This week, CBS announced a “first” in the world of sports. Next month the network will launch weekly sports program that will be hosted entirely by women.

The hour show - dubbed "We Need to Talk" - will premiere on the CBS sports Network.

It will include a rotating cast of female contributors and will be anchored by four hosts, including famed sportscaster Lesley Visser.

Having started in the media world back in the 1970s when sports credentials stated “no women or children in the pressbox,”  Visser says it is about time she and her colleagues got their own show.
