THIS IS EPISODE 161 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Samantha Ponder is the host of “Sunday NFL Countdown” on ESPN during the football season. She began her career at ESPN with the Longhorn Network in 2011. Prior to her current role, she had been a staple as a reporter on ESPN’s “College Gameday” and college football broadcasts.
In 2012, she married former NFL QB Christian Ponder, and since then has given birth to three children, two girls and a boy.
On Part 1 of a two-part conversation, we talk to Sam about balancing motherhood with her career, making the transition from “College Gameday” to “Sunday NFL Countdown,” growing up with parents who are missionaries, and speaking out on issues as her platform has evolved over the years.
