Joumana Kidd is an unconventional figure with a creative passion that has already established herself as a renowned sports journalist making frequent appearance in the media. Born in Foster City, Calif, Joumana Kidd is a graduate of San Francisco State with a Bachelor’s Degree in Speech Communications and a minor in Cultural Communication. Kidd started her career in the world of media by taking up modeling during her years of study at San Francisco State. Within a short time the highly talented lady ended up being a "spokesmodel," in which she appeared as a "Bud girl."
Upon completion of her college studies, she accepted an offer from Anheuser-Busch to join their corporation as a marketing representative. This opportunity paved the way for her entry into the field of broadcast, and towards that end Joumana Kidd’s career has flourished without any signs of slowing down. Kidd’s broadcast resume includes the role of national news correspondent for both the entertainment TV news program Extra and NBA Entertainment. She has covered the red carpet for Extra at the Grammy Awards, The Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame inductions and the Daytime Emmys. In addition to interviewing most top athletes, within a year of tenacious reporting at Extra, Joumana also obtained interviews with top celebrities from Robert DiNiro, Penelope Cruz, Colin Farrell and Tom Cruise to Jewel, P-Diddy, Jay- Z, Sheryl Crow and Sharon Osbourne. She also has appeared on NBC’s hit drama Third Watch.
Early in her career Kidd was also the co-host of a weekly sports show, Suns Jam Session, with KPNX-12, the NBC affiliate in Phoenix, Arizona. Additionally, she co-hosted “Talking Sports”, a weekly radio show that focused on the positive side of sports. She also appeared in the movie, “Whiplash,” which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in 2001. With tantalizing good looks, Kidd was named the official spokesmodel for Tereme de Salsomaggiore Skin Care in 2000.
Throughout her career, Kidd has consistently been active in different not-for-profit organizations such as the Jason Kidd Foundation, which is focused on improving the welfare of youth in the community by providing funding for children’s medical research; she is the national spokesperson for the North Shore Animal League and is currently active on several boards including the Yogi Berra Museum, the Nets/Devils Foundation and the Arizona Heart Ball and Crisis Nursery.
She and soon to be ex-husband, Jason Kidd have three children, son TJ, and twin girls Miah and Jazelle. Joumana Kidd has been able to find a healthy balance in her life between family, career and personal well-being and is looking forward to continuing her ascension in the world of entertainment journalism.
