Beth Mowins is doing what no one woman has done before her.

The play-by-play announcer will reportedly call tonight’s game between the Atlanta Hawks and Philadelphia 76ers on ESPN alongside color commentator Jeff Van Gundy and sideline reporter Cassidy Hubbarth.

In 2017, she became the first woman to call a national broadcast of an NFL game when she did play-by-play for a Denver Broncos-Los Angeles Chargers “Monday Night Football” matchup alongside commentator Rex Ryan.

Sounds like some real progress is being made.
