Tara Sullivan

Tara Sullivan (Sportswriter.  Born, New York, NY, June 20, 1968.)  In less than a decade, Tara Pauline Sullivan rose from a writer covering high school sports to the beat writer following the Football Giants.  Sullivan joined Newsday in 1993, handling the school beat, and moved in the middle of the following year to the Daily News.  There, she started with high school sports but also began covering women’s basketball.  In 1996, Sullivan switched to The Record (Hackensack, N.J.) as a sports enterprise and feature writer.  She subsequently not only became the main lead writer on the Giants but also handled colleges and some major league baseball.
