Earlier this week, Erin Andrews and Charissa Thompson were featured in an incisive Hollywood Reporter (THR) article that discussed the challenges and “rampant sexism” faced by female sports reporters.
As an extension of the original article on the struggles of female sports reporters, THR gained access to a promo shoot Andrews and Thompson did for Fox Sports 1, the 24-hour sports network set to debut — coincidentally — tomorrow.
THR made the behind-the-scenes video above which features Andrews and Thompson dancing, playing off one another and singing along to Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.” It also uses text overlays stating: “They’re fun” and “They’re beautiful.” THR also published a slideshow on “all-star female sports reporters.”
As a reminder, Fox Sports 1 makes its worldwide debut tomorrow, Saturday, August 17. Much like Andrews and Thompson, the network’s focus is 24/7 sports reporting and analysis.
