Reporter and sportscaster Tiffany “Jill” Arrington is from the United States. She previously spent three years as a sports anchor at KCBS and KCAL in Los Angeles.

Early life and parents

On 1972, July 27 Jill Arrington was born to her parents Rick Arrington and Mary Jane Odum in Conyers, Georgia (USA).  Jill was an athlete as a child. She also played little league softball when she was six years old. She was extremely close to her father, who used to coach her as well.

Having said that, Jill was hooked on tennis, and her mother inspired her to play, and her grandmother gave her her first racket.

Her father, Rick Arrington, was a retired Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, and the two shared many well-deserved championships.

He also taught her how to play golf as a teenager, which became her favorite sport. During her school days, she was also an active cheerleader.

Jill earned a degree in political science and journalism with a minor in theater from the University of Miami in 1994.

She also joined the university’s tennis team, was named the Orange Bowl princess of the school, and merged with the Delta Gamma sorority.

Age, Height & Body Measurements

Jill, who is 49 years old, is aging like a fine wine that improves with time. Everybody will be watching this petite, athletic beauty present because of her flawless 33-24-35 body and 56 kg weight.

It is worth seeing her speak or host the show because she has eyes that are as blue as the ocean itself, a smile that slows the heartbeat, and a confident demeanor.

This stunning woman has hosted a variety of events, including tennis, arena football, college football, and the NFL. Many men’s magazines, including the most well-known one Playboy, have praised her good looks.


Arrington initially began her career as a producer. She started producing a program called Main Floor for nationally syndicated entertainment after graduating from the university.

She spent five years working as a producer for that show, and she also spent a year as a producer for Paramount’s Real TV.

The following year, 1999, Arrington began her career in sports when she began working as a sideline reporter for Fox Sports. For FOX NFL Sunday, she typically covered women’s tennis and features.

Later, she spent a season as the co-host of FOX Sport’s NFL Under the Helmet.

Additionally, she hosted the pre-game show for the Arena Football League on TNN.

She spent three seasons covering arena football games as a sideline reporter while working as a host.

Jill joined CBS Sports as the primary sideline reporter after working as a host and sideline reporter for TNN. She was employed for four years, covering the NFL Today show, US Open Tennis, and Southeastern Conference College Football.

She spent a year working for ESPN as a feature reporter on ESPN College Gameday and as the primary college football sideline reporter for primetime games.

Arrington then took a five-year hiatus from her job to raise her daughter. But in 2010, she made a comeback to FOX Sports.

She later hosted FSN’s NASCAR, College Football Saturday Preview, Verizon NFL Mobile Updates on FOX NFL Sunday, FoxSportsFlash, and NFL Online OT, and served as the sports anchor for FoxSports1’s 3 Things to Know.

Additionally, in October 2015, Arrington began working as a sports anchor for the Los Angeles duopoly of KCBS-TV/KCAL-TV.

She reported at various sporting events in Los Angeles while hosting a live, half-hour sports show that was anchored on evening newscasts.

Rumors and Controversies

However, she changed her Twitter bio to read “single mom” in 2015, which suggests that the couple almost got divorced in 2014.

As of right now, there are no rumors or details about her boyfriend, dating, or extramarital affairs.

Net Worth and Salary

Jill is well-known for being quite active in the American sports media and for earning one of the highest salaries at KBCS/KACL-FM.

She must have made a fortune, as we can all assume.

But regrettably, she received annual pay that was almost $60,000 less than the male employee she replaced.

Relationship Status

Dean Panaro, a four-time NCAA Champion diver, talent manager, and actor, was Dean’s husband. They first connected in Miami and dated for a while.

Arrington and Panaro were wed in a lavish ceremony at the Bel Air Hotel in Los Angeles on August 18, 2001.

She was ranked as the sexiest sportscaster that year by Playboy. She was listed at number 48 on Maxim’s Hot 100 Women in 2002, and she was listed at number 70 on FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women in 2003.

After three years, the couple welcomed a daughter, whom they named Presley Kate Panaro.
