Bram Weinstein

As the Voice of the Washington Commanders since 2020 & the host of the Bram Weinstein Show, Weinstein is a native of the DMV with decades of experience as a trusted sports media personality, including time as a SportsCenter anchor.

“I think there is a high level of responsibility in doing [this broadcast], and I take that responsibility very seriously. This isn’t my broadcast; this is the fans’ broadcast. I am here to tell their story in the best way possible.”

Gaby Vincent

Vincent played in the NWSL for four seasons before retiring after playing with the Washington Spirit in 2022. At the collegiate level, she was a standout at the University of Louisville and now works at the DC Mayor’s Office of LGBTQ Affairs.

“I mean how often do you get to do ESPN Radio for a team that you used to play for? A team that you grew up with as a child, going to their games, watching all these people thinking they are my heroes. I feel like this is a dream come true.”

Mike Minnich

As one of the foremost authorities on Washington Spirit and NWSL history, Minnich brings a wealth of experience and intimate knowledge of the team to the broadcast. Minnich broadcasted Washington Freedom (WPS) matches in 2010 and acted as the first-ever television broadcaster for the Washington Spirit in 2013. He has experience in both play-by-play and color commentary roles at the collegiate and professional level.

“I think we’re going to get people that are passionate about the sport that want to see the Spirit grow, that want to see the Spirit succeed. I think that’s going to come through in what we do as well.”
