Sports Culture Interview. | “The Female Voice in Sports Media” (Panel)

The state of sports journalism today, the advantages and disadvantages women face in the media and the perceptions they must overcome will be addressed during “The Female Voice in Sports Media,” the fifth installment of the “Beyond the Box Score” lecture series hosted by Medill, Northwestern Athletics, Northwestern Women’s Center and One Book One Northwestern.

USA Today columnist Christine Brennan (BSJ80, MSJ81) will moderate the discussion with a panel that includes CNN’s Rachel Nichols (BSJ95), Fox Sports’ Pam Oliver, and ESPN’s Cari Champion and Cassidy Hubbarth (BSJ07).

This year’s event is co-sponsored by the Northwestern Women’s Center and One Book One Northwestern. More than 40 years after its birth, the impact of Title IX legislation can be seen in the vast number of women participating in sports compared to a generation ago. Likewise, there has been a rise in the number of female journalists who cover sports, with the fight for equality of access to the press box and locker room not unlike the fight for equal access to the playing field.

Each panelist has her own story, but there are countless others that need to be told. That is why, to coincide with the event, Medill students profiled a collection of women in sports media, many of whom are Northwestern alumni. The stories, hosted in an online collection on Medium, launched earlier this month and will continue to be published leading up to and following the event.

Hope you guys had a Happy Chinese New Year!

Hopefully the stories in this video encourage us to not jump to conclusions about individuals going through a time of homelessness, but to graciously love them and be willing to hear their stories.

I know meeting Louis, Kevin and Angel was an invaluable experience for me.

Sports Culture Interview. | Jamal Crawford “@JCrossover” Documentary


We had the pleasure of spending our summer in Seattle with the LA Clippers’ Jamal Crawford as he hosted his annual Seattle Pro-Am league. For two months, we captured highlights and conducted interviews with Pro-Am players like Isaiah Thomas & Tony Wroten as well as Seattle basketball legends like Gary Payton and Brandon Roy who talked to us about Jamal and how committed he is to giving back to his community.

We also talked to Jamal about his basketball journey that started at home with a yellow Dr J basketball to playing pick-up games with the original Lob City crew of Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp while Crawford was still in high school to the University of Michigan and then to the NBA where he has been breaking records and throwing lobs to Blake Griffin as part of the modern day Lob City.
