Former news reporter Brittany Frederick began her sports journalism career just days after turning 18, when she auditioned cold for ESPN's "Dream Job" search for the next "SportsCenter" anchor. Though she didn't make the cut, she earned a job alongside one of the show's top six finalists at a sports news website, where she proactively established her niche as the site's first and only poker analyst. There was an instant response to her work: within 72 hours of her arrival, she was promoted to the senior staff, and one of her early articles garnered the attention of pro player Phil Gordon.
She credits Gordon with helping to launch her career, as he invited her to report from the set of his Bravo TV series "Celebrity Poker Showdown," which she did for its fourth and fifth tournaments. At the same time she began to work on the World Poker Tour. Herself a former College World Series of Poker participant, Brittany has since been involved with the poker world for nearly a decade, and returns to the WPT for the upcoming season ten.
In addition to her poker expertise, Brittany has written extensively on her childhood sport of baseball, as well as football, college football, and college basketball. She also provides her own commentaries on various issues in and around the sports world as a whole, relying on her unique perspective as a successful sportswriter who also happens to be a woman and a disabled athlete. She still plays sports just as often as she writes about them, having tried her hand at everything from football to archery.
At the same time that she works and plays in the sports world, Brittany has gone on to expand her career by establishing herself as a respected entertainment reporter, who covers television, film, music and popular culture for an audience both domestic and international.
Brittany currently resides in Southern California, where she was born and raised. You can reach her on her website (brittany-frederick.com) and follow her on Twitter (@tvbrittanyf).
Thank you. The Padres made a good trade today.
