CBS Sports Reporter Allie LaForce

Helllllllo Allie. Spotted the gorgeous Allie LaForce doing sideline duty during the Fresno State-Utah State game for CBS, and even all bundled up, she was quite a treat. So who is this Allie LaForce of CBS Sports? She’s a former beauty pageant turned sportscaster who is, likely, destined for bigger and better things. Let’s find out more about her, shall we?

Here’s Allie’s bio via her official site:

Always leading the action when it comes to local and national sports, Allie LaForce tackles any challenge head on. Allie is excited to announce that she is now part of the CBS Sports Network’s new NFL program, “THAT OTHER PREGAME SHOW” (TOPS). The show airs on CBS LIVE every Sunday leading up to game day from 9:00AM-1:00PM, ET.

Allie is currently co-host of “LEAD OFF.” It’s a live show seen weekdays on the CBS Sports Network from 12:00-1:00AM ET. The show includes commentary and debate on top stories.

She was honored to be a courtside reporter for the 2013 NCAA Division 1 Men’s Basketball Championship on CBS Sports. LaForce worked as a broadcast sports anchor and reporter for the Cleveland, Ohio FOX Affiliate WJW. She won a 2011 Emmy award for anchoring FOX 8′s “Friday Night Touchdown” high school football show. Allie is a journalism graduate from the Honors Tutorial College at Ohio University, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude.

She has worked as a color analyst, sideline reporter, and studio host for Sports Time Ohio, covering both the Mid-American Conference and the high school football and basketball championships.

    If Allie LaForce is reading this, she ought to send a shout out to those here in Seattle, the land of KIRO. Not to mention Charlotte, N.C., which is WBTV country.

    See you in Heavan Sandy Grossman 1935-2014.

  • Hawk Fan

    I bet Allie LaForce hasn’t heard that Arthur Smith, who use to have a show on CBS’ Charlotte affiliate WBTV years ago called “Carolina Calling” is dead at 93.

    • Bill Brendle’s ghost

      FYI, the owners of WBTV also own WWBT-TV, the NBC network station in Richmond, Va.

    When Allie LaForce was already 3 years old back in early 1992, Glenn Brenner, who was the sports director at CBS’ D.C. area affiliate WUSA-TV died. Note that WUSA is owned by Gannett, which is the publisher of USA Today & is the former WOIC-TV, WTOP-TV & WDVM-TV. Perhaps she ought to check out the tribute to him that WUSA aired that year on YouTube.

      12th Man, when she was 13, going on 14 in 2002, Wayne Cody, who was lead sports anchor from 1978-92 at CBS’ Seattle affiliate KIRO-TV in Seattle died. Cody retired in 1996 & also hosted a nightly sports call-in show on it’s now-former sister station KIRO Radio also in Seattle.

      Jim Thacker, who was sports director at CBS’ Charlotte, N.C affiliate WBTV in Charlotte, N.C. until his retirement in 1981 died of a stroke on Dec. 15th of that same year.

  • Worm

    I bet AL didn’t know that CBS’ Seattle affiliate KIRO-TV in Seattle use to bill their local news as “The News Specialists”. It’s also used by it’s former sister-station KSL-TV, the NBC affiliate in Salt Lake City in which KSL is owned by The Mormon Church, which also use to own KIRO-TV, which today is owned by Atlanta-based Cox Media Group. Cox also owns CBS’ Dayton, Ohio affiliate WHIO-TV.

    I know AL came to CBS Sports from WJW-TV, the Fox owned station in Cleveland, which use to be a CBS affiliate until 1995 when Fox bought them out. Today, WOIO-TV is CBS’ Cleveland affiliate in which they occupy virtual UHF channel 19. Now, WOIO was a Fox affiliate when the network started in the mid-80s. Before that they were an independent station dating back to their initial sign-on in 1985.

    Perhaps AL ought to check out a video on YouTube of a 1984 interview with Warner Wolf, then of WCBS-TV in New York & the late Glenn Brenner, then of WDVM-TV(now WUSA)in Washington that aired on CBS News Nightwatch, which has since been replaced by CBS News Up To The Minute. As WW use to say, “Let’s got to the video tape”.

    • Worm

      She also ought to check out a 2-part CBS News Nightwatch interview also from 1984 with the late Celtics owner Red Auerbach also on YouTube.

    Hey Allie. if you’re reading this, you ought to check out CBS affiliate WSAW-TV whenever you’re in the Wausau, WI. area

  • Motor City Moe

    I bet Allie LaForce didn’t know that CBS’ Detroit station WWJ-TV does not do local news. That network’s previous Detroit area affiliate WJBK was bought out by Fox in the mid-90s in which they are a Fox network O&O. This was blamed in part on CBS’ loss of telecast rights the National Football League’s NFC package after the ’93 season because they were outbided by the Fox network in which WJBK is a sister station to LaForce’s old station WJW in Cleveland.

    I notice Allie LaForce was one of the judges at tonight’s(6/8/14)Miss USA pagent that aired on NBC.
