History was made Wednesday night.
As the Toronto Raptors hosted the Denver Nuggets at Amalie Arena, every on-air role on the game's TSN broadcast was held by women, making for the first-ever all-female broadcast team in NBA history.

Play-by-play duties were handled by Meghan McPeak while WNBA star and Canadian National Team member Kia Nurse joined as the analyst. Sideline duties were handled by Kayla Grey while the duo of Kate Beirness and Amy Audibert held things down during pregame, halftime and postgame.
With history made, those from within the basketball world and beyond took to Twitter to react.
An impressive crew - congratulations, @AmyAudibert, @KateBeirness, @Kayla_Grey, @KayNurse11, and @MeghanMcPeak. You're making history, and that's going to mean a lot to so many young girls across the country.

I feel like, when this broadcast crew was announced earlier this month, other networks looked around and said, we should do this too! And that's what it takes! Recognize the value of these moments. Then repeat them. https://t.co/Xx2qIRHua5- Kerith Burke (@KerithBurke) March 24, 2021
