Holly Sonders is done with Golf Channel, according to a Golfweek report. The now former "Morning Drive" co-host is reportedly moving to Fox Sports to be a part of their golf coverage, as well as a sideline reporter for NFL games.

Sonders is likely to become part of a team Fox is putting together so it can air the U.S. Open and other USGA championships starting next year as part of a 12-year contract. Sonders was unable to reach an extension with Golf Channel, making her last day with the company July 10.

The former Michigan St. golfer, whose real name is Holly Niederkohr, joined Golf Channel in 2011 from a TV station in Arkansas to be the news-desk reporter for the network's foray into live morning programming. She became an instant hit, later becoming a co-host on the instructional show "School of Golf" with Martin Hall and hosting "Playing Lessons With the Pros."
