Two Chicago sports radio personalities on 670 The Score caught some flak after a Twitter exchange of sexist comments went viral. A few weeks later, the station announced it hired Julie DiCaro to contribute sports blogs for the WSCR-AM and CBSChicago.com website.
The Score acknowledged its need for female representation.
The sports journalism industry is overwhelmingly dominated by white males. Missouri School of Journalism professors Amy Simons, Earnest Perry and Mike McKean discussed the issue of "frat boy culture" in sports radio on a previous edition of Views of the News.
DiCaro will also join conversations on given sports subjects for the WSCR-AM show.
