FAMU Welcomes Fox Sports Reporter, Alumna Pam Oliver

FOX sports reporter, former anchor Pam Oliver addresses FAMU's Board of Trustees.

It was an emotional homecoming for Florida A&M alumna and sports anchor Pam Oliver. She’s set to keynote FAMU’s Summer graduation ceremony this weekend.

Board of Trustees Chairman Rufus Montgomery calls Oliver a “Super Rattler” and she spoke to the board briefly Thursday shortly after a tour of the campus.

“It’s just beautiful. I appreciate everything everyone has been doing…I am so proud to be from Florida A&M…so proud," she said.

Oliver, a graduate of FAMU’s School of Journalism and Graphic Communication, has credited the school with helping her get her start in journalism. She’s the former FOX NFL anchorwoman and sideline reporter. Oliver recently signed a two-year contract extension with FOX.
