When you fire up a UFC fight card on a Saturday night, you’re likely to see Karyn Bryant anchoring the Fox Sports desk, and Megan Olivi conducting interviews with fighters backstage. The two women keep tremendously busy schedules working for the UFC, and from the sounds of it, they’re both about to get even busier.
According to a report from MMAjunkie, Megan Olivi and Karyn Bryant will soon begin working as reporters for NFL broadcasts as well.
Karyn Bryant is expected to make her NFL coverage debut this Sunday, when the Carolina Panthers take on the Falcons in Atlanta.
“I am beyond excited to join the NFL on FOX team,” Bryant said in a statement. “My dad used to coach Pop Warner (football), and I’ve loved the game since the days I stood on the sidelines with him as a kid. I am from New England, so I know a few things about great football. I’m looking forward to getting out from behind the anchor desk and onto the gridiron.”
Megan Olivi’s debut as an NFL reporter will occur on September 23 when the Houston Texans take on the NY Giants.
“I’m thrilled to be working on the NFL sidelines this season,” Megan Olivi said. “It’s an exciting new opportunity in my sports reporting career. As a lifelong football fan, I’m honored to have the chance to be a part of the FOX NFL broadcast team.”
