Eastern Progress Sports Editor Zach Combest and James Mason sits down with EKU Hall of Fame football coach Roy Kidd and the first female sports editor for the Progress, Marla Ridenour. Ridenour was the first female sports reporter to be allowed into the EKU football locker room in the 1970s. She was also the first female to report on the Cleveland Browns NFL team and is in the Kentucky Journalism Hall of Fame. She was awarded the Professional Achievement Award by EKU this weekend.
