Combining comedy and sports alongside TV shows without looking like a psycho-clown might probably feel like a bullfight, but Katie Nolan certainly knows how to fight her way through. This ability has led the American sports presenter to earn a place among the well-placed stars of Hollywood.
But just in case you don’t really know her, Katie is famous for hosting the weekly Fox Sport 1 series “Garbage Time with Katie Nolan”, which won an Emmy Award in 2016. She has also starred in Crowd Goes Wild and has been a panelist on the Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore. She currently works for ESPN, where she created a podcast called “Sports? With Katie Nolan”. Here you can find more information about Katie Nolan, including her life as a comedian, her boyfriend or husband, and her family.
Katie Nolan: Bio
Nolan was born on January 28, 1987, in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, to American parents. However, her family information has not been disclosed to the media or the general public. Her nationality is American and she is of North American descent. The actress has a sister and an older brother Kelvin Nolan. She spent her childhood and most of her adult life in Boston.
She graduated from Framingham High School in Farmington, Massachusetts, and also earned a degree in Public Relations from Hofstra University.
Katie Nolan Career
Katie’s first job was bartending at the White House Tavern in Boston. Challenged by her inability to find a suitable job for herself, the actress had the idea to create her personal blog, titled “Bitches Can’t Hang,” which focuses on pop culture and news. Her content attracted a lot of fans, and it wasn’t long before Yardbreaker, part of Fox Sport, took notice of her and hired her in 2011 to produce and host her YouTube series entitled “Guyism Speed Round”. The series was a five-minute show that presented the sports news of the day in a sarcastic and funny way. During this time she was also the correspondent for G4’s Attack of the Show and also hosted it.
In 2013, her creativity in writing jokes that lightened up the show gave her a greater chance in Fox Sport 1 as a correspondent for “Crowd Goes Wild”, a sports and entertainment talk show hosted by Regis Philbin. As expected, she was sensational at wowing the audience. She also began hosting “No Filter”, a sports and pop culture comedy show on her YouTube channel, together with Katie Nolan. Similarly, the show received countless viewers and gained fans worldwide.
Nolan’s popularity continued to grow as she hosted the weekly series “Garbage Time” with Katie Nolan. The series’ premiere was a huge success, winning the Sports Emmy Award for Outstanding Social Television Experiences on May 10, 2016. This is due to Nolan’s way of spicing up sports facts with hilarious highlights that impress the audience.
Charlie Dixon, Vice President of Fox Sport 1, expressed his deepest gratitude for the success they enjoyed with Nolan as host and looked forward to greater heights with her. But Nolan left Fox Sport when their promises were not kept.
ESPN announced that it had hired Katie Nolan to perform on various platforms in various projects. Although the station didn’t go into detail about Nolan’s role, saying that “she will have a prominent digital presence while appearing throughout the ESPN studio’s programming,” whatever that means, Nolan approached the show with a new perspective, a good sense of humor and hard work. Nolan’s fanatical love of sports is evident not only in the way she presents but also in her support for some teams. You often see them cheering on teams.
In addition to sports, Katie has also been involved in other work. She was also cast in an episode of the Comedy Central program “Drunk History”. Another example is her collaboration with United Airlines in 2015 for a new web-based video series called “Big Mental Birds” that highlights different facets of United Airlines.
Husband Or Boyfriend, Family Life As A Comedian
Nolan’s love life had always remained hidden from the media. She has treated her private life discreetly and has never publicly referred to anyone as her boyfriend or husband. In this respect, it is not possible to say with certainty whether she is married or has an intimate relationship. But there were rumors that she was going out with American actor Kevin Connolly in 2012 when they flirted on Twitter. It turned out, however, that it was a friendly flirt without conditions. Katie also implied in her 2015 statement in an interview that she was in a long-distance relationship and that they only spoke to each other twice a week. The following year, she tweeted that her boyfriend was angry with her because of the 2014 World Cup at the New York restaurant Zum Schneider, but said nothing more about whether or not the unknown man had broken up with her.
Well, anyway, the two-meter seven-centimeter tall beauty, who weighs 62 kg and is 39-26-37 centimeters tall, will certainly secure admirers with her looks and will find an admirer when she is ready to get one.
