Leandra Reilly became the first female to do a "play-by-play of an NBA game". Lesley Visser now works at ESPN and ABC Sports, but in 1976, she was part of the movement of women into the field of sports journalism. Gayle Gardner played a major role in this movement.

Gayle Garner was on a highly watched station and was on this station every week. Many thought of this as her dedication and perseverance finally paid off. Suzyn Waldman as well was the "first woman announcer on a nationally televised baseball game" and she also did a play-by-play on the New York Yankees. Gayle Sierens was the first who did a play-by-play for the NFL.

Jeannine Morris thinks that feminists in the 70's were more aggressive than they were in the 90's. It has become less and less as the years have gone by and it has become easier for women than it used to be.

in the 70's much hate began to rise when women started to cause controversy, especially in the sports media area. Women sports reporters were a very rare site back in the day. Teams had created rules that women journalists were not allowed in their locker room for pre-game or post-game interviews. Melissa Ludtke, who was a female reporter, had sued the Yankees because they did not allow her to interview their players while they were in the 1977 World Series.

"A few months later, in April 1979, there was a breakthrough." Right before opening day for Major League Baseball, "the New York Yankees were found guilty of discrimination." This gave all other teams an ultimatum: allow women into the locker rooms, or do not allow any reporters of any gender in at all. This opened up the eyers of a lot of teams around the league.

Robin Herman and a coworker were prohibited in an NHL locker room after an all-star game. In 1978, a women named Melissa Ludtke, who was part of Sports Illustrated, fought in court about the rights of women to interview players in the locker rooms. Since then the "access and treatment" given to female reports have overcame many obstacles.

It's Time For Sports Broadcasting To Stop Relegating Women to Sideline Eye Candy

It's Time For Sports Broadcasting To Stop Relegating Women to Sideline Eye Candy | Sports Journalism-Aspect 1 | Scoop.it
Sports broadcaster Brent Musburger's recent comments over "smokin hot" women fans and sports reporters prompted an apology from ESPN and a segment on Huffington Post Live. Pioneering TV Sports reporter Anne Doyle, author of POWERING UP! How America's Women Achievers Become Leaders, says it's long past time to close the chapter on women sports reporters as sideline eye candy and open the broadcast booth to female commentators ready for prime time.

Women have over come a lot of barriers in the field of sports journalism since the 70's and 80's. The restrictions against women in the locker room no longer exist. However, back in the day, people actually judged them for their talent in the field, and today people judge them for their looks.

Dan Steinberg and Sarah Kogod found an article from a column Bob Addie had written back in 1956. In the article he talks about how women have no right to be up in a press box with the men. He degrades women and only talks about how they look. He also says rude comments in this article about women who he believes are overtaking all the male-dominated areas in sports.
