At the end of 2020, FOX NFL reporter Charissa Thompson and sports agent Kyle Thousand got married in a small ceremony with family.

Roughly one year later, the marriage ended.

According to a report, Thompson filed for divorce roughly one year after her marriage to the prominent sports agent.

The reason: "irreconcilable differences."

The Blast first reported the news:

According to legal documents, obtained by The Blast, the Fox’s NFL Kickoff host filed for divorce from her husband — Kyle Thousand. The dissolution of marriage was filed on Tuesday, April 19, 2022, and cites “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split.

Thousand is a sports agent, who appears to work with several high profile athletes.

Thompson, who covers the NFL for FOX, hosts a podcast with Erin Andrews and owns her own design company, had previously spoken about her marriage.

“I’m going to keep my last name. I guess I should change my last name when we have kids but that feels like a whole to-do… He’s not ugly. I’d like to give my kids a good gene pool, so we’re going to make sure they get a fighting chance, at least with his brains and looks,” Thompson said last February.

Thompson added, “When you get married twice, the second one is always better than the first one.”

The former FOX NFL host was also previously in a relationship with Jay Williams.
