The Worldwide Leader has revealed some good news.
We have some good news out of ESPN to report.
The Worldwide Leader announced today that it has signed Julie Foudy, a soccer analyst and commentator for espnW, to a big extension.
Julie Foudy, the two-time Olympic gold medalist and former United States Women’s National Team captain who has become a highly respected sports journalist and commentator, has signed a multi-year agreement to remain with ESPN.
Foudy will continue to cover major events for espnW and ESPN, including the FIFA Women’s World Cup, Olympic Games, Special Olympics and NCAA Championships. She also continues as the brand’s leading voice on pay equity, leadership development, and other issues involving women and sports.
She will continue her multi-faceted role as ESPN’s lead women’s soccer analyst and studio analyst/reporter for select global soccer events. She will also remain a contributor to the E:60 newsmagazine and Outside the Lines. In 2016, Foudy’s E:60 story “Turf Wars” on the dangers of artificial turf fields earned a prestigious Edward R. Murrow Award for investigative reporting.
Congrats to Julie.
