The Top 10 Hottest UAAP Female Courtside Reporters (So Far)
On and off the court, these girls know how to deliver.
Published on: Jul 6, 2012 - 7:00am


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.




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.

    A couple of comments:
    1. UAAP started to air on Studio 23 in 2000, not 2002.
    2. Dig deeper on your research. Sobrang dami ng naging courtside reporter sa UAAP and aside from Patty Laurel, e malamang late last decade na nagsimulang manood ng UAAP ang writer nito kaya kung ano na lang naalala nya, yun na lang nilagay nya.

    What are your basis of choosing the top 10 ? Biased I can say. There are some court side reporters should have been included like dimples Romano etc.

    What? Trish Roque is hotter than Pia Arcangel? Saang anggulo?
    Where's Riki Flores? She should be in this list.
    Why is madame Auring the hottest courtside reporter? Did nose job and "maasim" do the trick to get you to number one?
    This list is crap.

    Ewan ko lang sa #1 ha. I think Riki Flores should be on this list. And Andi Manzano shoud've been on the #2 or 3 spot!!

    My favorites in the list.. Sharon Yu and Andi.

    Gretchen Fullido is number 1 maybe because she had the longest stint as a CSR. Tapos ngayon siya pa pinaka visible sa TV. ABSCBN News will not get her if she isn't good. Change the title na lang to - 10 Best and Most Accomplished UAAP CRS. :)

    If it's just the hottest reporters, then why is Andi Manzano just #8?

    Tis is top ten HOTTEST people..not ten best so no need comparing their styles and class. I agree that it should be patty or andi at the top though.

    What if maliit ang boobs ni Gretchen Fullido ? i think she will be not included in the list. pero ang laki kasi... kaya number 1. okay rin si Andi and Jessica, kaya lang medjo small ang top.. top size lang ata ang ranking.. :|

    Why is Gretchen on #1? I totally disagree. :|

    Gretchen maybe the hottest, but she doesn't have the class of Andi Manzano, Sharon Yu and Patty Laurel.

    Fullido's intelligent, but to be number 1 on this list?! Although quite the vamp these days, Trish Roque was a tad too sweet then. The best i've heard reporting from UAAP court side were Riki Flores and Tracy Abad.

    @toyang: Grabe naman yung macho! Haha. Riki's not pa-cute and I find that hot. :D

    Gretchen Fullido No.1?? Someone needs glasses!! Think you missed something here too. Could or COULDN'T?

    Andi was the courtside reporter for the FEU Tamaraws for Season 70, and we could keep our eyes off that girl's flawless face and those big brown eyes.

    Nice list. I think Andi Manzano should join the PBA on AKTV. As far as I know, she is not seen on Party Pilipinas anymore.

    I think Gretchen's weather reporting stint on ANC is one of her first job outside UAAP. She's still part of ANC, delivering entertainment news.
