100 Influential Black Women in Sports: Media personality Monica McNutt

Sports Illustrated and Empower Onyx are putting the spotlight on the diverse journeys of Black women across sports—from the veteran athletes, to up-and-coming stars, coaches, executives and more—in the series, Elle-evate: 100 Influential Black Women in Sports.

On-air analyst and multimedia sports personality Monica McNutt has a career that seems to have been laser-focused on success. But in reality, she has been flexible about where her professional path would take her.

“I don’t know if I have a goal,” McNutt says. “I think the destination is only half as beautiful as the journey. So I’m open.”

For now, McNutt stays busy with a weekly lineup of TV, radio and digital appearances that could put her in the running as one of the hardest-working women in sports media. Those appearances include doing college basketball commentary as an analyst for EPSN’s ACC Network as well as being a studio analyst for the Knicks on MSG Network.
