Julie Moran joined Entertainment Tonight in 1994 as the New York anchor and correspondent. In 1995, she relocated to Los Angeles to become ET's weekend co-host, and was named one of People magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People that same year. Aside from her duties for ET, Julie Moran recently co-hosted the 1998 Miss Universe Pageant.
Prior to joining Entertainment Tonight, Moran anchored the Emmy Award-winning ABC's Wide World of Sports. She was the first woman to host the show in its 35-year-history and only the third host ever of the top-rated weekly program, following legendary sportscasters Jim McKay and Frank Gifford.
Born in Thomasville, GA, Moran won the title of America's Junior Miss in 1980, then juggled pageant responsibilities along with her studies at the University of Georgia.
During a student internship at the CBS affiliate WCTV-TV in Tallahassee, FL, she contributed reports for UGA football games. Upon graduating magna cum laude with a journalism degree, Moran landed her first reporting job in Los Angeles for ESPN's Sports Focus with basketball legend Julius Erving.
For the next three years, celebrity speaker Julie Moran co-hosted Movie Time, the channel that eventually evolved into E! Entertainment Television, with Greg Kinnear. Afterward, she moved to New York to co-host NBC Sports' popular weekly magazine, NBA Inside Stuff. A year later, ABC Sports hired Moran, assigning her to cover such events as the 1991 Pan American Games from Havana, Cuba, the National Figure Skating Championships and the World Track and Field Championships, and handling Wide World's coverage of the World Gymnastics Championship. For two years, she teamed with Brent Mussburger as a sideline reporter for the network's college football and basketball games.
When Moran was hired by Entertainment Tonight in 1994, she initially divided her time between ET and ABC's Wide World of Sports. At ET, she has continued to put her sports reporting expertise to good use, heading the show's first full-time Olympic coverage at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, as well as other athletic events.
Moran and her husband, actor Rob Moran, live in Los Angeles.
