The first article "Where are all the women in Play-by-play broadcasting?" was written by freelance writer Britni de la Critaz and published on The Ringer. The article discusses why the broadcasting landscape looks the way it does. It delves into the notable trend of more women in broadcasting roles, while maintaining perspective that the trend makes up a small percentage of all broadcasting jobs. She also breaks down why women have the roles they have. For example, the vast majority of women in sports broadcasting are confined to sideline roles, and many male listeners say they find women's voices "annoying, shrill or grating" on play by play. She also talks with Dan D'Uva, who teaches sports broadcasting at Syracuse, about his thoughts on the future of women in sports broadcasting.
The next article, "Gender inequality in sports broadcasting improved, but work remains" was written by Jerry Liu on the Spartan Newsroom website. Similar to the first article on The Ringer, Liu breaks down the gender disparity in the sports broadcasting field, but points out the increasing trend of female broadcasters. His wide array of sources include broadcasters, journalism teachers and the vice president of the MSU chapter of the Association for Women in Sports Media. The sources all agree that the gender imbalance is a problem, and point out ways that it is being solved, and more things that can be done. For example Dan Dickerson, the Detroit Tigers broadcaster, says men need to be more involved in encouraging aspiring female broadcasters to go for play-by-play roles, rather than settling for sideline reporter jobs.
