Sports Scholar: COVID-19 Pandemic Will Take A Toll On Women's Sports

Jun 17, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic left the country without its sports teams. Fans have been watching highlights from past seasons on their couches instead of games from the stands. Dr. Amy Bass is a sports studies professor at Manhattanville College in Purchase, New York. She tells WAMC’s Hudson Valley Bureau Chief Allison Dunne that certain areas of sports will take bigger hits than others.

Dr. Amy Bass is a professor of Sports Studies at Manhattanville College and an author. Her most recent book came out in 2018 — “One Goal: A Coach, a Team, and the Game That Brought a Divided Town Together.” You can hear her interview with WAMC’s Alan Chartock about that book here. She’s also an Emmy Award winner for her work with NBC-TV at the London Olympics in 2012
