Bailey Mosier Begins Latest Role at Golf Channel: Co-Host of Morning Drive

We first met Bailey Mosier back in January of 2011, just after she was hired by the Golf Channel as a content producer for golfchannel.com.

And Bailey's still at GC - but in a much more visible role now. On Tuesday, Jan. 6, 2015, Mosier begins her new role as a host on one of the network's flagship shows, Morning Drive.

How did she go from editing website copy and writing headlines when she started four years ago to being one of the prominent faces of the network? By working - hard - and taking advantage of opportunities. Talent wins out.

Bailey (Twitter: BirdieBaileyGC) spent a couple years in her content role for golfchannel.com. Her first on-camera assignments were web videos reported from the 2012 PGA Show, but her first studio hosting for web segments didn't happen until May 2013. At that point Mosier would fill in on web segments for Win McMurry when Win was unavailable.

Beginning in 2014, Bailey took over the web-hosting duties that had been performed by McMurry following McMurry's departure from Golf Channel - while continuing to write, report and edit web copy, too. Her writing/editing duties included developing the Grill Room blog.

Grill Room soon become the name of a social media-based show, and Bailey became the host of that. She also worked last year as the host of Big Breakdown, the web-exclusive, behind-the-scenes show about the show Big Break Myrtle Beach.

Finally, in August of 2014, Bailey made her first live appearance on the Golf Channel television network. Through the rest of 2014, she did live spots, including covering the Symetra Tour Championship and the Big Break Invitational.

By November of last year, Mosier was ready to audition for the high-profile role as a co-host on Morning Drive. And on Jan. 6, Bailey's steady but not-so-slow rise up the ranks culminates when she takes her seat in front of the Morning Drive cameras.

Meantime, Bailey still produces web content and has other web-hosting duties. She's a dynamo.

She's really the perfect person for a Golf Channel career, coming from both a golf and journalism background. She played four years of Division I golf at Old Dominion, and holds a Masters Degree in journalism from Arizona State's Walter Cronkite School.

How's her golf game these days? She "can still break 80 every once in awhile, which is good enough for me," she told us. She plays mostly during the Florida winters.

"I still love playing and it's something I do over the holidays with family and in Florida when my dad comes to visit," Bailey said.

Check out Bailey's work weekdays on Morning Drive, beginning at 7 a.m. (ET) on Golf Channel. She's starting out appearing on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, but will be expanding her duties as the year goes on.
