ESPN's "Around The Horn" Making History Today With 1st All-Female Panel

ESPN's Around The Horn sports debate show has existed since November 2002. 

In the show's 14-plus years of being on-air, there has never been an all-female four-person panel. That is changing today. 

ESPN announced this afternoon that this evening's show will feature a panel of Jemele Hill, Jackie MacMullan, Sarah Spain and Kate Fagan.

From ESPN:

“While today is certainly special, our female panelists have always been an important part of Around the Horn, particularly in recent years as we’ve broadened the roster of core contributors by adding even more diverse voices,” said coordinating producer Aaron Solomon. “Today, we were just fortunate that all of their schedules aligned so they could be on together.”

The show, hosted by Tony Reali, will air at its usual time of 5 p.m. E.T. on ESPN.
