Sports Radio host Mike Missanelli fired for Complaining About Female Football Announcer


A Philadelphia sports radio personality says he lost a weekly television gig after saying a female announcer calling an NFL game “sounds unnatural.”

Mike Missanelli said on his radio show that he was fired from “Sports Sunday” on WPVI, Philadelphia’s ABC station.

He says it’s because on Tuesday he questioned why ESPN was using Beth Mowins to do play-by-play on ESPN’s Monday Night Football double-header.

He says he has no one to blame but himself and calls it a “harsh result.”

“I don’t know why the sporting world needs a female play-by-play person on an NFL game,” Missanelli had said, via Crossing Broad. “And I know that sounds harsh, and I just want to know what is the reason for it?”

He appeared to know he was heading down a path that would not end well.

“I’m just curious as to why we need to have a woman call an NFL game,” he said. “Now I know she’s called many college games, uh, I don’t know, maybe I should quit while I’m ahead.”

Below is a clip of Missanelli discussing Beth Mowins with producer Andrew Salciunas:
