We Need To Talk

Visser part of CBS’ historic women-only sports talk show

CBS Sports reporter Lesley Visser knows about being first. Visser, a pioneering 40-year veteran of print and broadcast sports journalism, shared her thoughts about the debut of the first all-female national weekly sports television show “We Need To Talk.” Visser, a charter member of the Association for Women in Sports Media, is a part of the core panel of “We Need To Talk,” which first aired Sept. 30, on CBS Sports Network.

“The show will continue to show that women can handle all kinds of sports topics,” Visser said last month. “It will demonstrate that a group of women can do it together.” Visser is joined on the panel by: Amy Trask, the first female chief executive officer in the National Football League; Tracy Wolfson, lead reporter for CBS’s NCAA Tournament and NFL coverage; and Allie LaForce, a lead reporter for the SEC on CBS.
