Ayesha Curry, Wife of NBA Superstar Steph Curry, Lands Her Own Food Network Cooking Show

With an eye toward millennial viewership, Food Network has had the foresight to add one of 2016’s most recognizable faces to its programming lineup — Ayesha Curry, the wife of Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry and the reigning NBA MVP. For the last two years, Ayesha has shared cooking videos on her YouTube channel, often featuring her husband. Curry also hosted a local television show, Cookin’ with the Currys, on Comcast Sportsnet, the same network that broadcasts her husband’s games. For now, Curry’s show, which will air on the Cooking Channel, Food Network’s sister network, is “an idea with Ayesha” that is still in development.
