LaVoi addresses challenges of drawing fans for women's sports

LaVoiN-2010.jpgSchool of Kinesiology lecturer and Tucker Center associate director Nicole LaVoi appeared on WCCO TV on Sept. 1, answering Jason DeRusha's "Good Question" on attracting fans to the stands for the Minnesota Lynx and women's sports. "Even when the men are losing they'll get front page above the fold, while female athletes are relegated to the hinterlands of the sports section or not covered at all," said LaVoi.
