With nearly 15 years in broadcasting, Bonnie Bernstein is one of the most recognizable and highly respected journalists in her field. In July, 2006, she signed on with ABC/ESPN to cover ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball with Hall of Famers Jon Miller and Joe Morgan and college football on ABC with Brad Nessler, Bob Griese and Paul McGuire. She is also a rotating host and feature reporter for several ESPN programs, giving her a broad range of responsibilities at “The Worldwide Leader in Sports.” Additionally, Bernstein covers the NFL for CBS/Westwood One Radio.
Bernstein’s second run with ESPN comes after eight years at CBS Sports, where she was the lead reporter for the NFL and the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championships. She contributed features for The NFL Today; hosted the Network’s Emmy-nominated anthology series, Championships of the NCAA, and the NCAA Women’s Gymnastics Championships; and anchored SportsDesk and At the Half, CBS’ New York-based studio shows. Track and field, figure skating, and the U.S. Open Tennis Championships rounded out Bernstein’s assignments at the Network.
During the NFL season, Bernstein often pulled “double duty,” covering a Sunday game for CBS and Monday Night Football for CBS/Westwood Radio. In 2004, during Super Bowl XXXVIII, she became the first reporter to serve as both a network TV and network radio correspondent on the same broadcast. Bernstein has covered five straight Super Bowls since joining the radio announce team in 2001 and the Pro Bowl since 2003.
