Sage Steele

It’s a six-hour day, tops. So that sounds easy—but it is such a high-pressure, stressful six hours—that I’m dead when I get off the air. But then I have to go home and I have three young children, so it’s like, ‘Get over yourself, enjoy your relaxing drive home, and go back into job number two.’

Sage Steele is a co-host of ESPN’s SportsCenter.

Steele graduated from Indiana University Bloomington in 1995 with a bachelor’s degree in sports communications and began her television career at WSBT-TV in South Bend, Indiana, as a producer and reporter, and was the beat reporter for the Indianapolis Colts.

In Tampa, she was a reporter, anchor, and host for WFTS-TV, and she covered the NCAA Men’s Final Four and Super Bowl XXXV.

Steele was the anchor for the debut of Comcast SportsNet, serving the Washington DC/Baltimore region, anchored the flagship show SportsNite for six years, and was a beat reporter for the Baltimore Ravens, hosting a magazine show for five seasons.
