MayorsManor Live Radio with Helene Elliott of the LA Times

Helene Elliott LA Times

Although it’s commonplace today, there was a time not that long ago when female reports weren’t allowed in the locker rooms of major sports teams in North America. In fact, when Helene Elliott started covering the action, it wasn’t uncommon for her to be completely shut out of post-game interviews.

Despite the myriad of challenges and numerous roadblocks, she persevered and became a true pioneer. Along the way she’s covered the dozens of Stanley Cup Finals and multiple Olympics, but her crowning achievement may have been in 2005 when she was the first female journalist to receive the Elmer Ferguson Memorial Award at the Hockey Hall of Fame.

She’s been on the MayorsManor show before – including live from St. Louis during the Kings-Blues playoff series this past April – and today she returns to talk about the Hall of Fame and the current NHL lockout.

We’ll touch on past NHL greats like Cam Neely, Pavel Bure, Mats Sundin, Joe Sakic, Jeremy Roenick and Eric Lindros. Plus, we’ll get into why she’s fired up about the work stoppage and when she thinks it might end.

So, sit back and enjoy – it’s a hockey conversation and a history lesson all rolled into one…
