Kristen Ledlow, at least to some extent, has become a name to reckon with in the media sphere. She has been in the business of news and current affairs, for about a decade and currently co-hosts NBA TV’s NBA Inside Stuff program with former NBA star Grant Hill. She also reports live NBA matches on NBA On TNT powered by WarnerMedia’s Turner Sports.
Kristen is one of those lucky fellows whose career life dovetail into their romantic yearnings. Most part of her dating history known to us reveals that she is probably more attracted to NBA stars. Or, is it possible they are the ones who are attracted to her instead? We can confirm that asides reporting about NBA stars, Kristen has ended up marrying one of them in the person of Kyle Anderson.
Who Exactly Is Kristen Ledlow?
She was born in Tallahassee, Florida, on January 18, 1988. Thereafter, Kristen was raised by her American parents whose names are Rita and Roger Ledlow. She grew up in her hometown along with her sister Lauren Ledlow. Kristen is of white ethnicity.
The sports anchor received a deep Christian upbringing. Her journey in the conventional school system can be traced to Community Christian School in Port Charlotte, FL. Then, she moved on to North Florida Christian School (NFCS) in Tallahassee, Florida, run by Florida Baptist Church.
It is possible that Ledlow may have once considered being a professional athlete before she finally opted to report on athletes instead. This is because, from her days at NFCS, she regularly played on the school’s women’s volleyball and basketball teams.
Kristen Ledlow’s active interest in sports continued to wax stronger even as she proceeded for her college education at Assemblies of God’s Southeastern University in Lakeland, Florida. As one would expect, she was a part of the school’s volleyball team. Kristen also started polishing her skills here as she served as the lead announcer for the men’s basketball games. That was obviously because, besides her rather active interest in sports, she was also pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree in Broadcasting and Communications.
When it is said that a girl was very active in sports while she was in school, she might cut a figure in some people’s mind of the typical tomboy wielding biceps and an angular figure. But was that the case with Kyle Anderson’s wife? Not at all. Instead, the comely appearance that you know her with now has always been with her. Indeed, her beauty so distinguished her that she was also involved in beauty pageants while in school, winning the regional Miss Capital City USA crown once while placing third in the state pageant.
Her Media Exploits That Speak Volumes About Her
Kristen Ledlow acquired enough experience while in college to make her the sports journalism trailblazer that she turned out to become. This is because her college training in Broadcasting and Communications seemed to blend so perfectly with her sporting hobbies.
So, immediately after her graduation in 2010, Ledlow began working with the Tallahassee ABC-affiliated television station WTXL-TV as the host of the station’s Good News Show. At the same time, she equally worked as a writer for the Tallahassee Quarterback Club and served as a radio presenter for ESPN Tallahassee as she later went ahead to become the sideline broadcaster for Florida State Seminoles football games. She was later offered a job at CBS Sports Radio as a co-broadcaster of a program named The Opening Drive.
In 2013, Kristen Ledlow began her work with the Entercom radio station – WZGC FM in Midtown Atlanta. There, she served as the radio presenter where she worked alongside Jason Bailey and Randy Cross. That job came to an end in 2014. There are indications that she had some issues at the station. However, it ended up being a case of a blessing in disguise as it cleared her way for the job position that would permanently launch her into the world of prominent media celebs.
After the 15-season-long original series of NBA Inside Stuff on NBC and ABC between 1990 and 2004, NBA TV launched the revival of the show that focuses on the behind-the-scenes of NBA games in 2013 – a year before Kristen would be losing her WZGC FM job. So, as if the revival series of NBA Inside Stuff was launched for her, in a few months after the end of the WZGC FM job, she was hired by NBA TV as a co-anchor with Grant Hill for NBA Inside Stuff.
Coincidentally, in 2014 – a year before she landed the NBA Inside Stuff job – Kristen Ledlow appeared in an episode of the annual basketball game exhibition – NBA All-Star Weekend Celebrity Game. She represented the East team in the game exhibition and was able to score two times in the first session of the game in 2014. There can hardly be any doubt that the exposure she got from this experience further recommended her for the celeb-level job with NBA TV.
Now, Kristen Ledlow has even added another prestigious feather to her career cap through her new contract with WarnerMedia’s Turner Sports to report live NBA games on NBA on TNT.
How Did The Relationship Between Kristen Ledlow and Kyle Anderson Develop?
Kristen Ledlow is married to the US-based professional basketball player Kyle Anderson, who plays for the Memphis Grizzlies as a small forward. He has also worked with teams like San Antonio Spurs and Austin Spurs in the past.
The couple actually dated for a while and after their engagement, Kristen Ledlow shared a picture of their rings on her Instagram page.
The lovebirds tied the knot in the presence of their families and friends at a wedding ceremony held in December 2018. Even though Ledlow is a few years older than her husband, it did not stop the love and intentions they have for each other. There has not been any news about them separating as the couple seems to be happy in their marriage.
Perhaps, the secret of their wonderful romance lies in how they met each other. We learned that Kyle began to admire Kristen from afar from the day she made news headlines across the country when she appeared in an episode of the annual basketball game exhibition-NBA All-Star Weekend Celebrity Game, scoring two times in the first part of the game in 2014.
Not only did Kyle see an extraordinary woman in Kristen, he saw her as someone he could share his basketball interest with. But, no one can totally discountenance the fact that Kristen Ledlow’s exquisite beauty was one of the things that drew Kyle’s eyes. However, we are yet to get the exact details of the very first time that they met each other eventually.
Talking about Kristen Ledlow’s appearance, the stunning blonde ex-beauty queen stands at the height of 5 feet 8 inches which blends perfectly with a weight of about 59 kg. She has a pair of intense blue eyes that make her seem to have an aura of authority about her.
