Who Is Tracy Wolfson? CBS Super Bowl 58 Sideline Reporter To Take Center Stage

Tracy Wolfson is one of the most well-known sideline reporters in sports, and this year's Super Bowl in Las Vegas isn't her first rodeo at the big game.

No NFL announcing crew is complete without a sideline reporter, and Tracy Wolfson is one of the top names in the game. The reporter who frequently travels with Jim Nantz and Tony Romo on CBS’s lead team will be ever-present at this year’s Super Bowl in Las Vegas.

This isn’t her first time taking over the sideline at the league’s marquee event of the year.

How Tracy Wolfson Became the Top Sideline Reporter for CBS

Wolfson’s broadcasting experience began at the University of Michigan, where she graduated with a degree in communications.

The first stop of her professional career was Trenton, New Jersey, where she worked as a reporter, sports anchor, and producer for WZBN-TV. She worked at a variety of other stations for several years before joining CBS Sports in 1997 as a researcher.

Though she wasn’t yet working football for the network, she was assigned to major sporting events, including U.S. Open Tennis, the 1997 NCAA Final Four, and the 1998 Winter Olympic Games.

Since then, Wolfson has also worked for Madison Square Garden Network and ESPN, covering a variety of prominent events for the Arena Football League, college football, and U.S. Open Golf.

Since joining CBS, Wolfson’s talents have taken her to cover just about every other major sport one could think of, including auto racing, skiing, ice skating, track and field, and gymnastics.

She has also been a prominent figure in NCAA men’s basketball coverage, having served as CBS’s lead reporter for the Final Four since 2008 and currently serving as the network’s lead reporter for the NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Championship.

On the gridiron, Wolfson served as CBS’s lead SEC college football sideline reporter for 10 years. In 2014, she was announced as the network’s lead NFL sideline reporter, a role in which she’s worked alongside legendary play-by-play announcer Jim Nantz ever since.
