Meet Sarah Spain…I have yet to meet her in person, but we have exchanged conversation on Twitter. Sarah has a huge voice in the sports world much of which can be attributed to her passion for telling stories. She also has a huge voice in the world of bringing a female voice to a male dominated profession.

Sarah is a Peabody Award-winning radio host, TV personality and writer. She is one half of the “Spain and Fitz” radio show, airing weeknights on national ESPN radio, a writer for espnW.com, host of ESPN’s “That’s What She Said” podcast, a regular panelist on “Around The Horn” and a “SportsCenter” reporter.

No one makes it to that stage in the professional world without a strong voice…but what I love most about her, she represents the voice, tenacity, intentionality that I want for my children especially for my daughter Rose. She is a role model, glass ceiling breaker, a conversation starter, and a change agent.

Her voice is changing the space of sports and sports reporting…she is changing the language we are using when talking about women, girls, and sports. She changed mine and even corrected me numerous times in this interview. I hope she changes yours!
