Who is reporter Molly McGrath?
Born Molly Anne McGrath on the 6th of June 1989, in San Francisco, California USA, Molly is a 28-year-old Caucasian sportscaster and studio host, perhaps best known for her screen time as a three-year-long FOX Sports sportscaster, as well as an ESPN sportscaster for a year and a half. She has had a few other contracts with various media companies, too, being active in the sometimes lucrative reporting business since 2011.
Early Life and Education
Molly was raised in San Francisco by her parents Deborah and Michael McGrath. As for her siblings, the exact count is unknown, but it is public knowledge that she does have a brother named Patrick, who played college football at Princeton University. While there isn’t much information about her early youth, it is a fact that she attended St. Ignatius College Preparatory, and matriculated in 2007. She then enrolled at Boston College, from where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in communication and broadcast journalism in 2011. During her college years, Molly wasn’t only a devout student, but also very physically active, becoming a cheerleader, and soon after the captain of the cheerleading team, remaining in the position for four years until graduation. Every single year, she received the Athletic Director’s Award for Academic Excellence, due to her engagement in both mental and physical activities. It seems that Molly developed an early interest in her profession, since she interviewed various coaches and athletes for the college website BCEagles.com. Thereby, she effectively earned her first professional experience before even graduating.
Molly began her career by signing up for an internship at NBC Sports and New England Sports Network immediately after she graduated. She eventually became a production assistant at ESPN in Bristol, Connecticut – a position she kept for eight months. In the same year, she also became a web reporter and in-arena host at Boston Celtics basketball games, and had the duty of relaying live in-arena segments to the spectators whenever the Celtics played, as well as reporting half-time updates and performing player interviews. In January 2012, Molly gained a promotion and became the official host of Celtics Now for Comcast Sports Net New England. It’s possible that this is the springboard she needed to improve her career, since after a year and a half of working for Comcast, she eventually made it into the eye of a Fox Sports executive, who apparently recognized her talent as he messaged her on Facebook and offered her a job. At some point in the summer of 2013, Molly became an update anchor of Fox Sports 1 in Los Angeles, then in 2014 came another promotion, as the co-host of daily highlights with Mike Hill. Ultimately, at some point in 2016 she crossed over to ESPN as a sideline reporter and host, where she remains today.

Being someone that is generally considered attractive, Molly is expected by the audience to have a tumultuous love life. However, it doesn’t look like she has devoted much time to this part of her life, as she has so far dated only two guys, to the public’s knowledge at least, and only one is confirmed. According to various rumors, based on the fact that they were seen together at the ESPY 2014 carpet, and that they have another picture together, Molly is thought to have dated the NHL player Alec Martinez, but unconfirmed by either party. However, Molly is now actually engaged to a certain Max Dorsch, according to her Instagram feed, where one of their pictures shows her wearing an engagement ring. The man in question is said to be a financier and marketer who deals with numerous real-estate firms. He proposed to Molly in 2017, but the exact date of their wedding is not available to the media as of yet.
What is Molly McGrath’s Net Worth?
Have you ever wondered how rich Molly McGrath is, as of early 2018? According to various authoritative sources, it has been estimated that the current total of Molly’s accumulated wealth is close to $1 million, largely aided by her numerous successes in the news broadcasting industry, while the greatest contribution to this value must’ve come from her long-term presence on FOX and ESPN. As her career continues to develop, the said amount can be expected to increase.
Concerning the physical attributes of the sportscaster and co-host, her vital statistics are said to be 33-25-35, while various sources repute her height to be at 5ft 5ins (1.65m), and her weight 143lbs (65kg). Her hair is bright blond and her eyes are brown, while her foot size remains unknown.
Social Media Presence
Due to the major influence of social networks, it is nowadays a regular thing for active sportscasters and co-hosts to nourish a close and active relationship with their fans, for the sake of increasing the popularity of the channels they’re working for, and thus their own net worth. It looks like Molly herself is quite an active subscriber of this trend, as she can be considered ubiquitous on most social media networks. Her Facebook page currently enjoys over 24,000 followers, while her Twitter account boasts a significantly higher 124,000 followers, and her Instagram page is actively followed by more 58,000 fans at this time.
