E! EXAMINES GROWTH OF WOMEN'S SPORT IN "HARD BODIES"
Published September 28, 1998
The progress of female pro athletes was examined by E!'s Gabrielle Reece in the special "Hard Bodies." While female athletes are now "one of the hottest tickets in town," women's sports "have only recently hit the mainstream." Reece added that although women are "gaining equal court time" with the men in pro sports, it may be years before they earn "comparable pay." ABL Lasers G Jennifer Azzi: "The economics of it has to come along before you're going to have those outrageous salaries." L.A. WNBA F Lisa Leslie: "I don't know that we would ever catch up to where the men are, but I think that our pay will definitely continue to increase over the years" (E!, 9/27).
