Suns.com: How are you feeling about moving back to Phoenix and joining the Suns’ broadcast and social media teams? Kayte Christensen: It’s extremely exciting, obviously, having played there for so long. I made great friends while I was there and the organization has such a fond spot in my heart. And I’m really excited to come back to work for the Suns. They have been my favorite NBA team for as long as I can remember and to have the opportunity to work for them is just amazing. Suns.com: Talk about your position as the first social media sideline reporter in the NBA. Christensen: It’s where broadcasting is going. There is such a social media drive now, as fans have an opportunity to be involved with their teams during games and talk to each other. So integrating that conversation with the broadcast involves fans on an even bigger scale. So to have the opportunity to be a part of that in its infancy is really exciting. NBA.com
