Beth Mowins ’89, veteran and pioneering play-by-play broadcaster who currently works for both ABC and ESPN, was featured as a Primetime Pards guest on August 6, 2020.

In 2017, Mowins became the first woman in 30 years to call an NFL game and first to call a nationally-televised game when she worked the LA Chargers vs. Denver Broncos game as part of ESPN’s season-opening Monday Night Football doubleheader. She began calling college football for ESPN in 2005. Since joining ESPN in 1994, she has called NCAA Championships in basketball, softball, soccer and volleyball and has been the voice of the Women’s College World Series for more than 20 years.
