King of Prussia’s Lisa Salters spent 13 years working in television news before deciding to transition to sports and is now the sideline reporter for ESPN’s Monday Night Football and the NBA, writes Dan Levy for Billy Penn.

The Montco native was preparing for The Eagles game on Monday during her interview with Billy Penn, where she talked about her work at the sideline and returning home for Thanksgiving.

“What I like about now is that I have a set schedule,” she said. “I’ve known since May what my fall is going to look like, so I can plan my childcare and stuff like that.”

However, while getting out in the field is fun, it requires detailed preparation.

“You have to over-prepare every week,” adding that it has become significantly easier the longer she has been doing it.

For Thanksgiving, Salters will visit her parent’s house for dinner, before heading to Philly on Friday.

“I’ll have gotten all my work done already, so Friday I’ll probably go to the mall like everybody else.”
