NBC SPORTS PHILADELPHIA NAMES TARYN HATCHER MULTI-PLATFORM REPORTER AND HOST
SOUTH JERSEY NATIVE RETURNS TO HER ROOTS
Philadelphia, PA (JUNE 28, 2018) – NBC Sports Philadelphia – home of the Authentic Fan – announced today that Taryn Hatcher, a South Jersey native, has joined the network as a multi-platform host and reporter covering the Eagles, Flyers, Sixers and Phillies. She will join the network on July 23.
“We are thrilled to welcome Taryn back home,” said NBC Sports Philadelphia Vice President of Content, Michelle Murray. “Taryn’s knowledge and passion for Philly sports, combined with her ability to create content for multiple platforms, is a valuable skill that will allow her to make an immediate connection with fans.”
“It feels incredible to join the team at NBC Sports Philadelphia,” said Hatcher. “I grew up watching the Flyers, Eagles, Sixers and Phillies — I fell in love with sports and wanted nothing more than to be a sports reporter. This has been my dream since childhood and I absolutely can’t wait to get started.”
In her new role at NBC Sports Philadelphia, Hatcher will serve as a host and reporter primarily on NBCSportsPhiladelphia.com, and also serve in the same capacity on–air, including filling in on SportsNet Central as needed. A former network intern, she returns home from Hawaii News Now where she was a sports reporter since 2015. She was also a sideline reporter for the Big Ten Network.
Taryn graduated from Rutgers University where she studied Journalism and Mass Media Studies, as well as Political Science. During that time, she also worked for the university radio station as a sports broadcaster, and interned at iHeart Radio in Philly, Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia, and in the sports department for WCBS-TV in New York.
