December 16, 1987|United Press International

CHICAGO — A local TV news anchor from Tampa, Fla., will become the first woman in broadcasting history to do play-by-play for an NFL game next week, NBC Sports Executive Producer Michael Weisman said today. Gayle Sierens will handle play-by-play of the game at Kansas City, Mo., between the Chiefs and Seattle Seahawks. The game will be seen by about 10% of the country in 28 markets in the states of Washington, Oregon, Kansas, Oklahoma, parts of California, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois and Iowa. Sierens, who has never done football play-by-play professionally, has done "practice" games in the past month.
