Kathryn Tappen Joins NBC Sports Group

NBC Sports Group has added Kathryn Tappen to its team. Tappen will work with NHL Live, Football Night in America, Notre Dame Football and various other studio programs. She will also be an integral part of the NBC Sports Super Bowl and Olympic coverage. 

Tappen’s new responsibilities will not force her to leave her current post at NHL Tonight, where she has been a host since 2011. 

“I’m thrilled to be joining the NBC Sports team and to work on some of the most high-profile events in sports. This opportunity represents the best of both worlds as I can continue to work on hockey, including signature events for NHL Network, while also covering sports that I’ve worked on in the past and have had a passion for since childhood, such as the Olympics, the NFL and college football,” Tappen said in a release.
