Television sports reporter and host Lindsay McCormick took to Instagram late Tuesday and wrote that an NFL Network executive asked if she would "plan on getting knocked up" if she was hired.
Her post comes a day after Hall of Fame running back Marshall Faulk and two other NFL Network analysts were suspended amid numerous sexual harassment allegations made by a former wardrobe stylist at the network in an amended wrongful termination lawsuit.
"I've been quiet about this for too long," McCormick wrote. "In my last interview with NFL Network a few years ago, the head of hiring talent said to me, 'If we hire you, do you plan on getting knocked up immediately like the rest of them?'" 'Them' as in badass working women who deserve to have a family life as well? 'Them' as the women who work their tails off to be taken seriously in a man's world? Or 'them' who bring you a new audience and a tremendous amount of viewership? Because while I don't plan on 'getting knocked up,' I do plan on being like the rest of those brilliant women that our future daughters will one day look up to and see you can have it all."
McCormick tagged women's rights icon Gloria Steinem, ESPN broadcaster Samantha Ponder, model Emily Ratajkowski, former ESPN sideline reporter Britt McHenry, sports broadcaster Michelle Joy Phelps and the BG Sports Enterprises Inc. sports agency in the post.
Earlier Tuesday, McHenry said on Twitter she was "not surprised in the slightest about one of the names in the NFL Network sexual harassment allegation."
Beyond Faulk, the lawsuit also claimed two current NFL Network analysts Ike Taylor and Heath Evans of improper conduct along with former network analysts and NFL players Donovan McNabb, Warren Sapp and Eric Davis.
ESPN announced Tuesday that McNabb and Davis were suspended pending an investigation into the claims.
The lawsuit also claimed Eric Weinberger, a former executive producer at NFL Network who is now top executive at Bill Simmons' media group, "pressed his crotch against" Cantor and made made several sexually suggestive comments. The Ringer, Simmons' company, announced Tuesday it had suspended Weinberger.
Cantor said she voiced her concerns to Marc Watts, who worked as NFL Network's talent coordinator until 2015, about the unwanted sexual advances and comments "numerous times" and he "did nothing."
McCormick didn't identify the NFL Network manager who made the comment or when the interview was conducted.
"Kudos to NFL Network for eventually removing this man from his position and for the actions they've taken this week," McCormick wrote.
A message left with NFL Network late Tuesday night by USA TODAY Sports was not immediately returned.
