Andrea Kirby was not a professional athlete. She had no connections in the television industry. But, in 1971 this single mother talked her way onto a start-up television station as a sportscaster. This first break led to a bigger one in sports-rich Baltimore. Here she made an impression on a network producer who hired her. As the first full-time female reporter in ABC Sports history, Kirby was a regular on College Scoreboard and Wide World of Sports with the world as her office. Heartbreakingly, the dream ended, and the single mother went into survival mode.
