MORE ABOUT KACY ...

Kacy is a Youngstown, OH native and grew up loving all things sports. She’s a die-hard baseball fan and loved watching her brother play college baseball. She earned a Journalism degree from Youngstown State University. After working as a news and sports television producer, she moved to Chicago and began relentlessly pursuing sports broadcasting. This time, in front of the camera, she was driven to tell athletes' stories of trials and triumph. 

She started by covering high school sports and shooting stand ups outside of the United Center. Soon after, she was covering the Windy City Thunderbolts, the Chicago Bandits and the Chicago Steel.


Recently, Kacy was the sideline reporter for the Big East Softball Tournament on FS2. Kacy also works as the Social Media Director for CHGO Sports, where she also appears regularly on podcasts and live shows.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ...

"I had the pleasure of managing Kacy this summer with the Chicago Bandits and she was easily one of the hardest working individuals I have managed in a long time. She was able to cover the content that made our team special. Our players always raved about how Kacy asked them intelligent and thoughtful questions that weren't your typical "how did that home run feel" type of questions. Kacy was able to bring out the best of our players, and organization and I couldn't thank her enough for that. She worked hard to be better than she was the day before, and that was evident. By the end of the season you could see how comfortable she was. She easily made our social media reach and presence better with each game covered. Kacy would be a great addition to any organization she works for." - Jourdan Skirha, Chicago Bandits Assistant General Manager
