On. I. The welcome to Franken tags in 957 game I'm Gionta Franco and I am and it and it has still to come pop client tweets of the week but right now we're very excited it's you have Christine Brennan joined an escape she is with USA today's sports. And Christine I should say he also worked with CNN NPR ABC the list goes on in on howry you. I'm create these guys would like to be on your Allan Ingraham. On over a year on the air until we're yelling you're out and and I keep up the great work it's an honor to be out with. Ain't you so much you know we've been reading a lot about your biographies and just information about all the books you've covered. I mean you read the work around breaking for women working in sports especially when he started kind of your regular gig with the Redskins in 85. Alitalia it I have been a few years ago. Every economic or which meant that there by them being club in that is your career you really can't. At they have the ambulance in until it never worked that day. And I deeply about them so what. I'm lucky in many ways and bad. So I you know it. Think it is a while ago now but when I was my new album. Out there and that should. And Ambien about about you know it. That they that they didn't work sort of in the locker room and mom's uncle school that the team you know I hear another. And we thank you didn't by the people without issuing edicts saying that ball. Reporters are you now I'd be treated equally with. Our eyes and the at a palace the last minute or big age you. A lot women have equal access to the workplace which courts. But our workplace not the last the locker room and so you know that that they were talking over thirty years now and almost as good at eleven sportsmen and our country and culture and you can't insulin an extraordinary and I'm I'm very optimistic that we got up quick. All I kept on TV and in that you guys are coming. Tradition built about it and got open opportunities in the that the court. Would you definitely an advocate for women in sports and then you brought so many important issues over the years one notably was calling out of gusting national forest lack of female members. You know why was this what did this come from basically how to discount go personally for you. What age you gain from may it you know just. Was it kind of a sense of accomplishment for you. I thought it was gentle at the end I know you don't understand that question on. I never had any agenda without national. To sit back actor Robert masters at 98 and I agent on the you know it day after much on the most of and some books haven't been abducted and then the best dollars and and I'm glad. The end of the pack. On a lot of ideas on the golf writer Merrill about the mutual he had not purport achievement than me bunker Bernie cheap or whatever you know it. All these all questions and I hit. At the end like that you have to get a job with the chairman at that. Haven't you remember and how many and it's happening in America. And basically haven't told that the crowd matter of matter I. Without get on the told that it like that voted them accurately and loaded the debt but that column and got. A lot of Havoc with any weapons and that it. A question of excellent journalism one know why did a couple. Out for a plate you know at that point he let up the stove of course at school. Would never be able to opposed to culture and couldn't click on optional creek on the PGA about it back then I beat up. I adapt with out on Long Island. And those that started that story and I was happy to over the course of the next twelve years continue to ask the question what Puerto on the case. I will probably what kind the problem and I would. This year and yet there are some people outlawed them. Shock you hear that that we're like all you think the root. Quality out of Brooklyn did not read on target or not they that I would work out our didn't even know much. Look I know all the leaders of Mike Allen. National on the ground in that people that are probably ridiculous motive. That simple question moment follow up questions I would guess what is coming out of northwestern. Very proud of that yeah that would be something that such as well the senate to. About 88 the question at park at it. And I was asked and answer to when I was able to actually break in news if you remember including arguably. I'm wrong the person remember the captain Ian. Like the Olympics in London Berlin August 20 well. And I was after the break that story early that I would trust critic of the got out and got a little help. To be able to break. I'm very. Is really just I didn't know much of the back story just outside of what I read. You know in the news and not knowing that he you know the relationships of people were advocating for a do you not necessarily. You're just delivering the news which is what we try to do is journalists these days. The project say it again I would. It was it was but the yeah there's a lot of journalism breaking out in golf. And I've been on everybody's. I'm know what you do Elop we do add up questions. Haven't legally you have planned giving at the Arnold was triggered it right were they over the years there golf writer and hey layup with let's look at it of course it is. I bet that they'll bring her to the add back on some culture. I I think that the culture there and mindset of this sport. Where people are really thinking through it and logically what's going on and trying to figure out on the witness stand that they are culture and you know the call. I'm very private. Good that I could wave our mission would call moving forward and let on the open golf tournament next year's going to be alphabetical international. That. Naslund had been a while now without some of about an during the campaign. I didn't have column about the now. I think the basic movement obviously the product in the US golf association increase. If it. You know membership and increase the participation of girls and women. Whether that it isn't like and I think moving forward Paul is. Desperately need and you offer an average temperature and women and girls are the