San Diego – FOX Sports San Diego (FSSD) today welcomed Laura McKeeman, Kelly Crull and Megan Olivi to their distinguished team of broadcast talent. The trio comes to San Diego each with a unique background within the FOX family and joins FSSD’s returning veterans for this season’s Padres telecasts.

Laura McKeeman joins FOX Sports San Diego as the primary sideline reporter for Padres telecasts and will fill in throughout the season as Padres Live pregame and postgame host. McKeeman comes to San Diego from FOX Sports Florida where she was a contributing reporter for Tampa Bay Rays broadcasts as well as a sideline reporter for FOX Sports Big 12 football and Pac-12 basketball telecasts.

Former FOX Sports Southwest sideline reporter and host for the Oklahoma City Thunder, Kelly Crull, also joins the FOX Sports San Diego broadcast team as the host of FSSD’s Padres magazine show, Padres Weekly.

Finally, Megan Olivi joins the FOX Sports San Diego team as the host of Padres POV, FSSD’s fast-paced behind-the-scenes show that captures the essence of the San Diego Padres both on and off the field, and as Social Media Reporter during game broadcasts. Olivi made her on-air debut contributing to several FOX programs and is most widely known as the host of the UFC’s pre-fight show “Fight Day” and reporter for HeavyMMA.com.

“I’m very excited to add such quality and versatility to our talent lineup,” said Jeff Byle, Executive Producer, FOX Sports San Diego. “This accomplished group brings a variety of experience to our broadcast team. I’m confident their engaging styles will help raise the level of our telecasts.”
