Reporter, ACCN, and Formula 1 Commentator
Former Louisville volleyball star Katie George joined the ACC Network at its launch in 2019. She now serves as a reporter for ESPN/ABC Saturday college football games alongside Joe Tessitore and Jesse Palmer, and contributes to coverage several ESPN properties, including the XFL and NBA.
She also is the host and moderator of ESPN’s “Unlapped” video podcast that covers Formula 1 racing and she hosts a race review program for ESPN’s digital platforms after every F1 race. In addition, she contributes to ESPN digital preview shows for F1 races in America, usually from the race venue.
Prior to joining ESPN, she worked WDRB in Louisville as the station’s sports anchor and reporter. Most recently, George was the Milwaukee Bucks’ team sideline reporter for the 2018-19 season.
George, the 2015 ACC Player, Setter and Scholar-Athlete of the Year, helped Louisville to conference championships in three different leagues. She was a three-time first team all-conference selection earning accolades in the American (2013) and the ACC (2014 and 2015). Also, in 2015, George was crowned Miss Kentucky USA and went on to finish in the top 11 of the Miss USA pageant while receiving the event’s “People Choice Award.”
She graduated from Louisville magna cum laude in three years, with a degree in communications and a minor in sports administration.
