Subject: Hey another white guy on the PG sports page

Are there any women writing full time on the PG sports page any more? Jenn Menendez gone, Audrey Snyder gone, Shelly Murphy left a while ago.
The latest hire is a guy who is going to be allowed to divide his time between the PG and Sporting News. http://www.post-gazette.com/sports/steelers/2016/11/28/Sean-Gentille-How-did-I-get-to-the-Pittsburgh-Post-Gazette/stories/201611280158

The Trib's diversity is nonexistent and the PG is following suit with every new hire.

They have Megan Ryan covering Penn State. Otherwise, I don't think there are any females in sports.

Every time 93.7 try to develop female on-air talent they run into locker room environment.

There was the woman who won the contest, and she was just OK on the air. Other than that, I don't recall any effort to develop female on-air talent, unless you count the young woman who did updates early on for the station, and she was legitimately terrible.

And this has WHAT to do with the Post-Gazette's hiring practices?
