Locker Room Talk: NFL Sideline Reporter MJ Acosta-Ruiz
From Miami Dolphins Cheerleader to regional sports reporter to anchor of NFL Network's premiere headline show, "NFL Total Access"; MJ Acosta-Ruiz knows a thing or two about taking a chance, and betting on herself.
MJ opens up about what it’s really like to be a sports journalist. Every sideline reporter, writer, anchor and entertainment industry professional goes through it, but it is rarely talked about: the unpredictability and loneliness of the job.
She also openly talks about stripping away the industry norms as it pertains to women and especially women of color working in sports broadcasting. The highlight of her career so far was interviewing J. Lo and Shakira before their iconic Super Bowl performance, in English and in Spanish.
