You may know Karyn Bryant as a current FOX Sports 1 reporter and host for the Ultimate Fighting Championship, but she has had a long and successful career that began well before her time with the UFC. Born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, Bryant eventually went on to obtain her bachelor’s degrees in political science and sociology from Brown University.
As a big fan of music — which you can tell from her “music snob” quip on social media — Bryant landed a gig as a VJ on MTV. She went on to host Sound fX on FX, before continuing her climb up the media ladder with TNT. Bryant has also worked with TBS, VH1, CNN, ESPN, and Showtime Championship Boxing.
Bryant took that dip into the combat sports world and turned it into another job with CBS where she joined the Elite Xtreme Combat announcer team. She went on to take her enthusiasm for mixed martial arts to launch MMAheat.com, which she co-owns, and ultimately her current job hosting “UFC Tonight” on FOX Sports 1.
