She started this summer in working with Fox Sports in Detroit and tells us about her role and responsibilities. Brooke tells us about how patience and appreciation helped her get to this point in her career. She also stresses the importance of capitalizing on opportunities and not shying away from ones that might not seem perfect on paper. Brooke also talks about the importance of social media for women wanting to work in sports and how she honed your social media skills. For young women who desire to work in broadcast sports, Brooke shares advice about what would have made her journey smoother or quicker. One of topics surrounding women in broadcast sports that has been swirling around in the past year or so is the trolling that on-air talent sometimes receive on social media so Kristin asks and Brooke if she had any experience with that and if so how she handled it. They also discuss the pros and cons of being so young and having such success at such a relatively young age. A must listen for any young women debating a career in sports journalism.
