Charissa Thompson’s Direct Hit to the Eye
While she might be making even more on Fox Sports now, Charissa Thompson first got her start back on ESPN in the early 2000s. Eventually, she worked her way up to becoming the co-host of SportsNation along with Marcellus Wiley, where she stayed until she departed the network in 2013. However, before she left, Thompson gave us one of the best news anchor bloopers ever!
“Well, the best thing about this show is not taking yourself too seriously,” Thompson prefaced the blooper. Then, SportsNation cut to a behind-the-scenes clip where someone nailed Thompson right in the eye with a paper ball! And, from the look on her face, it looks like it must have hurt a bit!
