Dolan runs her own weekly show called The EKD Show.

ESPN has agreed to a multi-year contract renewal with sports betting analyst Erin Dolan. 

Dolan is now Bristol-based with regular studio appearances across Sunday NFL Countdown, Daily Wager, SportsCenter and more.

As part of her deal, Dolan will be based in Bristol, Connecticut with regular in-studio appearances on ESPN’s sports betting news and information program, Daily Wager.

Dolan signed with ESPN in December 2021 will continue to create betting-specific content on YouTube, including her own weekly show, The EKD Show. Furthermore, she will also be making weekly appearances on Sunday NFL Countdown.

Prior to ESPN, Dolan worked on-air at FanDuel and PointsBet sportsbooks, creating sports betting content across their social media channels. Additionally, she co-hosted a weekly YouTube and Twitch show called, Girls Who Bet.

Before entering the sports betting world, Dolan was a sports reporter at PHL17 in Philadelphia and a sideline reporter for the Philadelphia Wings. 

Scott Clark, VP, Fantasy & Betting Content at ESPN, stated, “Erin has been important to our growth in the sports betting space, and brings a betting lens to our ESPN programming that we know fans expect from us. It’s great to now have her in Bristol contributing daily to our growing sports betting content efforts.”

Dolan commented, “It’s been amazing to watch ESPN’s sports betting content grow into what it is today. When I was hired in 2021, we were just scratching the surface. We’ve evolved quite a bit since then and I can’t wait to be part of this next phase as we enter into football season.”