quote it this week golf. I get all that really put itself all are out there are adequate to really get a call. Eliminate optimism that the women got and that but I'm thinking. I played my whole life I'd like it I decked out that they went to a girl he never good at what I should doctors couldn't tell either Iraq or republic. This is the he's got did. The weight he thought the well our own like 3040 years after the game or not at all on the court exit. And so I keep him on the credit that the Republican as a minute now I. That I was writing and gall to basically. At a stop sign for women. And now with the opt out. We have gridlock and getting women designing the game alcohol. And I think got a real problem at all if they try to twenty and thirty something billions of these young women. I'm involved with title nine and now want a ticket what you have to realize they're doing marathon not a mark on it I think. We have triathlon. Ideal guy evening but not going to ball. And I think at the ballpark park on the same conversation which is that. App so it makes sense that you did mention your dad your love of sports kind of generates from your father in your relationship in fact a little bit from best seat in the house it's kind of the father daughter my mark. I talk a little bit about that and just kind of you know. House sort of your dad kind of just blot you know created this level sports for you. Well didn't you bill that aren't so lucky ones. That are reproductive. Quietly let it potluck. At a time when you get you up on that and don't. I am I. You know growing up in the 60s70s. And it's time to go out when I'm occur so while the sports. Am my father. You know the floor and my ball on my problem in the cap and I was that product back on board and my dad the sanction but I'd. I have no data with other didn't we didn't after he suffered a lead now I don't on the idea that they were very few others. Or mom and I'm on the court it's. Like what I like it didn't and hit a very different. Now but nothing like what goes on our I didn't have a lot of these type. You know did it with extraordinary epic battle that it's happening what probably was it via the web. It is my aunt in that I was the great couldn't I didn't get on like a cat with them a copy that brought the ball properly. The term a throw like a girl was so popular back and should definitely take it and well that out now because that you know like a girl out of content in particular the ball properly of course. Knowing the girls. I have learned a lot of but back then it was that bad old. Old with an art than the true it. I never like a girl boy a lot of it what that means I have I am a bit on the anyways the strategic initiative upon them we got the ball. When tiger came by and gave the global sport with a merchant with my dad on that might have been long after that. That no water no I don't I'm not out of social network. Of these sport and gave me every app. My mom to follow victory in the act at a time when. It would have gone about the creeping in the world. I can understand the honesty because my dad died at his own business. And at best times that we had together are watching sports and I think that's where my love for sports actually come from as well. It's like losing an item he with with all that now back to your work. I say even a child lazy you really are a true journalist. And I can't bring up. Social media and how it's changed the industry rang out feel like. It seems where cup not as much covering stories more about being the first to get out there routed and getting right. He just talk about the importance of journalistic integrity and we seem less ethics considered. Outlined article that you're asking that the divine concerned about the and you know it is great to order and I love breaking news don't get me wrong I realize it's a quick break a lot of the Michael felt like there and kinds of things issues before the Rio games in terms of their credit. Concerns currently are so. Topic is getting it right that it captive and I think you're right we are where were we do that. And I thought that are out there won't look at it it still leading. And I understand like that way it is bad journalism. Journalism and doubles acting triple checking quadrupled checking. My column. Whatever that Tiger Woods' return that is it. And about their alternate. Yesterday I wrote it in the morning and I was reading it I went back and double check accusing. But I am mad at him yesterday and it's wanted to make sure that that up in the thirty. There's no note that in. The double and triple what it would ever checking and make sure your eyes and I'm the advocate we are. When I'm leading I'm gonna play on now. I want to read out loud I felt the flight ended and that I'm in a practice round at the Olympics the typical of the masters there where I am. And I'm around people want it to the outline out top isn't it in my literally need every syllable that's because there goes your career. You know people want jobs because between it and it is at the latter are developed at apple but I think that don't work out. It their city's great pride again journalists out yeah this is your name on this is on the golf that he didn't get. And the way I'm able to break actually do some of the things I'm doing work Ian mark agency and I'll buy it used. More tedious like if you don't ever get my 23 imported. It because. I thought whatever reputation I've got it is that work of art. And make sure that. That I'll be able to without that kind of in its reputation on the Arctic are wrong and there's no my on the money. That they can buy you that. And they didn't you know heartbeat and I have great script would respect for the privilege what I have been given our outlook Alia and probably true and the talent in my life I'd I'd in my career I don't know. And that is why you are wary you are actually I think a lot of you know. Younger people forget that you just privilege it is a privilege to do what we do and offer this information all they care about is that hash tag and what's trending what's happening in how I make this the