Beth Mowins '89

Join Beth Mowins '89, a veteran and pioneering play-by-play broadcaster who currently works for both ABC and ESPN, for Primetime Pards on Thursday, Aug. 6

In 2017, Mowins became the first woman in 30 years to call an NFL game and first to call a nationally-televised game when she worked the LA Chargers vs. Denver Broncos game as part of ESPN’s season-opening Monday Night Football doubleheader. She began calling college football for ESPN in 2005. Since joining ESPN  in 1994, she has called NCAA Championships in basketball, softball, soccer and volleyball and has been the voice of the Women’s College World Series for more than 20 years. 

Mowins captained Lafayette’s women’s basketball team, was a three-time all-conference selection, 1,000-point scorer, and is still the Leopards’ all-time career assists leader with 715. She was inducted into the Maroon Club Hall of Fame in 2005. 

Mowins earned her master’s degree in communications from Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School in 1990. In 2015, Syracuse honored her with the Marty Glickman Award for leadership in sports media, joining the likes of Bob Costas, Marv Albert and Sean McDonough.
