The smiling face of Holly Sonders is a regular appearance for the followers of FOX News. The former golfer who is now a television personality takes care of the sports reporting and also covers the United States Golf Association USGA sports events. Alongside regular golfing events, Holly is also a sideline reporter for NFL. A former golfer herself, Holly’s passion for the game comes from her mother, who was a professional golfer. While she collected several golfing awards during her university days, she has left the playing field in favor of reporting. Today, we take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Holly Sonders.
Holly Sonders wasborn on the 3rd of March 1987 in Marysville, Ohio. Born to optometrist Dan Niederkohr and professional golfer Sandy Niederkohr, it is easy to see where Holly got the passion for the game. Born and raised in Ohio, Holly spent most of her childhood with her brother. She attended the Marysville High School and found her place in the golfing world. She continued golf throughout her college and university years. In her high school years, Holly managed to win all-league and all-district honors for four consecutive years. She later joined the Michigan State University and graduated with a major in Journalism.
A career as a player:
Even though Holly won numerous accolades during her high school years, she later quit golf in favor of journalism. She managed to win the American Junior Golf Association and UCT National championship tournaments as a junior golfer in 2001. The undisputed MVP during her high school years, Holly had a knee surgery when she was 20-years-old. This can be one of the reasons that Holly switched from her career as a player to a journalist.
Finding her place:
Holly began her career as a sports reporter in 2009 with WBNS-10TV in Columbus. She later switched to a golf channel in 2011 and began working as an active member of FOX News since 2014. Holly worked on numerous projects for the news alongside United States Golf Association USGA and National Football Leagues NFL events. She makes an average of USD 65,000 every year from her assignment in the FOX News.
Holly was assigned to the US open for live reporting. Things took a bad turn when she asked the 2015 Championship winner, Jordan Spieth if he had packed another pair of clothes for the Monday play-offs. Following this remark, Fox News cut all their ties with Holly and she resigned in 2016. Her most recent appearance on TV came in the form of Speak For Yourself with Cowherd and Whitlock on 13 August 2018. She was brought in to discuss Tiger Wood’s achievement at the 2018 PGA Championship. In June of 2018, Holly made another mistake during her reporting. During the sectional qualifiers, Holly reported “Head to www.usopen.com, Everything will be there. The entire days of sexual qualifying.” She quickly recognized her blunder and was a good sport about it.
As of 2020, Holy Sanders net worth is estimated to be around $5M.
Searching for Love?
Holly was married to the radio personality Erik Kuselias. The pair got engaged in 2012 and got married in the same year. A low-key relationship meant there are very little details on the couple’s love life. The couple is currently co-parenting their son, Troy Kuselias who was born in 2006. Their divorce was announced on Holly’s Twitter account on the 22nd of August 2017. Fans speculated that the divorce was due to Erik who was often involved with other women even after his marriage.
