The #BossWomen in Broadcasting Roles

From the hardwood to the broadcast booth, check out some current and former WNBA players that have taken their talents to television.

Candace Parker

NBA TV Analyst

A mother, professional athlete and broadcaster, Candace Parker can do it all.

The 2x MVP, 5x All-Star and WNBA champion joined the NBA TV broadcast booth in 2018. In September, Parker agreed to a multi-year extension with Turner to continue her full-time role as an analyst for NBA on TNT, NBA TV and NCAA Tournament coverage. Parker and colleague Kristen Ledlow will also launch a new basketball podcast this upcoming season, continuing their coverage of the NBA across multiple platforms. Although it’s considered the “offseason” for Parker, her coverage of the NBA is just getting started.

Rebecca Lobo

Women’s Basketball Analyst and Reporter

A WNBA legend and member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, Rebecca Lobo has been a full-time WNBA and Women’s College Basketball analyst for ESPN since 2004. Most recently, Lobo was a color commentator during the 2019 WNBA Playoffs and Finals.

Rebekkah Brunson

Fox Sports North Timberwolves Analyst

A 5x WNBA champion, Rebekkah Brunson has the most titles for an individual player in WNBA history. She made her broadcasting debut covering the Minnesota Timberwolves for Fox Sports North in January. With the Timberwolves’ season underway, Brunson will continue her coverage as an analyst for Fox Sports North this season.

Chiney Ogwumike

ESPN Analyst

A former first overall selection and current member of the Los Angeles Sparks, Chiney Ogwumike signed a multi-year contract with ESPN in 2018 to become a full-time basketball analyst. She joins teammate Candace Parker as yet another active player in the league to currently hold a broadcasting role. So far in just over a year with ESPN, Ogwumike has appeared on shows such as First Take, Get Up!, The Jump and His & Hers. This season, Ogwumike looks to be a focal part of ESPN’s NBA coverage.
