“The common denominator in my background is I was always pursuing a passion mixed with an opportunity,” Compagno told TheWrap after being named the new co-host of Fox News’ 12 p.m. ET show, “Outnumbered.”

Hear Her Speak

She explained that contrary to popular belief, she was an attorney before she cheered for the Raiders, and her colleagues encouraged and supported her when she tried out and made the team, eventually becoming captain. They even hosted their holiday party at the team’s stadium during a game.

“Part of why I was able to flourish there was because I, at the time, was practicing criminal defense with this amazing firm,” she said. “They were former professional athletes and coaches themselves and they represented a lot of professional athletes in many high-profile cases.”

Conclusion

Cheering for the Oakland Raiders was a longtime dream, not something that came “out of nowhere,” as was doing on-air legal analysis, she said.
