ESPN to feature Bain-Moore

Kim Bain-Moore of Alabaster, Ala. — who as a 2009 Bassmaster Classic qualifier became the first woman to compete in the prestigious event — will be one of the female athletes featured by ESPN in its March programming in observance of national Women’s History Month.

The piece on Bain-Moore, the 2008 Toyota Tundra Women’s Bassmaster Tour Angler of the Year, will be part of a series of vignettes that starts March 8 and will air on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNEWS, ESPNU and ESPN Classic during studio shows as well as during basketball programming, including the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament.

Women’s History Month will be highlighted on many of ESPN’s media platforms. They include ESPN.com and ESPN360.com; ESPN The Magazine; SportsCenter on ESPN Deportes, as well as several international networks in Latin America. ESPN Classic will feature an 11-hour marathon about famous women athletes on Saturday, March 14, at 9 a.m.

ESPN’s Women’s History Month programming will wrap with a one-hour special, “Her Story.” It will air Friday, March 27, at 8 p.m. ET. Hosted by SportsCenter’s Hannah Storm, Her Story will focus on up-and-coming female athletes and the issues they face.
