ESPN Celebrates International Women’s Day on March 8

March 8th is a significant day as it marks the day we celebrate International Women’s Day. For the third consecutive year ESPN will celebrate this momentous day by turning over its broadcasting and production reins to an all women crew. 

On Friday, March 8. the Minnesota Timberwolves will visit the Cleveland Cavaliers at 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN. Play-by-play voice Beth Mowins, Monica McNutt and reporter Katie George will form ESPN’s all-women’s broadcast team. It marks the fifth time this season that ESPN has deployed an all-women’s team for an NBA game.

Behind the camera, coverage will be led by an all-women ESPN staff. The pivotal roles span across several ESPN teams, including production, operations, transmissions, social media, graphics, stats, social media, and more. In total, 175 women will contribute to ESPN’s NBA coverage across platforms on Friday. The theme will continue when women also continue to lead ESPN’s NBA studio programming on International Women’s Day as Malika Andrews hosts both NBA Today (3-4 p.m. ET) and NBA Countdown (7-7:30 p.m.) from ESPN’s Los Angeles Production Center. ESPN NBA commentators, including analysts Chiney Ogwumike and Becky Hammon and senior writer Ramona Shelburne, will join Andrews for both shows on ESPN.

“This is truly a celebration of what happens regularly on ESPN’s NBA property – women occupying key positions on camera and behind it,” said Laurie Privitera, ESPN Producer. “I’m so proud to be part of our coverage on Friday because it underscores how we show up every day.”
