Is charissa thompson married?
Sources suggest that ESPN basketball analyst and Sportsnation host Charissa Thompson is not married and is dating former Chicago Bulls guard and Duke Blue Devils star Jayson "Jay" Williams. Although pictures of them posing together have appeared on Twitter, ESPN says it will not confirm or deny a romantic relationship between the two.
Through the course of her career Williams worked for FSN Rocky Mountain, the Big Ten Network, and Fox Sports Net, and now ESPN's SportsNation.
After Michele Beadle left ESPN, Thompson officially took her place as the SportsNation co-host on June 4, 2012. Thompson had previously been hosting Numbers Never Lie on the network, and was doing a good job, but the show had a bad time slot and was never able to gain a solid audience.
Of interest, Thompson is currently hosting Splash, the new celebrity diving show on ABC with actor Joey Lawrence. Her contract with ESPN is up in July 2013 and rumor has it that she will be heading back to Fox Sport Net.
