Your Call: More people are watching women’s sports than ever – why won’t the sports media cover it?
On the July 2nd edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about coverage of women’s sports.
ESPN’s SportsCenter -- with more than 100 million viewers each month -- devoted a scant 2 percent of airtime to women’s sports. That number hasn’t budged much in 15 years – even as audiences for events like the Women's World Cup continue to grow. Why is this happening – and does it matter? It’s Your Call with Matt Martin, and you.
