Vanessa is currently a sports anchor and reporter in Houston, Texas for the NBC affiliate (KPRC-TV.) She is also a fill-in host on Sports Radio 610, the Texans' flagship station, where she drives four-hour sports talk shows. 


She covers every professional sports team in Houston at home and on the road; telling stories and creating content for both on-air and digital spaces, as well as breaking sports news regularly. She has covered the World Series twice, the Kentucky Derby, and the past seven Indianapolis 500s.

Prior to landing in Houston, Vanessa worked in Cincinnati for two years covering news and sports for the NBC affiliate. She was also a freelance pit reporter. 

She got her start in Indianapolis as a college student, where she was hired by an FM radio station to cover the Colts and the Indy 500. She also served as the in-arena host for the Indiana Pacers, and spent time as the sports correspondent for the nationally syndicated "Bob and Tom Show."

Her true passion is telling exciting human interest stories that go way beyond highlights and stats, be it in the studio or on the sideline.
