SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Jazz will have an all-women broadcast on AT&T Sports Network on Friday when they host the Los Angeles Clippers.

The broadcast will include several familiar names for basketball fans in the state of Utah, including Holly Rowe who has served as an analyst for the Jazz throughout the season.

Former Utah Starzz players Natalie Williams and Jennifer Azzi will also accompany Rowe as analysts for the game.

Krista Blunk will take over for Craig Bolerjack as the play-by-play voice for the Jazz. Blunk is a regular play-by-play voice for the PAC-12 Network, ESPN, and Westwood One.

Rowe is a television veteran but has strong ties to the state of Utah. The longtime ESPN reporter attended Brigham Young University and the University of Utah before starting at the sports giant in 1997.

Former BYU Cougars basketball star Kristen Kozlowski will also join Rowe, Williams, and Azzi as an analyst on the broadcast.

Nayo Campbell who works for the Jazz digital team and is a regular for in-game entertainment will be the reporter for the broadcast.

Williams averaged 15.4 points and 9.7 rebounds in four seasons for the Starzz between 1999 and 2002.

Azzi spent three of her five WNBA seasons in Utah and averaged 9.2 and 5.3 assists between 2000 and 2002.

Not Jazz First All-Women Broadcast

Though Friday’s game will be the first women-led local broadcast, it’s not the Jazz’s first all-women broadcast this season.

In February ESPN rolled out their first all-women broadcast both in front of and behind the camera.

Beth Mowins, Doris Burke, and Lisa Salters led the ESPN broadcast on-air while 33 other women worked behind the scenes to produce the game.

After the game, Jazz star Donovan Mitchell praised ESPN’s female-led broadcast crew.

“It’s great to be able to put that on the national level, the national stage, influencing young ladies around the country and around the world,” Mitchell said.
