Jackie "Mac" MacMullan (born October 7, 1960) is an American freelance newspaper sportswriter and NBA columnist for the sports website ESPN.com. A graduate of the University of New Hampshiremarker, MacMullan was a columnist and associate editor of the Boston Globe until she took a buyout from the paper in March 2008 . She began writing for the Globe in 1982. From 1995 to 2000 she covered the NBA as a senior writer for Sports Illustrated.

In 1999, MacMullan collaborated with Larry Bird on his autobiography Bird Watching: on Playing and Coaching the Game I Love. She published Magic and Bird: Basketball's Awed Couple about Bird and rival Magic Johnson in 2003, and in 2006 released Geno: In Pursuit of Perfection with Geno Auriemma and Diana Taurasi, a work that has come under heavy fire for putting a sports columnist in a business relationship with a sports personality she covers in the media.

MacMullan has been a correspondent for several cable television networks including ESPN, CNNSI, and NESN, as well as WHDH-TVmarker in Boston. She is a regular contestant on the ESPN program Around the Horn.

In response to MacMullan's departure from the Globe, she had this to say in an email to the blog site Boston Sports Media Watch:
