CHILDHOOD

Connie Dierking of the Cincinnati RoyalsCammy Dierking was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, with her four sisters and two loving, wonderful, athletic parents. Cammy’s mother, Sue, was an accomplished swimmer and diver. Her father, Connie Dierking, was a basketball star at the University of Cincinnati in the late 1950’s. He went on to play professionally for 11 years, most of that time with the Cincinnati Royals and Philadelphia 76ers.   

When Connie left the NBA, he became a Television Color Commentator for U.C. basketball games. That's when Cammy discovered her passion for Broadcasting. Cammy would either sit with her father, courtside, and help keep game statistics, or she’d head for the Production Truck and watch the TV crew work their magic. She was hooked!

TELEVISION

Cammy Dierking with Donnie OsmandAfter graduating from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio with an English/Journalism degree, Cammy was eager to find a job in television. She got her first (not so big) break when she landed a job as a Production Assistant at SportsTime Cable Network. From there, she moved to Raleigh, North Carolina, where she did both Sports and News Reporting at WPTF-TV.

Cammy got her first Sports Anchor gig at KTVN-TV, in Reno. Cammy was one of the first women sportscasters in the country, and THE first in the state of Nevada. In 1988, to the delight of her family and friends, Cammy moved back to her hometown of Cincinnati, and became a Sports Anchor at WKRC-TV. Again, she broke new ground by becoming the first female Sports Anchor in the state of Ohio.

While Cammy enjoyed her pioneering role as a Sports Anchor, she eventually moved into a new arena… morning television. Cammy co-hosted a 3-hour show on WKRC-TV: ‘Good Morning Cincinnati’. She seemed to have found her niche. Known for her sunny disposition, boundless energy, and big smile, Cammy was a big hit! The show dominated its slot in the ratings during her 13 years as co-host.    

In 2005, Cammy took on a new role at WKRC-TV:  Evening News Anchor. She now delivers news every weeknight at 5p, 6p, and 11p on WKRC-TV, Local 12, and at 10p on Star64

SPORTS

Cammy running in the Ironman TriathlonA former collegiate swimmer, Cammy is still very active and athletic. While she enjoys relaxing sports like golf and fishing, Cammy really loves to challenge her body and mind with more hard-core pursuits. A self-proclaimed fitness fanatic, she usually works out 2-3 hours a day. Cammy is also an avid cyclist who does century bike rides (100 miles) at events around the country. She has also finished 12 marathons, and countless shorter races.

But her true love is the sport of Triathlon, which combines swimming, bicycling and running. Cammy has competed in many sprint, international and half-Ironman distance triathlons. Among her biggest accomplishments, Cammy completed IRONMAN Louisville in 2007, and IRONMAN Coeur d’Alene in 2010. A full IRONMAN consists of a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike, and 26.2 mile run.

FAMILY

Married for 26 years, Cammy and her husband have three wonderful daughters she calls ”the air in her lungs”. Whitney, Casey and Meg are beautiful and athletic young women who keep their parents hopping. Cammy says she feels so incredibly blessed… and life is good!
