Weiss was the first female to be hired as an intern in the Eagles’ PR department. Then a full-time job became available after a college internship at PRISM. “I started my career in sports cable television, and it’s been an amazing run,” she says.

Weiss started with Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia as a marketing coordinator six weeks before the launch of the network, which is celebrating its 15th anniversary on air this month. “I’m one of the original employees,” she says. “It was amazing at the age of 27 to be part of a start-up business.”

Weiss has since advanced to vice president of marketing at the station. “I’ve had this tremendous opportunity for growth,” she says. “Now, I’m trying to pay it forward and show the women in my department a positive female role model.”
