Fox Sports golf analyst Holly Sonders will make her debut as an NFL sideline reporter during this Sunday’s game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Houston Texans.
The 1 p.m. game from NRG Field in Houston is scheduled to air in seven markets in Florida and Texas (Ft. Myers, Gainesville, Houston, Orlando, Panama City, Tallahassee, Tampa), but will only reach about 5 percent of the nation’s television viewership. Sonders will work with Kenny Albert and Daryl Johnston.
Sonders left Golf Channel at the end of 2014 and signed a deal with Fox Sports, part of which included the opportunity to work NFL games. Since the beginning of 2015 she has served a variety of roles in Fox Sports’ golf coverage of USGA events. On Fox Sports’ press site Sonders is listed as a “rotating analyst” for 2015 NFL coverage.
