Amy Lawrence is an American sports broadcaster who worked for ESPN Radio. But, Amy is best known for being the host of ”After Hours with Amy Lawrence,” a late-night show on CBS Sports Radio.
She was born on April 7, 1973, in Los Angeles, California, United States of America.
Lawrence grew up in New Hampshire with her brother.
Amy has a master’s degree from Syracuse University and completed her undergraduate studies at Messiah College (a private Christian college).
Her first job was in Rochester. In her words:
”When I secured my first “real” job in Rochester, New York, I frequently drove east to get back home or west and south to visit Grandma in Ohio.”
Lawrence later added:
”We didn’t have a lot of money, and I certainly wasn’t earning much in local radio, so my first four vehicles were all hand-me-downs.”
Amy spent 9 years at ESPN Radio (a flagship station which features the top national sports hosts from The World Wide Leader in sports) where she was also the first female in Oklahoma history to lead her own sports radio talk show. Interestingly, Amy was the only regular female host.
She said about her experience at ESPN Radio:
“I still felt like I stuck out like a sore thumb and that I was alone many times.”
In a different interview, Lawrence said:
”The locker room atmosphere meant constant jokes about sex and stories about sex.”
”While they didn’t necessarily offend me, hearing them from a bunch of men when I was the only woman often made me uncomfortable.”
