In the past 6 months I have read countless articles on fighting sexism and inequality for female reporters in sports. There is also a push to hire more women as announcers. Can you imagine a women announcing NFL or NHL games? In the NBA, they already have Doris Burke who does colour commentary on some games and it drives me insane. I always have to watch the game on mute when she's on. I read an article about a month ago in SI about the need for the first woman broadcaster in NFL. The article even opined that NFL viewership was sexist and it would be hard to get men to listen to a woman announcer.

And once again, the worst part is that the men in power in these industries: the commissioners, the media company executives (ESPN, TNT, FOX), and the male journalists are the ones that are pushing for these changes.

Why can't women just stick to reporting women's sports?

One word answer : MONEY.
They want to expand the marketplace. Men will keep watching and buying but every new female viewer / fan is another person to sell too. We all know women are the largest consumers in our society.

When the media comany executives and League executives go to meet with the advertisers they have millions more viewers and a whole new demographic.

It's not about gender equality and feminism....it's about that paper!
