Sports fan works closely with Los Angeles teams

Sports Illustrated and Empower Onyx are spotlighting the diverse journeys of black women in sports — from veteran athletes to rising stars, coaches, executives and more — in the series, Elle-evate: 100 Influential Black Women in Sports.


If you asked Denise Jones to describe herself, she’d say she’s a sneakerhead and a fan of all things Los Angeles sports. She says her ability to talk and chat about anything is a secret weapon, which she uses in her myriad professional roles.

Jones prides herself on being well-versed in the many different capacities of the sports media industry: on-air TV host, sports personality, producer, writer, business developer, and consultant are all roles she has filled. His resume includes high-profile clients such as Nike, Adidas, Puma, Shoe Palace and many more. But more than anything, the young professional attributes her success to her ability to be vulnerable and work hard.
