Suzy Kolber has reached a new long-term extension to remain with ESPN. During the upcoming NFL season, her role will expand as part of her new deal.
Kolber, who joined ESPN in 1993, has been a sideline reporter on Sunday Night Football and Monday Night Football, as well as a studio host. This season, she becomes the new full-time host of ESPN’s Monday Night Countdown pregame show. The past year and a half, Kolber covered a majority of the games as her close friend and colleague Stuart Scott courageously battled cancer. Kolber will travel to the site of each week’s MNF game where she will appear alongside Trent Dilfer, Ray Lewis and Steve Young.
Kolber will continue to host weekday editions of ESPN’s NFL Insiders, the daily pro football show featuring veteran reporters and league insiders, including Adam Schefter, Chris Mortensen and Bill Polian. She will also continue to be part of ESPN’s annual NFL Draft and Super Bowl week coverage.
“ESPN has felt like family since I joined the company in 1993 so I am thrilled to continue my career here,” said Kolber. “We will have Stuart in our hearts as we go forward, striving – as always – to raise the bar on how we educate and entertain our NFL audience.”
