Cross Talk: Season Five, Episode 19

March 25, 2021

On the first all-female broadcast crew in NBA history. From March 25, 2021.  The Toronto Raptors become the first team in NBA history to have a game with an all-female broadcast crew: play-by-play announcer, analyst-colour commentator, sideline reporter, and broadcast show co-hosts.  It's just the third time in history a woman has performed the play-by-play.  First time was in 1988; and then, not again until 2018.  Meghan McPeak -- an alum of the Broadcasting - Radio program at Humber College in Toronto -- makes history as the first woman to do it a second time. And as the first woman of colour.  Of course it's all very exciting for one of her former professors.  For Educational purposes.  Makes fair dealing use of bits of audio from TSN Toronto, WUSA-TV Washington D-C, and highlights posted by the NBA on YouTube.
