The primary highlight of radio personality Kristi Lee's career was when she joined radio hosts Bob Kevoian and Tom Griswold in 1984 as the news director of the nationally syndicated morning show "The Bob & Tom Show." Lee has continued to join the show as a key character for more than 20 years and travels with the duo to comedy routines throughout the United States.
Additional highlights of Kristi Lee's career include working as a sideline reporter on ESPN and ESPN2, where she covered auto racing, the first three X Games and lacrosse. Lee also worked as a sideline reporter for the NBA's Indiana Pacers in the mid 1990s. Lee launched her broadcasting career at Ben Davis High School as a reporter for the school's station WBDG before attending Indiana University. Lee's birth name is Theresa Ritz.
Lee helped to evolve "The Bob and Tom Show" by delivering newscasts with shocking or humorous headlines throughout each morning show. She participates in on-air skits and arranges interviews and guests for the show that include popular, up and coming, and veteran comedians. The longtime radio personality defined her role as a "reactor" versus a "leader" when interviewed by the "Charleston Post and Courier" newspaper.
