$500,000 – Molly Qerim
Molly Qerim first rose to prominence when she took over as the moderator for ESPN’s First Take. The anchor works alongside a few others we will get to later, and has helped push the show to become one of the highest-rated sports talk shows on TV.
Before landing the ESPN gig, Qerim hosted NFL AM and NFL Fantasy Live on NFL Network. She’s covered all the major sporting events like the NBA Draft and the Super Bowl during her time in the sports world.
