10. PIA ARCANGEL
Pia Arcangel is credited as the first ever courtside reporter for the Ateneo Blue Eagles when the games were first aired on Studio 23 in 2002. Being the girl on the inside, Pia was a breath of fresh air to viewers of the games, reporting right from the dugout. These days, Pia is one of the hottest women in news, a co-anchor with Raffy Tima on GMA News TV and 24 Oras Weekend with Jiggy Manicad. She’s also a mainstay on Unang Hirit and the host of the kids’ show Art Angel on GMA 7.
9. TRACY ABAD
Here’s something you might not know about courtside reporters—they don’t necessarily come from the school they represent. Tracy, for example, is a graduate of Assumption College, but went on to become the courtside reporter for the UE Red Warriors for two seasons. She’s juggled courtside reporting alongside a stint as a DJ on Jam 88.3. No doubt that Tracy’s got the looks and the skill to stay on our radar. This girl can light up an entire room with just her fresh face, more so when she smiles. Nowadays you can catch her on The Wakeup Show on Mellow 94.7.
