Rachel is one of the bright, young rising stars in our business. She's smart. She works hard at her craft. She is respected by players, coaches, and other members of the media. I always enjoy having Rachel on my show because, quite simply, she knows her stuff.

Captivating, authentic and professional, Ms. Baribeau transcends layers to pull out the story-behind-the-story. Any Fortune 500 would be lucky to work with such a talented professional.

Rachel is one of the most prepared, passionate, well-informed and insightful guests I have ever had on my show in over 15+ years on the air. Her weekly segment is easily the most anticpated on the show by my listeners and I have never had a guest that elicits numerous marriage proposals as Rachel does each week.
Talk Show Host, Sports Director and former ESPN Program Director
Rachel is hardwired for our business. She pursues "the story" because of her raw passion to win. She gets it right because she cares. She's like that proverbial drip that can wear a hole in a rock. I'd want her on my team!
Lead Studio Analyst CBS Sports
Rachel has a boundless energy and passion for sports journalism that is both impressive and infectious. For her, stardom in her chosen field is an inevitability, not a possibility.

Rachel is a great person to work with. She shows up with a great attitude every day and is as pleasant to be around as anyone you will ever meet. But when she gets her teeth into a story, you find that she is also part pit bull: she keeps digging and working at it until she gets answers. Simply put, Rachel Baribeau is a multimedia sports journalist.
Sports Editor, Tuscaloosa News
It didn't take long for me to realize Rachel is the total package: passionate, hard-working, caring. She searches for not only the truth, but the good in all of us. I'm glad our paths crossed and look forward to more conversations in the future.
