Katie Nolan on ESPN tenure: Good experience, but they didn’t now how to use me

one. Jimmy, what do you want me to do? Do you want me to give a stock answer? OF COURSE not. Even the day they called, and they were like, ‘We have an idea; we want you to do this,’ I was like, ‘Yeah, OK, no. It’s a big no for me.”

That was Katie Nolan on a new episode of the YES Media Podcast that dropped Thursday morning when I asked her whether she ever expected to be calling MLB games.

But that’s exactly what Nolan is doing these days, working the late game on Apple TV+’s Friday night package as part of a three-person booth that includes Stephen Nelson and Hunter Pence.

Nolan talked about what the experience has been like for her, what Apple is trying to accomplish with its broadcasts, how she prepares for the games and reveals what happened during her first game when she stayed silent for multiple innings.
