Cover the Game, Close the Gap.

Last night was not only a win for the Denver Broncos, but a win for all women in getting one step closer to gender equality. Beth Mowins now holds the title as the first woman to call a nationally-televised NFL game, as she covered the Broncos defeat of the LA Chargers at Sports Authority field last night.

At ESPN, Beth began her history-making journey calling college games- only the second woman to do so for the network. Beth’s coverage of the game generated support by Broncos players, and the NFL on social media, bringing well-deserved attention to history in the making.

Beth will continue calling nationally televised games throughout the season, and we can only hope this sets a precedent, opening the door for young women passionate about careers in the sports industry. Catch Beth covering CBS games throughout the season, including the upcoming September 24th Browns vs. Colts game.
