From covering a 10-win NBA season to reporting on the longest win streak to end the regular season in NBA history, Molly Sullivan made her mark in Philadelphia. Earning the trust and respect of viewers, players, coaches and others around the league, Molly proved to tell the story with a professional and authentic approach.
With 13-years of experience in television, 10 of those years in sports, Molly currently works for the World Champion Philadelphia Eagles as a host and reporter. On gamedays, Molly hosts the pregame and halftime show along with RedZone highlight cut-ins. During the week, Molly serves as a team reporter from practice and covers events around the community.
Previously, Molly was the sideline reporter for the Philadelphia 76ers on NBC Sports Philadelphia for seven seasons. She joined the network in April 2012 and immediately picked up NBA playoff experience as the sideline reporter for the final month of the regular season and the Eastern Conference playoffs. Other assignments for NBC Sports Philadelphia included reporting for Eagles Pregame Live, Eagles Postgame Live, SportsNet Central, Philly Sports Talk and for sister station NBC10 News.
Molly joined Turner Sports as a reporter for TNT and NBA TV during the 2014 Playoffs. In this role, Molly worked the sidelines in the first round with reports from practice, pregame, in-game and postgame, as well as exclusive sit-down interviews along the way.
Molly also worked for ESPN as a sideline reporter for The Basketball Tournament.
During her second NBA offseason in 2013, Molly signed with Top Rank Boxing as a ringside reporter during fights as well as a correspondent and host. That fall, Molly also returned to the sports where her career began, joining CBS Sports Network as a college football and college basketball sideline reporter.
It all started on the sideline with the MountainWest Sports Network (The Mtn.) which was a member of the NBC Sports Regional Networks. During her four years with The Mtn., she cut her teeth working primarily as a college football sideline reporter and was also the lone sideline reporter for men's and women's basketball on the nationwide network. Utilizing her experience as a competitive swimmer for more than a decade, she also served as the swimming color analyst for all studio shows. Molly covered a total of 12 college sports for The Mtn. with a focus on pregame and postgame coverage as well as in-depth feature stories for the network's daily sportscast, and she also co-hosted special programming.
Molly's work covering college sports could occasionally be seen on various other networks, including CBS Sports Network and NBC Sports Network (formerly VERSUS) which were league partners with The Mtn. She also hosted ESPN Road Trip to the Big Dance for a three-part series. In addition, as one of the top swimming analysts on television, Big Ten Network called upon Molly to lead its swimming coverage for three seasons.
In a city where sports and entertainment are uniquely intertwined, Molly's first on-air job was in her hometown as a Las Vegas-based entertainment reporter and producer for a syndicated news segment that aired on newscasts across the country. A year later, she landed her own half-hour community lifestyle television show on Las Vegas' ABC affiliate where she served as both the program’s host and associate producer. Molly’s knowledge of the Entertainment Capital of the World led her to the national stage as a field reporter and producer for a number of different networks and publications, including E! News and The Daily 10 on E! Entertainment Television as well as Life & Style Weekly magazine. It was during this time that she was approached by publishers to author the first insider's book about Las Vegas written specifically for women, Las Vegas Little Red Book: A Girl's Guide to the Perfect Vegas Getaway. After three years of covering entertainment news right out of college, Molly eagerly returned to her athletic roots.
A graduate of The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Molly is a former ACC champion and four-time NCAA qualifier in the 1650 freestyle for the Tar Heels. She also competed in the 2000 U.S. Olympic Trials for Santa Clara Swim Club.
Molly and her husband live in Philadelphia and celebrated the birth of their daughter in May 2016.
