14. Kathryn Tappen, Host and Reporter, NBC Sports
Growing up and spending all of her career in the Northeast has provided Kathryn really incredible opportunities to cover a multitude of sports, teams, and players. She knew that she wanted to a sports broadcaster from an early age (middle school to be exact) and after playing college sports, she worked hard to get into the business. In this episode, Kathryn and I talk about the NHL's new plan to return to game action, what players and coaches are thinking during this time, and how NBC Sports is planning their broadcast coverage. We dive into the beginning of her career in local news, learning how to take criticism from people you trust, and knowing it's okay to reach the top and still be working on yourself.
