About this Episode

On Episode 93, Sam and Jack are joined by NBC's Sideline Reporter for Sunday Night Football, Michele Tafoya. Michele details how she got into journalism and broadcasting, the sacrifices and commitments she's had to make to excel in the industry as well as some of her positions before NBC. Michele gives us a detailed example of what a typical week of preparation for SNF looks like, what her learning experiences as a sideline reporter included, as well as her most rewarding moments in her career thus far. She talks about getting bye weeks for one of the first times, rewatching herself after every broadcast and the most enjoyable moments of working with Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth and why they've been the #1 show on primetime for a decade running.
