The Marist College Center for Sports Communication welcomes pioneering ESPN sportscaster along with SportsCenter producer Rick Angelo as part of its speaker series on Wednesday, October 26, 7:00 p.m. in the Fusco Recital Hall.
Cohn is one of the most accomplished and versatile broadcasters in sports media. She has anchored over 5,000 SportsCenter broadcasts, more than anyone in the history of the network. She has also hosted an extensive list of ESPN programs, including Baseball Tonight, National Hockey Night, RPM 2Night, and the WNBA Draft. Cohn has reported on countless high profile events, including the NFL Draft, MLB Playoffs, NCAA Basketball Men’s Final Four, NHL All-Star Game, and others. She has also done play-by-play for LPGA Tour events and WNBA games for ESPN. In addition to her role at ESPN, Cohn is a sports radio host on Sirius XM’s Mad Dog Sports Radio.
Cohn has consistently broken ground for women in sports media throughout her career, creating pathways for the next generation of female sports broadcasters. In 1987, she became the first full-time female sports anchor on a national radio network. She co-hosted the first ever SportsCenter in high definition in 2004. In 2008, Cohn authored a memoir entitled “Cohn-Head, a No-Holds-Barred Account of Breaking into the Boy’s Club,” where she detailed the challenges and successes at the peak of the sports broadcasting landscape. In 2014, Bleacher Report named Cohn one of the 25 most influential women in sports.
Linda Cohn will be joined on stage by Rick Angelo, who currently serves as producer for SportsCenter at ESPN, where he has been for the past eight years. Angelo has 18 years of experience in sports production with CBS, YES Network, CSTV, and other top sports networks.
Dr. Keith Strudler, director of the Marist College Center for Sports Communication, will moderate the discussion with Cohn and Angelo. They will discuss topics ranging from challenges of producing engaging sports media and the ongoing progress made by women in sports media. The discussion will be followed by a question-and-answer session with the audience.
