Beth Mowins became the second woman to call nationally televised college football games for ESPN in 2005.

She began doing play-by-play for the NFL in 2017. Her initial Monday Night Football broadcast also made her the first-ever woman to call a nationally-televised game for the League.

Additionally, Mowins was the first female to announce college basketball, the NBA, and the NFL for CBS Sports in the network’s 58-year history.

Her distinguished career started in Homer, where she took her first job as News and Sports Director at WXHC in 1991. It was the same year GM/owner John Eves founded the radio station with his family.

This week, Mowins returned home to give a presentation for students at SUNY Cortland.

During the visit, she stopped with her husband, Alan, and sat down for a brief conversation with Eves.
