In Photos: Everything You Need To Know About Kristine Leahy, Colin Cowherd's New Sidekick

Former ESPN radio host Colin Cowherd made his debut on Fox Sports One today, but it's his sidekick Kristine Leahy who could ultimately steal the show.

The 27-year-old Midwesterner has a prominent spot on The Herd, reading out "The Herd Line News" and riffing back and forth with Cowherd and his producers. It's early, but the pair seem to have good chemistry on the air and on-screen. Cowherd's show should be a big draw for viewers, so Leahy will benefit from the exposure. 

Want to know more about both her life and her career? We’ve got you covered. Expect to see Leahy make more noise in the industry quite soon.
