Sports Columnist Christine Brennan Talks Sports, Gender and Purple-Haired Leadership

July 15, 2019

USA Today Sports Columnist and TV Commentator Christine Brennan has covered every major sporting event imaginable for nearly four decades -- including 18 Olympics and all four World Cup championships of the U.S. Women's Soccer Team.  Megan Rapinoe, Alex Morgan and their 2019 teammates have delivered revenue, viewing audiences, championships and the all-time best-selling soccer jersey in U.S. history. Now they are demanding equal pay.  Brennan says, "Love  'em or hate 'em, they are strong, tough, have changed the conversation about women's sports and they're not going away!" 

 

With over 1,000 women covering sports today, Brennan encourages girls and women to learn more about sports journalism careers through her website: ChristineBrennan.com.
