31-year-old Charissa Thompson has left ESPN for Fox Sports 1, which launches in August. Charissa Thompson used to c0-host  Numbers Never Lie and Sports Nation on ESPN.

Charissa Thompson also did a lot of NFL sideline reporting for Fox. And a whole lot of college football and college basketball games for Big Ten Network and Fox Sports Net. She also appeared on the college football shows Friday Night Tailgate, on Big Ten Network; as well as BCS Breakdown and The BCS Show on FSN. Friday Night Tailgate was pretty awful. Sure, we had the hotness of Charissa Thompson, but it was juxtaposed against those two annoying dorks!

Charissa Thompson also co-hosted FSN’s The Best Damn Sports Show Period alongside Chris Rose and John Salley. The show was canceled in July of 2009.

Also that year, Charissa Thompson was nominated one of Playboy’s Sexiest Sportscasters of the year. She made it to the finals, but the award was given to ESPN’s Erin Andrews. The Erin Andrews comparisons are inevitable, and will no doubt persist during her career; rightfully or wrongfully.

The Seattle native currently lives in Hermosa Beach, CA. She is a graduate of UC-Santa Barbara. That would make her a Gauchette, just like another famous sideline reporter: Jaime Maggio. (go here for that photo gallery)