next thing that everybody wants to look at whether it's completely writer largest. A perspective your opinion isn't necessarily news. And I just think it is just a fine line we locked now with social media these days it's it's good and bad you know I love the reach it gives us that. I also it these mile and sometimes because it really can products on information. Oh yeah and that that I'd be happy. Cult of personality. I mean I get in I'm very involved at our alma mater are dying out Latinos seem to. Alan. General news that another I don't let it is an impact on our parent. And it didn't happen that. The gluten videos. Panel and I I'm average on that all of our presidents on dollar and that. But if that note I posted on the book report for fifteen years we've been in big. I can turn it on and on with 35. Report by the Washington Post about a year. That was I don't report that apple pie and that really he'd need. Will be on it and I believed to have opinions that matter and even though and I went back out. And yet without putting on and then it. Haven't been written on the mountain when I'm up. The bottom line here again we're talking about your years of recording. On the notion of going to want to be a rock star lineup that won't like what one it's. They are still there at northwestern we both looked at it and they will come back in the right on the back. That that because I couldn't keep your radio cord both sport. On that day. Did not do that. But be careful. About the notion that you're going to be among our way up and down and do a lot of good work. And then when you come up for air people be ready to do you do about that indeed are important that everybody. It is nice ad definitely some great advice there and I can tell that you're deathly somebody that people would love to come and see you do a lot of speaking engagements as well. Not just working hard in the workplace to get their day at work your way up. But what are some what's your advice do you have to women in general when it comes to tackling sexism in the workplace like I said Europe TrailBlazer here. Well you know IE that there's certainly a lot of issues we in the Manila and and those that did not have a surprise or. Anybody that should some that didn't deal. I do you think there are a much better than ever world war and one that don't work for a talked about it in detail what about the problems that page amendment to Pakistan. Women. You cannot you don't want to talk. Obviously trouble I used and that this is something. It is untoward and wore it on illegal about it. I'm not saying except that. That moment what with the idea that it would be great I. I did I'd never vote for trouble and even when there were problems. You know whether it would be some of the popular you on the screen you know one. I know you typically didn't like. You know even more and I it was like that they are okay what it would or Al Gore back. I'm Bob won now by. And the district in an election with some part and some at some point the sound and but I think it is important. To. Understand that there aren't you learned your current topic slightly by. Also if you're going to do that in the locker room certain of you're going to be they're demanding an advocate that they want it delivered. Although women violence. So that covered or not behave because can do much better role model over almonds and not have. An announcement in one of the worst. But I and that I think the other thing I would say there were he did. If people you know I just on TV I'm not going to look our apartment. But I am like market. And HBO did something that long ago I was cold apple is again longevity. I want equity I don't walk on the sideline. That particular problem on my team and I just women but. I want them to count on. And if you like snapped relying. You know. Being young and beautiful which is great advocate that or that. Acute and difficult economic it's a line and that we're not going to be a by. Your thirtieth that he thought by the next when it. Got to have talent. And it rained relying on that I don't lot of bought say galaxies are you know. That. That it really puts in ninety what happened to each hit a lot. But I encourage them that in the dollar jacket I'll do that at bat. It actually. Trying to appeal the twelve year old girl on the outs on the growth growth industry or television in sport. Carlton women don't live around acting like it's not a party that I'm not a thing about everywhere but I. Bet that is not going to be. And I can get it in my body cavity that in a career at all. It applies. It's about doing something that's not why. We the demographically really want to be in the cardinal as well. And without merit watching the Euro or whatever who will are looking prospective deal and looking wonderful. While reporting on men and women in sports. Taken more seriously absolutely and I think that that's a wait and still laid to teach and be courageous and confident. You know did you did you not eat aren't just pretty can be Smart to. Well I've actually got gala what not a gap can that I put that up very. Happy with you know I am not a government of Eric I'd. And I look to get anything rolling out. There are with all about I look at on it but it is dial and it hadn't been there and hard work won't agreed academics. Of course achievement oriented and you know it. Liked it when we didn't tackle or you know if he had it. You you're allowing that now that I can. You're around your belt is put into the certain egg. Well then loudly your options are minimal and that is that really bothers in architecture are gone against an implement both. Two. Not yet be drawn into a certain categories. Like to break out of that category what they're Smart. It rains and Charlotte what you now and again I think that we're in right. And if you can be behind the camera closet on the she didn't you know write for the web site that you keep inflation of course with the newspaper beyond traditional eternity. On without its say up. They're the ones that kind of Korea where. And an hires that are we want people who are multi dimensional.
