Andrea Kremer, who the Los Angeles Times has called “the best TV interviewer in the business of covering the NFL,” serves as the sideline and feature reporter for “NBC Sunday Night Football.” Kremer also contributes to the “Football Night in America” studio show, in addition to reporting for NBC at the Olympics and periodically reporting on football for the “Today” show.
TV Guide said Kremer is "among TV's best sports correspondents of either sex," and her work is "distinguished by her eagerness to calmly ask tough questions and her refusal to pursue the same old story."
Kremer is also a correspondent for HBO’s Emmy Award-winning “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel.”
The Emmy Award-winning Kremer was previously ESPN's Los Angeles-based correspondent, providing in-depth reports for “SportsCenter,” “Sunday NFL Countdown” and “Monday Night Countdown,” as well as other studio shows, winning Emmy Awards for her work in 2001 and 2005. Kremer was a correspondent on ESPN's Emmy Award-winning “Outside the Lines” series. Kremer frequently conducted long-form interviews with leading sports personalities including Terrell Owens, Randy Moss, Tom Brady, Ray Lewis, Jerry Rice, Michael Jordan, Phil Jackson and John Daly.
Kremer has moderated roundtable discussions with NFL players and coaches and also served as substitute host for ESPN's one-on-one interview program “Up Close.” She contributed to ESPN Radio, ESPN.com and ESPNEWS. Kremer joined ESPN in April 1989 as a Chicago-based correspondent, serving in that role until moving to Los Angeles in June 1994. She has contributed to ABC News and Sports, including the network's last three Super Bowls. In 2005, Kremer received a PRISM Award for her story on Dexter Manley that “best exemplifies accurate depiction of drug, alcohol and addiction in a television news magazine segment.”
Kremer has worked every Super Bowl since 1985. A versatile reporter, she has covered the NBA Finals and All-Star Game, Major League Baseball's All-Star Game and League Championship Series, college football bowl games, Stanley Cup Playoffs and Finals, NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, U.S. Olympic basketball trials and the PGA Championship. Kremer’s forte is breaking news stories, and she has provided investigative pieces on social issues as they relate to sports, such as sexual assault and domestic violence.
Kremer was cited as "Best Female" sportscaster in P.O.V. Magazine in a September 1997 poll and in 2001 was named one of the "Most Influential" moms in the country by Working Mother Magazine.
Prior to joining ESPN, Kremer worked at NFL Films (1984-89), where she was a producer/director and on-air reporter for the nationally syndicated show “This is the NFL." Kremer received an Emmy nomination in 1986 for writing and editing the critically acclaimed NFL Films special "Autumn Ritual." She also produced several one-hour specials including the "All-Pro Dream Team," "All the Best," and "Gift of Grab." While at NFL Films, Kremer served as a contributing reporter to the Philadelphia Eagles Pre-Game Show on WIP-AM in Philadelphia.
Before joining NFL Films, Kremer was sports editor of the Main Line Chronicle in Ardmore, Pa., the state's largest weekly newspaper, from 1982-84.
A Philadelphia native, Kremer graduated cum laude with a bachelor of arts degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1980. She is married with one son.
