Linda is a master at her craft. She can relate to the true sports fan because she IS a true sports fan. She is a brilliant storyteller who uses her wit, imagination, and passion for sports to make the stories she delivers come alive. She connects with her viewers because she is the real deal.

A huge sports fan herself, and someone who even has a history of playing hockey as a goaltender in the women's ice hockey league at SUNY Oswego, ladies, and gentlemen, we present you today with the brilliant and beautiful American sportscaster Linda Cohn.    

Her powerful voice and charismatic personality make everyone's head turn and she undoubtedly stands out in the crowd of players.

Although she has smartly managed to keep her personal life a secret, she bravely mentioned everything about it in her memoir titled "Cohn-Head: A No-Holds-Barred Account of Breaking Into the Boys Club", which was released in 2008.

She is a divorced, single mother, a beautiful soul, and a power-packed woman. Let's find all the details about her personal life in this section.

Linda was previously married to her husband Stew Kaufman: The marriage ended up in a divorce

Linda was a happily married woman and had been married for a long time to her now ex-husband Stew Kaufman.

After twenty years of wedding bliss, the couple shockingly decided to part ways and Linda filed for divorce from her husband in 2008.

The real reason behind their divorce has not been revealed clearly by the reporter. However, in an interview with SeattleTimes.Nwsource.com, she confessed what made this divorce happen.

As she has also mentioned about in her memoir, she shared, "I thought I loved Stew and I said 'I love you' to him frequently, "I had to admit that, emotionally, I was always holding a little bit back. I was afraid to give everything I had because I wasn't sure it would come back to me."

So it seems like, the distance separating the two as Linda was juggling between her busy work schedule and her personal life. Eventually, the two got divorced in 2008 and Linda is still single.

According to the sources, Stew and Linda are now on good terms, maintaining their friendship and doing well raising their two adorable kids.

The family of four are still together, although Linda and Stew are no longer together. Linda and Stew agreed to joint custody of the children and are raising their kids together.

Now, Dan and Sammy have grown up to be handsome young men and beautiful young women.

Deadspin.com reported that her schedule is so packed that she doesn't have time to go on dates and have a stable relationship.

She quoted, " To be honest, I've never really been on too many dates in my life. I'm one of the get–drunk–and–hook–up–with–the–first–person–who–talks–to––types!"

Perhaps this is the major reason behind her choice to remain single.

In her memoir, Linda has shared all the painful experiences she's had while growing up. During her childhood, she used to wear big glasses and she didn't think she was pretty enough. 

Later in her teens, she suffered self-esteem issues and she's boldly jotted it down in her autobiography.

Not only that, she also shared that she didn't go out much on dates as it didn't interest her that much. 

While growing up she used to watch all these games on TV with her dad and that's how she got the passion for sports and landed up as the most renowned sportscaster in the industry.
