"It was tough. For every advertising sponsor that I brought in, I had a million rejections. I just persevered and ended up interviewing everybody from Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams, Hank Aaron to Wilt Chamberlain. The journey has been incredible, but I learned on the fly in a lot of ways."

"Sports Innerview was the cable show that I did for 17 years, which I was able to syndicate on all these sports cable networks around the country and that's this show that I went out and sold. MSG Network said, 'Ann we love your work. We hear you on FAN. We see your byline. We can give you a time slot every week on WFAN, but we can't pay you.' So I went knocking down doors on Madison Avenue trying to get meetings with advertising executives and and they looked at me like I had three heads. Like. 'Wait you're a woman and you want to host a sports show?'"

- Ann Liguori, President of Ann Liguori Productions, Inc.
