‘I have nothing to hide’: How a young woman who was a model turned to journalism
The first woman to cover the NFL is finally getting the recognition she deserves after becoming the first African-American woman to work for the sport’s largest network.
The Memphis Post-Intelligencer published the article on Friday in which Natasha Campbell was named as the first black female reporter at the network.
She had initially joined the network as a columnist in 2001.
It was the network’s first African American woman reporter.
The network had initially given Campbell a two-year contract.
The decision to award her the award came after she spoke out against the treatment of women athletes in sports.
She wrote an open letter last year in which she described the treatment women athletes faced in the NFL.
She said she had to turn down several offers to join the network because she felt the pressure.
“I was afraid I was going to be fired or fired out of nowhere, but I was afraid to do it,” Campbell told the paper.
“We are supposed to be heroes, to be in the best position to speak out about injustice.”
The announcement on Saturday by the network came as part of a series of statements made by its top executives to address racial and gender discrimination in the sport.
The networks announcement came as a backlash was building against the network for the treatment, including the decision to fire former ESPN host Jemele Hill, who had been a co-host on “Inside the NFL” and the NFL Network.
The outcry led to a boycott of the network by several athletes.
The latest issue of the Post-Dispatch newspaper featured Campbell’s interview with the network which aired on Friday.
It said Campbell was invited to cover “NFL Nation” on NFL Network’s Monday Night Football game between the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots.
“The story was told,” the newspaper said.
“She had an opportunity here to tell the truth about the industry, the league, the players and to talk about the challenges women face.” “
Campbell, a graduate of North Carolina State University, joined the newspaper at the age of 17 and worked in sports journalism for five years before joining the Memphis Post as a correspondent in 2006. “
