The NFL will have a female official working regular season games for the first time this season, but Sarah Thomas will be making a stop on Thursday’s edition of PFT Live before she gets to the field.
Thomas will join Mike Florio to talk about how she worked her way into position to be considered for a spot in the NFL and how it feels to get the call from the big leagues as well as how it feels to be the first woman to get the call. Thomas will serve as a line judge next season after working in the collegiate ranks for Conference USA.
Florio will also have Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on the show to discuss the latest on the Steelers. They’ll talk needs in the draft, Ben Roethlisberger’s new contract, Troy Polamalu’s future and more during the visit.
We also want to hear from PFT Planet. Email questions at any time via the O’Reilly Auto Parts Ask the Pros inbox or get in touch on Twitter at @ProFootballTalk to let us know what’s on your mind.
It all gets started at noon ET and you can listen to all three hours live via the various NBC Sports Radio affiliates, through the links at PFT, or with the NBC Sports Radio app. You can also watch a simulcast of the first hour of the show by clicking right here.
