Krista Voda can be seen each week on the Fox network, as part of the Emmy-award
winning NASCAR broadcast team. Voda is a pit reporter for NASCAR on Fox, and its
coverage of the Sprint Cup Series. In addition, she covers football, both NFL and
college, for the network. She started the year covering The Cotton Bowl, alongside
legendary broadcaster Pat Summerall.
But Voda’s NASCAR duties are not limited to Sprint Cup racing. Voda also returns
this year as the pre-race host for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series on
If you’ve followed NASCAR at all over the last few years, you've undoubtedly heard
her name. In addition to her pit road and studio hosting roles with Fox and Speed,
Voda has hosted such popular programs as NASCAR Nation on Speed Channel and
Fox Sports Net's Totally NASCAR. Through it all, Krista Voda has established herself
as a veteran journalist in the motorsports industry.
But racing wasn’t always her game. In fact, it’s a sport that found her…when she
wasn’t looking. In 2001, Voda was the weekend sports anchor at WLEX in
Lexington, KY. Her work there included covering NCAA tournaments, College bowl
games, the NFL, World Series playoffs, and co-anchoring the station's annual live
coverage of The Kentucky Derby. But when a former co-worker (hi, Gary Johnson!)
called her up to tell her of a job opening in Charlotte, NC, Voda took her world, one
that had always revolved around “stick-and-ball” sports, and turned it around…
some 400-500 miles at a time!
Voda quickly dove into her new role as a reporter for Totally NASCAR. She soon
started filling-in behind the desk, and eventually became the host of that program.
Since then, and in addition to Nascar Nation, Voda has anchored such special
programming as The Dale Earnhardt Tribute Concert, Nextel's NASCAR Title
Sponsorship Announcement, and the weekend sportscast, Speed News.
In 2006, Voda joined the network’s primary racing series, The NASCAR Craftsman
Truck Series, as a pit reporter. That same year, she ventured into unchartered
territory, trading in 4-wheels for 2-wheels, as a pit reporter for the AMA’s
Supercross Series. This year, she hosted the first-ever live pre-race show for that
series. Also on her pit reporting resume: the NASCAR Busch Series on FX, the All-
American Soap Box Derby for ESPN, and several other racing series on Speed Channel, including American LeMans, Speed World Challenge, Star Mazda, and SCCA National Run-offs.
Voda has also served as a correspondent for the Sunday pre-race show, NASCAR This Morning, on Fox Sports Net, has worked the SEMA industry trade show, and has covered the Indy Racing League.
She is a regular contributor to racing websites, with articles on FoxSports.com, That'sRacin.com, and SpeedTV.com. She continues to be a part of several various radio programs across the country. In fact, Voda has an extensive background in radio, having worked for several different stations. Her broadcasting career began at KROS in her hometown of Clinton, IA.
When she’s not “on-air”, Voda can still be found “on the mic.” She has been the emcee and guest speaker of several different corporate and charitable events, including 3M, Tums, and Bank One. Her emcee services have also been utilized by NASCAR, where she has moderated everything from press conferences to awards banquets.
In addition to her work in motorsports, Voda has been a sideline reporter for Fox Sports' NFL and ACC basketball coverage and has made appearances on The Best Damn Sports Show Period. She will continue to cover football again this year for Fox.
Voda attended the University of Northern Iowa, where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Broadcast Journalism and Business Communications.
Today, Voda lives near Pittsburgh, PA.
