How NFL host Sam Ponder gets Up With theSkimm

Sep 18, 2019

The Story

NFL season is back in full swing, which means Sam Ponder is back in front of the camera as host of "Sunday NFL Countdown."

Sounds like a fun job.

We think so. She shared how she starts her day with three kids, and took us to set to see how she prepares for long hours on live TV. Sam also told us the best career advice her mom ever gave her.


She's a busy woman. If she gets seven hours of sleep, it's a touchdown in her house.
