Rise to Stardom

Ros Gold-Onwude did a number of odd jobs before she got her break on television. Fresh out of school, she worked briefly at Tesla Motors but decided to pursue sports broadcasting. She had a number secondary jobs like summer internships at Nike, teaching a public speaking course at Stanford, and working as a production assistant at the school radio station. At the same time, she created digital content for Stanford covering all the sports. She also wrote the school newsletter that kept track of recruits coming into Stanford football. However, she made little money, and even had to coach the basketball team of her landlord's daughter to get her rent halved.

During this time, her family was going through monetary troubles as there were ailing members. Frustrated, she even considered leaving the field and putting her master's degree to good use to get a regular job. However, a breakthrough came after she started developing a digital show around women’s basketball. Using her connections at PAC-12 Networks, she bagged a free-of-cost weekly show which gave her exposure and earned her the first television contract. She became sort of a celebrity in the Bay Area after working as a sideline reporter for the Golden State Warriors since their 2014-15 NBA championship win. She became so famous that fans outpoured their love and well-wishes after her decision to move to TNT was made public.

Playing Career

During her teenage years, Ros Gold-Onwude played basketball at Molloy High School. She was part of the school team that won the state titles in 2003 and 2004. Despite ending her senior season early due to knee injury, she graduated from the school as its second all-time leading scorer and the all-time leader in steals and assists.

In 2011, she became the first Molloy athlete to be inducted into the 'GCHSAA Hall of Fame'. She was also the first athlete in its history to accept a scholarship to Stanford University and play Division I basketball. During her freshman year at Stanford, she played as the starting point guard for the 2005-06 team under coach Tara VanDerveer. She was redshirted for the entire 2006-07 season following a second knee injury, but returned as a shooting guard in the next season. As part of the Stanford team, she played in three Final Fours and two national championship games, and was named the 'Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Year' in her final year. As starting guard, she also helped the Cardinals win four conference titles. Despite having successful career as a reporter and an analyst, she still plays basketball regularly.

Controversies & Scandals

While Ros Gold-Onwude has received a lot of love from fans as a reporter, she has also been the subject of numerous memes on the internet, something that makes her smile at times, but often leaves her worried and vulnerable. The first time she landed herself in a meme situation was while interviewing Klay Thompson, during which her remark about his efficiency on both offense and defense turned out to be a double entendre. However, the meme of her and Ayesha Curry during a post-game interview with Steph Curry made her the target of unwanted attention, and even cyber-bullying from women especially.

Personal Life

Ros Gold-Onwude was born on April 28, 1987, in Queens, New York to Pat Gold and Austin Onwude. She attended Archbishop Molloy High School in Briarwood, New York. She graduated from Stanford University with a Bachelor's degree in Communications, and also earned her Master's degree in Sociology of Organizations, Business, and the Economy from there. Her mother, who was the roommate of coach Tara VanDerveer at State University of New York in Albany, had contributed to her Stanford scholarship opportunity by sending her college tapes. She moved to Atlanta after signing a deal with Turner Sports in late 2017.
