ABC NewsRadio sports broadcaster Debbie Spillane said Gayle's comments were a setback for female reporters working in sport.

"I think if you looked at the expression on Mel McLaughlin's face and the reactions from just about every female sports journalist on Twitter last night you could see that it wasn't fun from the perspective of the woman who was in the position and the women who have been in that kind of position and imagine how it felt," said Spillane, who was the first female sports broadcaster hired by the ABC.

Debbie Spillane - a woman who knows her sport

Date: 16 June 2009
The 'gutsy broad' who became the ABC's first full-time female sports broadcaster will visit Maitland on Friday 19 June as a guest presenter in the popular Look Who's Talking programme.
Regarded as a trailblazer for women, Debbie Spillane was running a record shop and singing in a band when she was hired in 1983 as a rookie sports reporter at 2GB. Best known both as sideline reporter on ABC-TV's rugby league and for her role as Sportsbitch in the iconic Live and Sweaty, Spillane is also well known as a former Triple J personality and media manager for the Bulldogs.
In her book, Where Do You Think You're Goin' Lady, Spillane shares an extraordinary range of incredible sporting moments. With funny and fascinating tales of sports media, athletes and officials, she takes us behind the scenes at the Olympic Games, the Commonwealth Games, and into individual sports, including athletics, basketball, cricket and rugby league.
"Debbie Spillane is a woman who is passionate about sport", said City Librarian, Keryl Collard. "She has conveyed her passion to avid listeners and viewers for over 20 years. We are very excited to bring her to Maitland, where she has many local fans."
Spillane grew up in a family where sport was king - from babyhood she accompanied her father to their weekly religious attendance of the rugby league match of the day at the Sydney Cricket Ground, by primary school she was sharing her grandfather's obsession with horseracing, and in high school she became a qualified cricket umpire and acquired a rugby league coaching certificate.
She has also worked as a sports columnist and currently works on ABC NewsRadio as a sport and occasional news presenter.
Debbie Spillane is presented by Maitland City Library. She will appear Friday 19 June at the Belmore Hotel.
