Molan's first job in media was with a community television station in Canberra. She then gained a job for WIN Television as a reporter and presenter and moved to Sydney in 2010 to work for the Nine Network. In 2012, she joined The NRL Footy Show on a regular basis, appearing mainly on the "League of their Own" segment as well as being their roving reporter. In 2014, Molan became a permanent co-host of the program working alongside Paul Vautin, Darryl Brohman, Beau Ryan, and former test cricketer Michael Slater. Molan has also appeared on The Sunday Footy Show as a regular since 2012, mainly doing the "Around the Grounds" segment reporting. In 2016, Molan was appointed host of The NRL Rookie, which aired on 9Go!.

Molan has previously filled in as a sport presenter on Nine News and Today. From December 2016, she was made permanent Friday and Saturday sport presenter on Nine News Sydney replacing Yvonne Sampson who moved to Fox Sports.

It was announced on 3 October 2018 that, after twenty-four years, The NRL Footy Show would be axed following the worst slide in ratings in the show's history. In December 2021, Molan resigned from the Nine Network to join Sky News Australia as a primetime contributor.

Also in December 2021, Molan declined an approach to run as the Liberal Party of Australia candidate for the Division of Eden-Monaro in the 2022 Australian election, saying her future political ambitions with the Liberals are “down the track”.

Personal life

In April 2017, Molan announced that she was engaged to Sean Ogilvy. Their daughter was born in 2018. Three years later, Molan announced her relationship with fiancé Ogilvy had broken down.
