Fox Sports broadcaster Joe Buck is perhaps best known as the play-by-play announcer for the network’s MLB and NFL coverage, but a new girlfriend has the 44-year-old making headlines of his own.
Buck, 44, is reportedly dating NFL Network reporter Michelle Beisner, The Big Lead reports. During a Tuesday phone interview with the website, Beisner confirmed that she and Buck had been dating for “awhile.”
Sources reportedly told The Big Lead that Buck and Beisner “got friendly” at last February’s Super Bowl in New Orleans, and started dating soon afterward. Buck has yet to officially comment on the reports concerning his new girlfriend.
Beisner has spent the last seven years working as a field reporter and host for NFL Network, the Big Lead reports. The 36-year-old also served as a Denver Broncos cheerleader for six years, four of which were spent as the unit’s captain. Beisner also spent time working for ESPN and Fox Sports.
However, Beisner’s accomplishments aren’t limited to the sports world. She’s also an accredited actress, and has had film roles in “Any Given Sunday,” “Throttle,” and “Alice and Wasteland.”
This isn’t the first time that Buck’s personal life has been the source of public speculation. In 2010, the 44-year-old’s mother, Carol Buck, confirmed to reporter Jerry Berger that Joe and his wife, Ann, had decided to “take a break.” Although Buck’s representatives initially denied that the couple were getting a divorce, a 2012 Sports Illustrated feature confirmed that Buck and his wife had indeed separated.
