ESPN broadcaster Beth Mowins will become the second woman to call play-by-play for an NFL game as she joins Tim Brown and Matt Millen in the booth for next month's Raiders preseason games, the team announced on Wednesday.

“Calling games for one of the premier franchises in the NFL is a real privilege, especially alongside a Hall of Famer and a four-time Super Bowl champion,” Mowins said. “The Raiders have always taken pride in being innovative and we are excited to engage with Raider Nation in what promises to be an exciting buildup to the new season.”

Mowins has called college football games for ESPN since 2005 and has been a part of the network since 1994.

Gayle Sierens was the first woman to call play-by-play for an NFL game when she called the Dec. 27, 1984 game between the Seattle Seahawks and Kansas City Chiefs.
