A Fort Worth resident, she also hosts a weekly radio show, "The Big E Sports Show,” which airs in seven markets, including Lawton (2 p.m. Friday on KXCA-AM 1380).

"I’m a longtime NBA enthusiast, so this is truly living a dream,” she said.

Her work as the sideline reporter for the Idaho State-OU pay-per-view telecast — her first TV work in five years — helped her land the Thunder job.

"I know they would like for me to do more (games), but I’m realistic about what all I can juggle,” she said. "You can’t outsource being a mommy.”
