Women talk about sports on CBS Sports Network

By From page A7 | August 27, 2014

NEW YORK — CBS officials talked about an all-women sports show for more than a year, and now they’re set to make television history.

The network announced Tuesday that “We Need to Talk” will premiere Sept. 30 on CBS Sports Network. The weekly, hour-long, prime-time program on the cable channel will be the first of its kind.

The panel will feature a core of CBS Sports announcers: Lesley Visser, Amy Trask, Tracy Wolfson, Dana Jacobson and Allie LaForce. Other contributors include Andrea Kremer and former athletes Laila Ali, Lisa Leslie, Dara Torres, Swin Cash and Summer Sanders.

“I think it’s long overdue,” CBS Sports president David Berson said in a phone interview with The Associated Press. “We’re excited to be the home for it, and all these women have such meaningful roles already within CBS or in various other places. I know they’re all excited.”

“CBS This Morning” co-hosts Norah O’Donnell and Gayle King will appear as guests.
