In six Halls of Fame, she is often recognized as the “First”—the first woman enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame; the first woman to report from a Super Bowl sideline; the first woman to cover the NFL as a beat; the first and only woman to present the Championship Lombardi Trophy at the Super Bowl; the first female sportscaster to carry the Olympic Torch, the first woman on “Monday Night Football” and the first female analyst in both Radio and TV. She is the only sportscaster, male or female, to have worked on the Network Broadcasts of the Final Four, the Super Bowl, the NBA Finals, the Olympics, the World Series, the Triple Crown, the World Figure Skating Championship and the US Open Tennis.

Co-hosted by the Newhouse Sports Media Center and the Newhouse School’s magazine, news and digital journalism department, this event will be hosted by Terry Egan on Zoom.
