AJ Mieczko In The Broadcast Booth

from Sam Donnellon of Philly.com,

So, you don’t like hearing a woman broadcasting your major sporting events?

Well, dude, you must have had a particularly bad weekend, because a woman was involved in almost every major sport televised over several major channels.

That’s nothing new at the Kentucky Derby, and the voice of Doris Burke has become increasingly familiar to fans of the NBA, opening a portal that people such as Kara Lawson have since passed through. Former Olympic and Stanford softball standout Jessica Mendoza has also continued her analytical work on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball.

The NHL on NBC? That voice you hear, if you have tuned into any of the second-round games between the Nashville Predators and Winnipeg Jets, belongs to 42-year-old AJ Mleczko, a former U.S. Olympic gold-medal defenseman-forward from Harvard who is somehow balancing the demands of raising four children ages 6 to 14 with a new career that she wasn’t exactly seeking....

“In all honesty, I don’t think of her as a woman broadcaster at all,” said Brian Boucher, the former Flyers goaltender who works at ice level as the other member of the team. “She’s up there, it’s like I’m doing a game with Eddie Olczyk. She’s an accomplished hockey player. I look at her as just another hockey mind. And that’s how I approach it.”

Said Mleczko: “Nobody treats me like I shouldn’t be there, or even that I am any different.”

Former Olympian AJ Mleczko Working As An TV Analyst For NBC Sports Group

from Emily Kaplan of ESPN,

For the Nashville Predators and Winnipeg Jets' second-round series, the NBCSN broadcasting crew consists of play-by-play broadcaster Chris Cuthbert as well as analysts Brian Boucher and AJ Mleczko. Like many crews this time of year, the team had limited experience together but was thrust together for important games and needed to forge chemistry on the fly.

Unlike any other broadcasting crew in Stanley Cup playoff history, one of the members was a woman. Mleczko, 42, is the first woman to work as an in-booth analyst in an NHL postseason game. The significance wasn't lost on ice level, but it wasn't overdramatized either.

"That's awesome. A lot of women play hockey and are really good at hockey," said Predators center Nick Bonino, whose wife, Lauren, was a standout player at Boston University. "It's unfortunate it took this long to happen, but we're all really happy about it."

Responded Mleczko: "I think Nick's answer is perfect. I like that he doesn't seem too surprised by it. ... I wish that this wasn't a big deal. I'm thrilled to be given these opportunities by NBC. I also think, soon enough, it'll come that it isn't a big deal."
