Tomorrow's edition of KIRO 7 Eyewitness News Profiles will feature Force 10 Hoops L.L.C., the Storm's ownership group. Tune in to KIRO 7 at 10 p.m. Saturday to see interviews with the members of Force 10 Hoops and more. Here's how KIRO describes the segment in a press release:
A similar dedication—to Seattle and to women’s professional sports—was the driving force behind Force 10 Hoops, a Seattle group that formed to convince the new SuperSonics owner that the Seattle Storm should stay in the city. In contrast to the drama that publicly unfolded for the Sonics, Lisa Brummel, Ginny Gilder, Anne Levinson and Dawn Trudeau—the local women who comprise Force 10—worked quietly to keep the Storm from hitting the Midwest. They talk with KIRO 7 Eyewitness News anchor Margo Myers about their game plan.To see extended versions of the interviews and for more information, check out the Eyewitness News Profiles site on KIRO7.com.
In an industry dominated by men and filled with disgruntled players and disillusioned fans, the four women share their determination to develop a nurturing, cooperative and winning environment for everyone involved.
