Jared Anderson


Jared was born in Louisville, KY, on September 22, and attended the University of Louisville from August 2012 - December 2016. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Music with a minor in Communication. During his time in college, he followed UofL sports passionately and began to cover them for several media outlets.


Jared's sports media journey began with Big Red Louie of FanSided, owned by Sports Illustrated. After leaving Big Red Louie, Jared joined River City Cards, a then- up and coming Louisville sports website. He continued writing for RCC when he also joined the The Louisville Cardinal, UofL’s student newspaper. It was with The Cardinal where Jared first tried his hand at photography, photographing football, volleyball, swimming, baseball, and softball. During the summer of 2016, Jared took over the role of editor-in-chief of River City Cards.


As he became more known in sports media, Cardinal Couple, a website covering mainly women’s sports noticed his work; and Jared appeared on their radio show every so often. In mid-2017, Jared began working for Cardinal Couple full-time as their official photographer. He continued to work for River City Cards, but took a step back- bringing in another co-editor, Mike Gilpatrick. Jared and Mike continued to grow the site as River City Cards covered all sports at UofL. They picked up the Louisville Bats in the 2018 calendar year, where he oversaw the photographers as Senior Photographer for River City Cards.

Jared had the chance to cover a game of the Team USA Women's National Basketball team in spring 2020, his only experience with Olympic sports, so far.


Also in late 2017, Jared tried photography beyond sports. Through the help of some friends and volunteers he was able to get his first photo shoots completed. Jared continues to do personal photoshoots, while sports photography remains his passion.
