Oakland Raiders preseason broadcaster Beth Mowins just landed a gig with ESPN’s Monday Night Football and is set to become the first women to ever broadcast a nationally televised NFL game, per the Oakland Raiders.
Mowins will be partnered with former Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan to call the second game of the ESPN doubleheader kicking off the NFL regular season in Week 1 of 2017.
The game will include two of Oakland’s AFC West division rivals in the Los Angeles Chargers and Denver Broncos.
She is still expected to broadcast the Oakland preseason games on the Raiders broadcasting network, and it should serve as good practice before she is put on the big stage of MNF — which Mowins is sure to excel at it.
This is just the latest in a succession of Raiders moments where the organization is proving to be at the forefront of equality and innovation.
Ryan is currently a student at the University of North Carolina. He grew up in the Bay Area and has had Raiders season tickets his entire life fostering his love for the NFL. He has founded his own sports website, thejrreport.com and works at the Sports Desk for the Daily Tar Heel. You can follow Ryan on twitter @rytime98 if you want to discuss anything sports.
