Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic announced the hiring of Lawson on Wednesday. A longtime ESPN game and studio analyst, Lawson will continue to contribute on that network along with working Wizards games.

Lawson in 2007 became the first female analyst for a nationally televised NBA game. The 36-year-old is a Washington-area native who went to the Final Four three times at the University of Tennessee and won an Olympic gold medal at the 2008 Olympics.

Phil Chenier, who had Lawson’s job the past 33 years, will be a second analyst for some games and do pre- and postgame work. Ex-NBA player Drew Gooden also joins the network for some games.

Lose her how? The NBA and WNBA seasons do not coincide with each other.

I think, in order to be good at one, attention to the other suffers. We saw it with Doris Burke- she didn't have the time (or possibly the inclination, but I have a higher opinion of her professionalism than that) to do her research and get her details straight. Her WBB work suffered for it. Same to a lesser extent with RosGo.

Lawson hasn't been working on the WNBA anyway, though. I can't blame her for aiming higher, both in terms of profile and pay packet. I don't think I've heard enough of her as a colour analyst to know whether I think she's any good. Hopefully she's better than Doris Burke, who recently got a regular NBA gig as well.

She will be working WBB for ESPN still once they figure it all out.

She's much better than Doris.

watching the wnba pregame/halftime in-studio analysis during the playoffs has been so depressing.Kara would be a major upgrade.
