ESPN has added a new female play-by-play voice to its college football line-up, while the first has received what appears to be a demotion.
Beth Mowins will call midweek college football games for ESPN and ESPN2 during the upcoming 2010-11 season, alongside David Norrie and Robert Smith. Mowins is the network’s second female college football play-by-play voice, with Pam Ward being the first.
Speaking of Ward, the play-by-play voice has been bumped from ESPN2. After working the Noon ET game on ESPN2 last season, she will call afternoon games on ESPNU alongside newcomer Danny Kanell.
Ward has called college football games for ESPN for ten years.
Replacing Ward on the ESPN2 telecast is Bob Wischusen, who will call those games alongside Brian Griese.
