Even in today’s world, there is public sentiment that women shouldn’t cover men’s sports. With 20 years invested in the industry, Bonnie has clearly proven the naysayers wrong! In this presentation, she reflects on embracing skepticism as motivation to become one of the most accomplished women in sports broadcasting and tells her very personal story of the life-threatening illness that changed the course of her career and her priorities in life.
