Applications open for the next generation of women in sports media
A list of successful applicants from the 2022-23 Change Our Game Women in Sports Broadcasting Platform will be available on the website from Monday 8 May, 2023.
The program is designed to support women who are interested in sports media and broadcasting with the knowledge and skills to progress their career in this industry.
The Change Our Game Women in Sports Broadcasting Program is helping to level the playing field for women in sports broadcasting.
The Director of the Office for Women in Sport and Recreation, Sarah Styles, said, “Let’s continue pushing for a world where women with sports broadcasting careers are the norm. Let’s continue pushing for gender parity in the faces and voices we see and hear delivering the great moments in sport.”
Three years ago, the Office for Women in Sport and Recreation partnered with Emma Race and Lucy Race from Making The Call, who will be delivering the 2022-23 Program, to help the next generation of women realise their sports broadcasting dreams.
Since the successful pilot program in 2020, the program has supported 56 participants across Victoria in progressing their sport broadcasting careers.
One program graduate is Pokuah Frimpong, who participated in the 2021-22 Introductory Program, and hosts a podcast called Radio Dub which interviews A-League Women's players and discusses the league. Pokuah has also worked for Network 10 and Paramount Plus providing commentary on the A-League Women.
The 2022-23 Change Our Game Women in Sports Broadcasting Program provides a great opportunity for women to build knowledge and have the edge they will need to advance their careers in the sports media industry.
