The rise of women in sports TV production
The final weekend of the Women’s EHF EURO 2022 will see a new broadcast record in handball — from behind the scenes. The broadcast crew, which has been 50 per cent female throughout the event, will grow with more replay operators arriving, and taking the representation of women in the team to two-thirds.
I would not differentiate at all between men’s and women’s handball in terms of quality or speed or anything. In men’s handball, they are all like, super serious — mostly. The women, they are having a ton more fun. You see so many smiles and high fives and dancing to music and stuff like that when they start to warm up or before they come onto the court. I see more joy.
