Kremer, who is a chief correspondent for the NFL Network, is second woman to win the award, joining Lesley Visser of CBS, who was honored in 2006.

With Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk announced as the winner of the McCann Award on Tuesday, women will receive both major media awards presented by the Hall of Fame for the first time.

The Pete Rozelle Award is presented annually by the Hall of Fame and recognizes "longtime exceptional contributions to radio and television in professional football."

Kremer will be honored at the Gold Jacket Dinner during 2018 Enshrinement Week in downtown Canton on Friday, Aug. 3. She will be presented the award at the 2018 Enshrinement Ceremony the following day in Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium.

During her career, Kremer has been recognized with numerous awards and honors, including two Emmy Awards and a Peabody Award. She was named one of the 10 greatest female sportscasters of all-time, and described by TV Guide as "among TV's best sports correspondents of either sex."

Kremer also contributes to HBO's "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel," and is co-host of "WE NEED TO TALK," the firstall-female nationally televised weekly sports show on CBS.

Her broadcast career began at NFL Films, where from 1984-89 she served as a producer, director and later an on-air reporter for the nationally syndicated show, "This is the NFL."

While at NFL Films, Kremer also was a contributing reporter to the Philadelphia Eagles pregame show on WIP-AM in Philadelphia.

Kremer later joined ESPN and was the network's Los Angeles-based correspondent, providing in-depth reports for "SportsCenter," "Sunday NFL Countdown" and "Monday Night Countdown," among other studio shows.

Later, she was a reporter for NBC Sports and for five seasons was the sideline and feature reporter for the Emmy Award-winning "Sunday Night Football." She also reported on football for the network's popular "Today" morning show.

Kremer, who graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Pennsylvania, has worked more than 25 Super Bowls, covered the NBA Finals and All-Star Games, Major League Baseball's All-Star Game and League Championship Series, college football bowl games, Stanley Cup Playoffs and Finals, NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, U.S. Olympic basketball trials, the PGA Championship and the Olympic Games.

The City of Brotherly Love native was inducted into the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame in 2017.
