More About the Book

In "My Life with the Green & Gold: Tales from 20 Years of Sportscasting," Jessie Garcia, one of the first female sportscasters in the Midwest, shares behind-the-microphone moments from her decades covering Wisconsin teams, including the Green Bay Packers. The veteran sportscaster, sideline reporter and former host of the Mike McCarthy Show provides personal, and oftentimes hilarious, insights on her career. She brings readers to the sidelines at Lambeau Field, inside the locker room, aboard the Packers bus, and into the host's chair. Garcia also shares stories about other Wisconsin teams and athletes she's covered, from the Badgers and Brewers to Wisconsin Olympians.
