Sloane Martin, a WCCO Radio news reporter, knows one day this will no longer be a story in the mainstream media.

Until then she’s OK being the poster child of the movement. Even if it makes her feel a little uncomfortable at times.

“I want to be visible in this role, not because it helps me or because I want the attention in any way; I want to be visible in this role because I know representation matters,” said Martin, who on Wednesday at Xcel Energy Center became the first woman play-by-play announcer in the history of the Minnesota boys hockey state tournament. “That’s my goal with all of this. I want there to be more along the way so that they can just do a game and not have there be anything around it.”
