MILWAUKEE, Wisc. (WLUC) - Lisa Byington is making history as the Milwaukee Bucks’ new play-by-play television broadcaster. The Bucks announced the hiring Wednesday and said Byington is the first woman to work as a full-time television play-by-play announcer for any major men’s professional sports team. Byington replaces Jim Paschke. Paschke retired after 35 seasons as the team’s main television play-by-play broadcaster. Byington became the first female play-by-play broadcaster for the NCAA men’s basketball tournament earlier this year.
