Emmy-winning host and opinionist Katie Nolan joined ESPN in October 2017, bringing her sharp, irreverent and knowledgeable voice on the worlds of sports, culture and beyond. In addition to hosting her own digital series and currently co-hosting SportsCenter on Snapchat, Nolan’s original podcast will debut in January 2018. She regularly lends her perspective to ESPN studio shows and will continue to appear across multiple digital platforms.
Prior to her role at ESPN, Nolan hosted Fox Sports 1’s Garbage Time with Katie Nolan, which won a Sports Emmy for Outstanding Social TV Experience. Nolan joined Fox Sports 1 in 2013 as a digital correspondent for the sports and pop culture show Crowd Goes Wild. She produced and hosted her own FoxSports.com digital show, No Filter, covering daily sports topics. One of these videos, an unvarnished commentary on media culpability in the NFL’s handling of the Ray Rice domestic violence incident, earned her widespread praise and cemented the importance of her voice in sports media.
Nolan began her media career in Boston, starting her own blog while bartending before going on to work for Guyism, where she wrote, produced and hosted The Guyism Speed Round, a daily video series that put an unusual and humorous spin on the day’s happenings.
