In recognition of her numerous achievements, we will be honoring Connie with the Charles Osgood Award for Excellence in Broadcast Journalism.
An iconic figure in the world of sports journalism, Lesley Visser has shattered numerous glass ceilings in her professional career, perhaps most notably as the first woman analyst to cover an NFL game on TV.

Lesley is also the first woman to receive the Scully Award.
