Taryn Hatcher is a sports reporter and anchor who was born on December 24, 1992, in Delran, New Jersey, USA. She is best known for her work with NBC Sports Philadelphia. She is frequently seen as a sideline reporter, covering numerous Philadelphia professional sports teams such as the Sixers, Phillies, Eagles, and Flyers.
Taryn Hatcher’s net worth is predicted to be $500,000 as of early 2020, owing to a successful career in sports journalism. Because of her fame in the world of sports broadcasting, she has worked with various companies and been featured in local newspapers.
Taryn acquired a deep interest in sports from a young age, owing mostly to her family’s support of all Philadelphia teams, as South Jersey is quite close to where most Philadelphia games are hosted. She attended sporting activities, attended live events, and watched sports at home. During this period, she became interested in the job of sportswriters and aspired to a similar career. As her brother attended the Naval Academy, she developed an interest in Army and Navy games.
Taryn Hatcher enrolled at Rutgers University after graduating from high school to pursue a degree in broadcast journalism. The university is one of the country’s oldest and largest higher education institutions, and it was one of the first universities to be established during colonization. She was a member of the university’s NCAA Division III soccer team while there. She was a center-midfielder and a central defender, but after sustaining a knee injury, she decided to retire.
Hatcher had her first job as a server while in college at the restaurant Chickie’s and Pete’s, where she earned extra money in addition to her stipend.
She also interned at iHeartRadio, where she managed the station’s social media platforms and assisted with production. The radio platform is well-known for its robust internet presence as well as its extensive reach across the United States. The service provides a variety of podcasts, on-demand music, a recommender system, and a variety of other features.
Taryn Hatcher also interned at NBC Sports Philadelphia in a similar capacity, largely in the background as part of the production. After completing her degree, she was offered a position with Hawaii News Now.
This meant she had to shift to a more tropical state, as HNN serves the state of Hawaii and is situated in Honolulu, the state’s capital. During her stay there, she covered both local and international news. She liked the vibe and the state’s proximity to beaches and other tropical retreats, but she wanted to achieve her childhood ambition of being immersed in sports teams.
Taryn was hired by NBC Sports Philadelphia as a reporter and host for their various shows in 2018. She had gotten the job easily because of her previous internship and her love of Philadelphia sports teams.
As part of her employment, she began covering the numerous teams from the area that compete in major sports leagues. The Philadelphia Flyers of the National Hockey League (NHL), the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League (NFL), the Philadelphia 76ers of the National Basketball Association (NBA), and the Philadelphia Phillies of Major League Baseball are among them (MLB).
She’s done a lot of sideline reporting since joining the firm, often participating in games for coverage and conducting interviews with many of the area’s professional athletes and personnel.
Aside from sports teams, she has occasionally covered other events for NBC, and as her fame grew, she was able to pursue a variety of other options, including stories in local publications. “Philadelphia Style” highlighted her in an article about some of her favorite Philadelphia locales. She has also been abroad on occasion.
Taryn is known to be in a relationship with Austen Freeborn. He formerly worked as an auditor for Bank of America. They’ve been dating for a few years, and her social media shows them together during major events like holidays.
Even when she isn’t working as a reporter, she enjoys watching her favorite Philadelphia sports teams in her spare time. She mentions that the Eagles winning the Super Bowl was a bittersweet moment for her because she was in Hawaii at the time and couldn’t get home. She did, however, celebrate her home team’s victory over the New England Patriots, a powerhouse.
Taryn is also a supporter of Philadelphia cuisine, frequently returning to her former job, Chickie and Petes.
She also likes soft pretzels, albeit the Philadelphia flavor is her favorite. While she no longer participates in sports, she makes it a habit to go to the gym on a regular basis and highlights the value of physically and intellectually challenging yourself. Her job in front of the camera also requires her to make a concerted effort to look her best.
Taryn is also a major fan of art and enjoys visiting the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Impressionist works, famed for their detail and use of light, are among her favorites.
She is also a huge eater who enjoys keeping up with the newest fashion trends. In her spare time, she can be seen in chic boutiques or at wine-tasting events.
