Molly Sullivan is a veteran sports broadcaster who joined the 8 Sports Now team as a reporter prior to the Raiders inaugural season in Las Vegas.
Now in her 14th year as a sports reporter, Molly credits her internship at KLAS-TV as setting the foundation for her career.
Molly has worked as a sideline reporter for national game broadcasts on NFL Network, along with CBS Sports Network, NBA TV, TNT, ESPN and regionally for NBC Sports.
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 with the highlight being her transition to the NFL in the summer of 2018. Earning the trust and respect of viewers, players, coaches, front office and league officials, along with others connected to the teams she covers, Molly has proven to tell the story with a professional and authentic approach.
Prior to the 2019 college football season, Molly joined the NFL Network as a sideline reporter for Conference USA games.
For seven seasons, Molly was the sideline reporter for the 76ers on NBC Sports Philadelphia. Molly was also a reporter and host for the Philadelphia Eagles for two seasons where she covered every practice as the team reporter, hosted a daily news show, and conducted exclusive sit-down interviews with players for gameday programming.
Molly cut her teeth on the sideline in Las Vegas with the MountainWest Sports Network (The Mtn.) which was a member of the Comcast/NBC Sports Regional Networks. During her three and a half years with The Mtn., she worked primarily as a college football sideline reporter and was also the lone sideline reporter for men’s and women’s basketball. Molly has also worked as a ringside reporter for Top Rank Boxing, co-hosted ESPN Road Trip from Las Vegas, and served as the lead swimming analyst on Big Ten Network.
In a city where sports and entertainment are uniquely intertwined, Molly landed her first on-air job in her hometown of Las Vegas as an entertainment reporter and producer for a syndicated weekly segment that aired on newscasts across the country. Molly went on to host and produce her own weekly half-hour community lifestyle television show while co-authoring and publishing a book about Las Vegas. Molly was then picked up as a field producer for national television networks and an entertainment reporter for national publications before hosting and producing her own daily half-hour local show. After three years of covering entertainment news straight out of college, Molly eagerly returned to her athletic roots with a new energy.
Molly’s first job in television was as a production assistant for a news affiliate in Las Vegas where she contributed to the evening newscasts. During that time, Molly worked a second shift as a publicist for various companies and organizations as she learned the art of storytelling.
A graduate of the University of North Carolina, 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.
