Is ESPN Dianna Russini Married? How Old Is She And What Is Her Height?

Sports journalism has always been a difficult area for women and any woman who is able to scale through the rough path of becoming a success in that field deserves a pat on the back. Despite various engineered ways to keep women out of the field that has historically been male-dominated, the likes of Dianna Russini have succeeded in making a way for themselves.

The American sports journalist has since 2003 been making big breaks in the broadcasting industry. Her major break, however, could be traced to her time with the U.S.-based sports television channel, ESPN, as its SportsCenter Anchor, covering mainly for the National Football League (NFL). She is not only popular among football lovers but her good looks plus a body that perfectly fits into any smart dress makes her a centre for attraction. Russini is a gorgeous, beautiful, and highly talented TV host. She is in fact, one of ESPN’s best anchors so far. Let’s take a look at some facts about her lifestyle, career and personal life.

Who Is Dianna Russini Of ESPN and When Was She Born? 

Dianna Russini is a popular American sports journalist best known as ESPN’s reporter, host and sports analyst on NFL Countdown and NFL Live. On the global cable and satellite sports television channel, Dianna reports on sports news shows ‘Sunday NFL Countdown’ and ‘SportsCenter’. She joined the TV channel in September 2015 as a SportsCenter host. Russini is often known for giving expert analysis about several games, mostly in the NFL. Since she joined the broadcasting firm, she has been able to groom herself into one of the best and well-established star anchors.

Prior to gaining a spot at the ESPN, Dianna has worked for some other Television networks like the NBC Connecticut where she was the news and sports journalist. While she was with NBC, she was known for covering the shooting scene of the Boston Marathon bombing. Russini also worked for ABC News which she joined after her time with NBC Connecticut. She was also WRC Channel4’s columnist. Her presence was also felt in WNBC New York, and News 12 where she worked as a sports analyst.

Dianna Marie Russini is a New York City native. She was born in the Bronx on February 11, 1983, and she grew up there. Curious about everything, Dianna Russini developed an interest in journalism as a young student at Old Tappan High School in New Jersey. However, due to her strong love for sports like basketball, softball, track and soccer, which she was actively involved in, her ambition to become a journalist suffered a little setback until the unforgettable 9/11 attacks in 2001 which, according to her, helped her to make up her mind to become a full-time journalist.

Dianna usually plays baseball with her father and her older brother and while at school, she was an All-State athlete in four different sports. She also attended George Mason University where she was known as a 3-year starter and lockdown defender for the varsity’s basketball team. After graduating, Dianna Russini went further to obtain a degree in Arts and Journalism and while studying, she was also practising her journalism career as an understudy sideline columnist. A couple of years after graduation, Russini worked for News 12 Westchester as its reporter. She also worked for WNBC and Comcast Sports before joining the NBC.

Does She Have A Husband?

One area of Russini’s life that seems to interest her fan a lot is her personal life, especially as she was wrongfully accused of being Washington Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan’s side chick. Stories about her went viral on various social media platforms as McCloughan’s wife, Jessica, made a post claiming that the beautiful sports analyst wants to break her home. Jessica, however, later apologized to her, saying her actions were unsuitable.

So far, there is no news about Dianna Russini being married, hence, she has no husband. There are, however, rumours that the wonderfully built New York City native is in a relationship with a baseball player David Wright. The two were only seen together in 2008 but it seems that their relationship only lasted for that year. There have also been rumours about her being secretly engaged to Manhattan Hedge Fund manager. Dianna has so far not made any statement to confirm the rumours. Currently, on various social media platforms, she maintains that she is still single.
