“She only has one flaw,” KCAL Channel 9 sports anchor John Ireland says of Jaime Maggio, the feature subject of Friday’s media column to go with the annual best-and-worst list of the L.A sports anchors, reporters and talent.
“We share a desk at KCBS/KCAL,” Ireland continued, “and she has showered our desk with N.Y. Giants and Yankees stuff. She is more in need of Team LA gift card than anybody in town — I think I’m getting her one for her birthday.”
Born in New York and raised on Long Island until she moved to Rancho Palos Verdes at age 14, Maggio has been with KCAL since May on both the weekend “Sports Central” shows and the weeknight versions, either anchoring alone or with Gary Miller. She’s also been a regular on LTV, the Lakers pre- and post-game shows, as well as the Dodgers pre-game shows.
Find out more about her, and how she made her way into the latest Top 10 list.
