As well as hosting The Longhorn Network’s flagship program, “Longhorn Extra,” she covered the 2013 College World Series and the 2012-13 college football and college basketball seasons. During her career at CBS Sports, she covered CBS and Turner Sports’ online NCAA Men’s basketball tournament and CBSSports.com’s PGA Championship and tennis’ U.S. Open. She also contributed to NCAA.com and SI.com’s College World Series and BCS National Championship coverage.
Along with her duties at CBS Sports, Kaylee also worked in the CBS News Washington Bureau as a reporter on the daily “Washington Unplugged” program and was a featured correspondent for “Unplugged Under 40.” Kaylee first joined CBS News as Bob Schieffer’s assistant and quickly advanced to associate producer of the Sunday public affairs program “Face the Nation.”
