Biography of Lindsay Rhodes
The exact date of birth of Lindsay Rhodes is not known for certain. Online information claims that she was born on 31 December 1976, but this information is not trustworthy because she made a post about her birthday on 26 February. In the post, she included a picture of her sharing some funny moments on set with her colleagues from the NFL Network. Although her actual date of birth remains uncertain, her year of birth is definitely 1976 and the birth of the reporter, who was born Lindsay Overman-Soto, took place in Orange County California. She is an American nationality, but nothing is known about her ethnicity and her parents.
Lindsay attended El Toro High School in Lake Forest, California, where she began to take an active part in reporting. In recognition of her skills at the time, she was named the sports editor of the school’s yearbook. With this role, Lindsay believed she had satisfied her early desire for journalism, but this was not the case.
Her continuing desire to be in the reporting community led her to pursue further studies at the University of Southern California in 1994. Four years later she earned a degree in broadcast journalism.
Lindsay Rhodes has a relatively long history in sports reporting. She began her career during her college years when she did an internship in the sports department of USC and Fox Sports Net.
Immediately after graduating, she snatched a job as a reporter for the ABC subsidiary KVEW-TV in the Washington Tri-Stadiums in 1999. The following year, she was made aware of this by a subsidiary of the FOX network, KKFX-TV. The network, which is based in Santa Barbara, California, then hired her as a presenter for sports during the week. Shortly thereafter, she was given a higher position to work for FOX Sports Net West.
In this role, she hosted college games as a side reporter and also covered events for professional teams in Los Angeles. Her dedication and accurate reporting soon earned her a reputation as one of the most visible reporters and presenters. After more than five years of service with the station, she joined NBC Sports and continued her outstanding work. As a former NBC sports reporter, she was responsible for coverage of the 2008 Summer Olympics. She also worked for Versus, another NBC Sports Group station, where she hosted the Stanley Cup playoffs.
