Who is Melanie Collins?

Melanie Collins, 35, received her Bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism from Pennsylvania State University and attended the New York Institute of Art and Design to receive a second degree in interior design.

She has had a prolific career covering Major League Baseball for the MLB website, the NBA for NBA-TV, and working for Yahoo! Sports where she covered sports events worldwide.

Her assignments have included the Winter Olympics, FIFA World Cup, Super Bowl, NCAA Football National Championship, the NFL Draft, NBA Finals, and the World Series.

CBS Sports hired Collins in 2014 to cover College Football and College Basketball before promoting her to sideline sports reporter for the NFL.

What has Melanie Collins said about her job?

Collins has worked for CBS since 2014 and she has said she is immensely grateful for the opportunities she has received.

“It’s not lost on me how lucky I am to call this my job,” Collins said, in response to a question from one of her Instagram followers.

In another post on December 6, 2021, she expressed her excitement when she reported on the Seattle Seahawks versus the San Francisco 49ers.

“One of the most wild games I’ve ever covered! There’s nothing quite like being on the field in Seattle. What an atmosphere!” she said.

Most recently, Collins shared a post in which she said she can’t believe it is her fourth season as the CBS sideline sports reporter for the NFL.

“I couldn’t be more grateful for this job, for my crew, who is truly my family away from home, my health this season, and for the players, coaches, and teams who are so gracious with their time and make my job so much fun. Thank you to all of you who tuned in to our broadcasts this season.”

What is Melanie Collins’ advice to aspiring sports reporters?

Earlier this month, Collins made an “Ask Me Anything” post on her Instagram story, inspiring her followers to ask how to break into the industry.

“I would love to be a sports broadcaster, so what would be your best piece of advice?” one person asked.

Collins advised anyone who wants to pursue sports broadcasting to pursue internships and on-camera classes to gain experience and impressed the importance of putting together a newsreel after graduation.

A sports newsreel will show potential employers that you are serious about the position and will show them your reporting style and experience.

In her response, Collins said she was reposting her previous advice because it “still holds true.” It’s important, she said, to “always be the most prepared person in the room,” and “say yes to anything that will get you experience.”

The industry is always changing and moving in different directions and she advised to “be open-minded” about the role or the title you take on.

“Don’t have your career path set in stone,” she said. “I promise it won’t work out the way you think! But most of the time it works out better.”
