NBC Sports’ Rebecca Lowe picks up Sports Illustrated media award

Dec 19, 2013, 8:54 PM EST

Rebecca Lowe hasn’t even completed a full season broadcasting the Premier League in the United States, but the NBC Sports talent has already began collecting honors. With their annual media awards, Sports Illustrated has tabbed the host as their Newcomer of the Year, saying Lowe “has already vaulted to the top of sports television studio hosts thanks to her intellect and knowledge of the league.”

“[Lowe] is the rare ego-free television presenter who makes a studio show about her colleagues,” writes Richard Deitsch, SI.com’s media reporter. “The greatest compliment a viewer can give you is to say you know your subject matter cold — and she does.”

The other candidates (honorable mentions) listed by Deitsch: Kevin Burkhardt (Fox), Pedro Martinez (TBS), Randy Moss (Fox Sports 1), Jay Onrait (Fox Sports 1) and Dan O’Toole (Fox Sports 1).

Prior to moving to the U.S., Lowe had covered sports for the BBC, Setanta Sports, and ESPN UK. This March, she agreed to join NBC and has anchored studio coverage of the Premier League since the beginning of the 2013-14 season. In addition to her responsibilities on the soccer side, Lowe will join the team covering this winter’s Sochi Olympics.

One of her latest Match of the Day efforts can be seen above, with Lowe helping Robbie Earl and Kyle Martino break down the Premier League title race.
