NBA Analysts Ann Meyers and Stephanie Ready Make Broadcasting History

In a male dominated field these women are proving they’re just as capable of getting the job done.  Ann Meyers and Stephanie Ready made history earlier this week when the ladies worked the Suns Vs. Hornets game announcing for their respective teams.

Ready is no stranger to making history. Last year she became the first full-time female analyst for the National Basketball Association (NBA). In 2001 she also became the D-1 leagues first female assistant coach and thee first female to coach in men’s professional sports. Making boss moves comes natural to her.

As for Meyers, she’s a force herself. According to Huffington Post she is a Basketball Hall of Famer and previously served as vice president and TV color commentator for Fox Sports Arizon.

Congratulations to both women as they continue to push the envelope of success for women in the sports industry.
