Burke, Trask Among WISE Award Finalists

doris-burkeTwo noted broadcasters, Doris Burke of ESPN and Amy Trask of CBS Sports Network, have been named finalists for the 2017 Women in Sports and Events (WISE) Women of the Year Award. It will be presented to three women at the 23rd Annual WISE Women of the Year Awards Luncheon on June 22, 2017 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City.

Burke, a basketball analyst and reporter, is a college baskeball standout turned trailblazing commentator. She has covered basketball for ESPN since March 1991, calling men’s and women’s college and pro contests. She works a variety of ESPN assignments, including the NBA, women’s basketball regular season and NCAA championship, and men’s basketball regular season and Championship Week.

Trask is a barrier-breaker in the front office and in front of the camera. She joined CBS Sports Network in 2013 as a studio analyst on That Other Pregame Show and serves as a panelist on We Need to Talk, the first-ever nationally televised all-female sports show. She also contributes to The NFL Today on CBS.

The final ballot has been issued to all WISE members for a national vote, which closes at 10 p.m. ET on Friday, December 23, 2016.
