Taft got her start in college football reporting in 2014, as part of FS1's game coverage.[10] In 2017, Taft was elevated to lead college football sideline reporter, alongside play-by-play commentator Gus Johnson and analyst Joel Klatt.[11][12] Her role at FS1 expanded considerably, as she has additionally covered the NFL, MLB, and the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.[5]

In 2018, she served as a fill-in host and moderator on various FS1 programs.[10] That summer, it was announced that Taft would be succeeding Joy Taylor as the moderator of Skip and Shannon: Undisputed, hosted by Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe.[5][13] Shortly after, on September 5, FS1 debuted CFB: Inside Slant, a weekly college football show hosted by Taft.[13] Despite taking on these new positions at FS1, she retained her college football sideline reporting duties for the 2018 season.[13] In 2020, she was a sideline reporter for Fox Sports' coverage of XFL games.[14] In 2022, Taft signed an extension at Fox Sports but left Skip and Shannon: Undisputed after going on maternity leave in February.[15] Taft also got into a verbal dispute on air with Skip Bayless after Bayless made critical comments about Dallas Cowboys' coach Mike McCarthy based on his body weight and appearance.[16]
