Molly Solomon    

Executive Producer and President, NBC Olympics Production; Executive Producer, Golf Channel

Molly Solomon is the executive vice president of content & executive producer, Golf Channel. In her role, Solomon oversees all aspects of production on Golf Channel, including tournament coverage, news, original productions, operations, digital and social media content.

Becoming the first woman to serve as an executive producer for a sports cable network upon joining Golf Channel in 2012, the network – under Solomon’s leadership – has scored its highest-rated years in the network’s 23-year history, according to data released by The Nielsen Company. In 2016 and 2017, Golf Channel averaged more than 100,000 viewers (second and third most-watched years ever, respectively), the first time the network accomplished the feat in consecutive years dating back to its inception in 1995.

Prior to her role at Golf Channel, Solomon served as the coordinating producer for NBC Olympics and was involved in every facet of production and planning, including program development, operational planning and the hiring and assigning of on-air talent and production staff for numerous Olympic Games.

Solomon began her NBC career in 1990 and was one of two Olympic researchers for NBC’s Emmy Award-winning coverage of the Barcelona Games in 1992. In that role, she compiled event, biographical and historical information on virtually every competitor and country involved in the Barcelona Games, resulting in an eight-volume manual. She then served as a writer and information assistant to Bob Costas during NBC’s primetime coverage in Barcelona.

A Phi Beta Kappa member, Solomon graduated magna cum laude from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service in 1990, with a B.S. in international politics. Solomon and her husband Geoff Russell reside in Orlando with their triplets Jonathan, Alexandra and Madeleine.
