We’ve been down this road several times before, even to the point when Tony Kornheiser was suspended for making cracks about Hannah Storm’s outfits. But let’s get this straight once and for all: what Storm wears on air is inappropriate and unprofessional, and I have no idea how and why she’s allowed to get away with it. Just check out her outfit from Friday night on ESPN:
We’ve seen her wear go-go boots and short skirts before and wondered how that was deemed acceptable. Those outfits were bad. But this is a flashy dress cut low at the chest and high at the thighs. It’s provocative and sends the message you’re trying to meet a sugar daddy at the bar more than trying to have intelligent conversations about NBA games.
Wearing outfits like this and having it approved does a disservice to women in broadcasting. This sort of display makes the focus on looks rather than information and it’s not okay. This isn’t even outfit watch for the sake of tuning in to see what wacky outfit Craig Sager is wearing; this is quite simply inappropriate and it should be changed.Google+
