Thursday afternoon, FOX Sports announced that Jamie Little will join the NASCAR on FOX broadcast team beginning in January 2015.
Little, who has worked for several years with ABC and ESPN, will serve as pit road reporter for the Sprint Cup Series and the new XFINITY Series.
According to a release, Little will also have “select additional races and special events throughout the year.”
“Jumping over to FOX will be a big change for me, but this is the perfect time in my life and I welcome the challenge,” Little said. “For some broadcasters, NASCAR often is a steppingstone to where they want to be in another sport or realm of entertainment. But NASCAR is my NFL, and the Daytona 500 is my Super Bowl. All I’ve ever wanted to do is cover racing, so the fact FOX approached me with the opportunity to continue covering the sport I love so much is a true honor. I’ve covered 11 Indy 500s and eight Brickyard 400s, and now I’ll have the chance to cover my first Daytona 500 in February. That will be a huge feather in my cap.”
Little began her career in broadcasting in 2002 and has worked with ABC, ESPN, SPEED, NBC and TNN, covering the Sprint Cup and Nationwide series, IndyCar Series and the Summer and Winter X Games.
Additionally, she was the first female pit reporter to cover the Indianapolis 500.

Maybe FOX can replace Goofus-and-Doofus, AKA Chris Meyers and Michael “Motormouth” Waltrip, with her.
