Calgary Flames-Vegas Golden Knights Game To Have All-Female Broadcast Team

The Calgary Flames and Vegas Golden Knights game next week will have an all-female broadcast team. The Canadian national sports network, Sportsnet, will have play-by-play announcer Leah Hextall, game analyst Cassie CampbellPascall and reporter Christine Simpson work the game on March 8 in Calgary.

The game finishes up the network’s week of programming recognizing International Women’s Day.

“International Women’s Day is an opportunity to inspire young women and put a spotlight on what is possible, while encouraging continued conversation and action to overcome gender-based barriers for women in the workplace,” said Alison Redmond, executive producer for Rogers Hometown Hockey. “I’m proud to work with highly talented women, whose skill, experience and perspective allow us to deliver sports programming at its best.”
