The leadership of the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation (AWMF) is tapping ESPN SportsCenter anchor Hannah Storm to host the 47th Annual Gracie Awards Luncheon scheduled for June 22 in New York City. The Gracie Awards recognize exemplary content created by, for and about women in all facets of media and entertainment.

“Throughout the past year, we have seen a number of remarkable projects by and about inspiring women and Hannah Storm will be the perfect host to recognize their work,” said Heather Cohen, President of the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation.

“We are honored to shine the spotlight on these women, whose stories sparked cultural awareness, provided entertainment that made us laugh, cry and everything in between. We are excited to return to an in-person format so that we can properly celebrate together,” added Becky Brooks, President of the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation.

In addition to being the SportsCenter anchor, Storm is a five-time Gracie winner herself. She is an award-winning journalist, a pioneer in sports broadcasting for women, the founder of Brainstormin’ Productions, the president of the Hannah Storm Foundation which funds surgeries for children with vascular abnormalities, and a published author.

In addition to anchoring various editions of SportsCenter, Storm has co-hosted many of the network’s signature events including: Wimbledon, US Open, NBA Finals, New York Marathon, Veteran’s Day, Super Bowl , the NCAA College Football Playoff National Championship and the Rose Parade on ABC.

Storm became the first woman in American television history to host a broadcast network’s sports series solo when she hosted NBC’s coverage of Major League Baseball, including three World Series. Since 2018, Storm and Andrea Kremer have called Thursday night NFL games for Amazon Prime.

“It’s an honor to host the Gracies and to be among the most inspiring, empowering and talented women in our business,” Storm said.
