Tafoya continues to serve as NFL sideline reporter on NBC’s Sunday Night Football, a position she has held since 2011, after more than a decade at ABC/ESPN, where she held a variety of on-air roles, most notably as a reporter for Monday Night Football and ESPN's NFL studio programs. NBC’s Sunday Night Football has been primetime television’s #1 show for the past five TV seasons – a feat accomplished by only three other TV shows since 1950.
Tafoya was a part of NBC’s Rio Olympics coverage and served as a sideline reporter for NBC's coverage of Super Bowl XLVI and Super Bowl XLIX, the most-watched show in U.S. television history with 114.4 million viewers. She previously hosted The Michele Tafoya Show on WCCO News Radio in Minneapolis-St. Paul.
