CBS Sports Network To Debut All-Female Sports Talk Show Next Month
CBS Sports Network in September will debut an "all-female sports talk show" that will feature "not only feature an all-female cast, but will also be produced and directed by women," according to Jason McIntyre of THE BIG LEAD. CBS Sports President David Berson said, "We have been discussing and developing the show for well over a year. Internally and externally, there's been universal enthusiasm and across-the-board support." Berson did not confirm anyone associated with the show, but sources said that Lesley Visser, Dana Jacobson, Amy Trask, Allie LaForce, Tracy Wolfson and Jenny Dell "are expected to be regulars." Sources added that the show "will be something akin" to "The View" meets "PTI." Berson indicated that the show "would include 'personalities from other media companies' as well as current and former athletes and team executives" (THEBIGLEAD.com, 8/8).
