Biography[edit]

Austin grew up in Seattle, Washington, in what she called a "Hockey family." She figure skated as a child.[1] Austin graduated cum laude with a degree in Broadcast Journalism from Oklahoma City University. She received an award from the Oklahoma Broadcaster’s Association, was a Congressional Intern and studied international media in London.[citation needed]

Austin won the Miss Nebraska USA 2004 title in a state pageant held in late 2003.[2] During her reign, she spoke to thousands of school children and toured the USS Nebraska Submarine and Camp Pendleton. It was her second attempt at the title, as she placed as a semi-finalist in the 2002 event. Austin represented Nebraska in the Miss USA 2004 pageant but failed to place.[citation needed]

Austin began her broadcasting career as a sports intern for KETV in Omaha, Nebraska covering Husker Football and UNO Hockey.[when?][citation needed] In 2012 she won a Capital Emmy award for a documentary of the Washington Capitals season which she hosted.[3][4] She worked as host of the Capitals Red Line program between 2010[5] and 2013[6][7]

NESN hired Austin as a reporter in 2014.[8] In June 2016, when the Red Sox made an extra inning comeback against the White Sox, Austin was caught in the crossfire of the teams exuberant Gatorade celebration, an incident covered by sportscasters around the United States.[9][10][11][12][13][14]
