Minnesota native Jamie Erdahl promoted by CBS, calling her a 'rising star'

She went to Breck School and played two sports at St. Olaf.

The top college football broadcast team at CBS Sports now features two Minnesotans. 

Brad Nessler, the longtime play-by-play man from St. Charles, Minnesota, will now be joined by Bloomington's Jamie Erdahl, who was promoted to lead reporter for the network's "SEC Game of the Week." 

“Since joining CBS, Jamie has established herself as a talented, versatile and knowledgeable reporter," Executive Producer Harold Bryant said in a release. "She is a rising star and someone we know that will connect with and earn the respect from the coaches, players and passionate fans in the SEC.”

Erdahl was a talented multi-sport athlete at Breck School in Minnesota and went on to play college softball and basketball at St. Olaf University. 

She then switched to American University and got her degree in communications.
