My journey as 49ers Fangirl began on January 14, 1990 when my family and I attended the 1989 NFC Championship game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Los Angeles Rams. A native Angeleno, in the middle of the second quarter, I turned to my mom and declared, “I love Joe Montana.” The rest is history!
I created Fangirl Sports Network with the intention of building a digital community for female sports fans that delivers weekly news updates, commentary about professional teams, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at accomplished women making waves in our industry. Although I started as a fan, I am now a credentialed 49ers beat reporter and report from the field and the locker room, attend press conferences, attend practices and cover community outreach events. I also host a “Five Fun Facts” series with 49ers players that is exclusive to FGSN.
Every week I have the pleasure of interviewing some of the most accomplished and hard-working women in sports on my weekly podcast, “Get My Job,” and recently launched a second podcast, “The Tracy Sandler Show,” which is a sports and lifestyle podcast that will get you caught up on the top sports headlines, while adding in laughter and spice.
