network sports and worked her way up. I just don't know if she should get a pass for having gone to the University of Michigan (Go Bucks!). Here is her profile as posted by CBS Sports.

Tracy Wolfson has served as lead reporter for the Network's coverage of college football since 2004. She also has served as a reporter for CBS Sports' coverage of the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship for the last four years. Throughout the year, Wolfson also covers Auto Racing, Skiing, Ice Skating, Gymnastics, Track and Field and Rodeo for the Network. In 2004, she hosted "The NCAA Tournament Show presented by Spike TV." She served as a reporter for the network's late night and weekend broadcasts of the 2004 and 2005 U.S. Open Tennis Championships.

Prior to CBS, Wolfson served as an anchor for the Madison Square Garden Network on Sports Desk and Talk of our Town, and was a reporter for College Hoops, Angles, Metro Soccer Report and Tee to Green. She also worked for ESPN as Host/Reporter covering U.S. Open Golf, college football and Arena Football (2002-03). Wolfson began her on-air broadcasting career in 2000 at WZBN-TV in Trenton, N.J. as a sports anchor, reporter and producer. She also has worked for Oxygen Sports, Long Island News Tonight and News-12 Long Island. Wolfson began her professional career at CBS Sports in 1997 as a Researcher, working on U.S. Open Tennis, the 1998 Winter Olympics and the 1997 NCAA Final Four. Wolfson graduated with a degree in communications from the University of Michigan. She lives in New York City with her husband and son.

    All that is nice except the fact that she found it funny that Ricky Jean-Francois was injured before the LSU vs. Florida game. It is small comments from uneducated commentators like that from Ms. Wolfson which is the reason I watch all CBS sports muted.
