Kaci Kust Bio
Kaci Kust, a former DePauw University and Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy basketball player, is currently an analyst, reporter, social media coordinator and writer in Cincinnati.
Kust graduated as a Communications student focusing on Sports Media at Hope College, where she served as the school's only sports reporter and also a color analyst for the 2012 men's basketball tournament hosted at Hope. She created her own outlet for sports reporting since the school has no television station, covering numerous sporting events from soccer to football to volleyball to basketball. Kust reported, produced, shot and edited all of the content herself. She currently serves as the color analyst for University of Cincinnati women's basketball games for BearcatsTV.
Kust is also the Video and Social Media Coordinator for Ignition APG -- where NFL, NBA, MLB and college athletes train. She runs their Facebook, Twitter, blog and multiple YouTube channels - including producing, shooting, reporting and editing all the videos.
After being named the Cincinnati Enquirer's 2008 Player of the Year, Kust went on to play at DePauw University for a year before suffering a career ending knee injury. After ending her basketball career, she transferred to Hope College and began pursuing her career in television.
