Traditionally, it was not easy for women to get good jobs in sports journalism. One of the reasons for this was old-fashioned sexism. (A woman hanging out in a locker room with a bunch of sweaty foul-mouthed men? Egads!) Another more practical (if less predominant) reason, however, was that for a long time there just weren’t a lot of women who really were sports experts.
Luckily, times have changed. Although there is still a lot of “old fashioned thinking” in the sports world, the powers that be have at least realized that women can be just as knowledgable about sports as men. For that reason, today there are more successful female sports reporters than ever before. Moreover, because the primary viewing audience for sports programming is still predominantly male, these reporters are very, very popular. And when you think about it, why wouldn’t they be? A female sports reporter is pretty much every guy’s dream girl. A smart, attractive woman who also loves sports? Where do I sign up?
Anyway, here we are going to take a look at the most popular female sports reporters in the game today. And of course, there is only one way to gauge a public figure’s popularity these days: Twitter. So the reporters on this list will be ranked according to the size of their Twitter following.
