Pam Oliver    

Senior Correspondent & FOX NFL Reporter

Renowned as a trailblazer in the sports media landscape, Oliver long ago established herself as one of the premier sports reporters on network television. Armed with league-wide respect and esteem, her straightforward and open interviewing style consistently produces topical and substantive reports.

Oliver has contributed to FOX Sports’ coverage of eight Super Bowls, including Super Bowl LI in 2017. She was the lead feature reporter on FOX NFL SUNDAY for many years. She served as co-anchor of FSN South’s “Southern Sports Report” from 2000 to 2003. Prior to joining the network, she was an ESPN reporter, gaining football experience covering the NFL Playoffs and NFC Championship Games. In addition to her duties as feature reporter on “NFL Prime Monday,” Oliver covered each Monday Night Football matchup. Additional duties included NCAA Women’s and Men’s College Football and Basketball, the Little League World Series, NBA Finals and coverage of Dream Team II at the 1995 World Championships of Basketball.

In 2016, Oliver worked as a Correspondent for “60 Minutes Sports,” contributing several features to the program. In 2014, she served as moderator for President Barack Obama’s Healthy Kids and Safe Sports Concussion Summit at the White House.

In 2019, Atlanta Women in Sports awarded Oliver a Lifetime Achievement Award, and in 2018, she was honored with a Gracie Award by the Alliance for Women in Media. In 2008, WISE (Women In Sports and Events) honored Oliver with one of its “Women of the Year” designations.

Oliver worked as a news reporter to begin her broadcasting career, working as a community affairs reporter for public television. She also worked at KHOU in Houston as a sports reporter and anchor for one year. Before moving to KHOU, she served as a news reporter before eventually moving to sports at WTVT in Tampa, Fla. Oliver cut her broadcasting teeth at WIVB in Buffalo, N.Y., WAAY in Huntsville, Ala., WALB in Albany, Ga., and WFSU in Tallahassee, Fla.

A graduate of Florida A&M University. Oliver earned her degree in broadcast journalism. As an undergraduate, she was an Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW) track and field All-American in the 400 meters and mile relay. As a member of the mile-relay team, Oliver held the distinction of participating on the first women’s team from Florida A&M to win a national championship (AIAW). She was inducted into the Florida A&M Sports Hall of Fame in 1996 for her individual accomplishments in the sport and again in 2016 when FAMU’s women’s mile relay team was recognized.

Oliver is a board member and event host with the Trey Whitfield Foundation, an organization that awards scholarships to economically disadvantaged inner-city children to help them pursue prep school educations and later attend college.

An avid reader and interior design enthusiast, Oliver has worked as a volunteer for adult literacy. She is a dog lover who has adopted several (six to-date) rescue and shelter dogs over the years.
