All-women sports show debuts with perfect timing
NEW YORK (AP) — An all-women sports show premieres Tuesday night with perfect timing.
NFL domestic violence cases have dominated the headlines for weeks. A core panel of a dozen female commentators will appear on “We Need to Talk,” which airs on cable channel CBS Sports Network. The weekly, hour-long, prime-time show is the first of its kind.
CBS executives say it will be a traditional sports program offering a different perspective. The main panelists are a mix of veteran broadcasters and former pro athletes.
CBS has shown its commitment to the show by promoting it during hugely popular NFL and SEC broadcasts. The audience for “We Need to Talk” will be limited, though, by the distribution for CBS Sports Network, which is in fewer than half of the country’s homes with televisions.
