She has also done other work, including acting.
After completing her high school education, Elle started her career as an intern in the Atlanta based sports talk radio show called “2 live Stews” which is a part of 790/The Zone. The show is hosted by brothers Doug Stewart and Ryan Stewart who is a former professional American Football player with the Detroit Lions.
She worked there for a year, and as more opportunities opened up for her, she then joined WVEE or V-103 in Atlanta, becoming a part of the “Ryan Camera Show”, giving traffic updates, and becoming an on-air personality. She also did sports reports for the “Frank and Wanda Show”, and hosted an afternoon show.
She also became a contributor, hosting pre- and post-game shows for the Atlanta Falcons NFL team and the National Basketball Association (NBA) team the Atlanta Hawks.
She did sideline reporting and also had freelance work with Comcast Sports South, mainly reporting on ACC and SEC football games with Comcast. In 2012 she moved on, taking a job with WXIA-TV also in Atlanta, working as a traffic reporter, but getting more exposure in front of the camera with the NBC-affiliated station.
NESN and ESPN
In 2014, Duncan was hired by the New England Sports Network (NESN) to work as a host, reporter, and anchor.
The network is the primary broadcaster for several Boston teams, including the professional ice hockey team the Boston Bruins which is a part of the National Hockey League (NHL), and covering the Major League Baseball (MLB) team, the Boston Red Sox. NESN serves as the exclusive network for games of these teams not broadcast on a national network. With her work there, she also covered the NBA’s Boston Celtics.
Other work she did included sports talk shows, coverage of college sports events, and minor league baseball games. She worked as the co-host of “NESN Live” alongside Sarah Davis, and often went to events held at the TD Garden, Gillette Stadium, and Fenway Park.
Two years later, she left NESN to become a part of ESPN – the Entertainment and Sports Programming Network was founded in 1979, and is considered one of the most successful sports networks in the world.
It is available in over 90% of households in the US, and also broadcasts to over 200 countries. She primarily worked as an anchor for their program “SportsCenter”.
Other Work and Philanthropy
Aside from her work in ESPN, Elle is also the host of the Adult Swim show entitled “FishCenter Live”, or FCL, joining hosts such as Dave Bonawits and Andrew Choe for the role in the show which has been running on the network since 2015.

She also did a bit of acting work, appearing as a news reporter for the film “Ride Along”, which stars Kevin Hart, Ice Cube, and John Leguizamo, following the story of a high school security guard who works with his girlfriend’s brother, a police officer, in an effort to prove himself worthy of his girlfriend.
She also does a lot of charity work during her free time, working with the non-profit organization Walker, which emphasizes special education and behavioral health.
She worked on the program “Change Shoes, Change Lives” and has done volunteer work, appearing in campus events. She also does her best to help local non-profit organizations get wider recognition through her work. She also worked with the organization Enchanted Close which gives prom dresses, accessories, and shoes to girls for proms.
Duncan has been married to Omar Abdul Ali since 2016, and they have a daughter, Eva born in 2018.
The two often go to events together, and even dress up together for Halloween.
She’s been in a bit of trouble in the past, as she was arrested for reckless driving and hit with a DUI charge – she was reportedly driving at a high speed, weaving across the road and nearly hitting another vehicle; a test showed that her blood alcohol level was over the legal limit. However, the charges were later dropped, and she managed to avoid any consequences for her actions then.
