ABC-6 Columbus

Luke Fedlam, leader of Porter Wright's Sports Law practice, was interviewed by ABC-6 in Columbus for the article, "NIL deals for female athletes prove to be even more important amidst salary gap debate," published April 22, 2024.

"There is a significant discrepancy when it comes to the WNBA and the NBA," Fedlam said. "But we have to understand where that comes from. There is a significant amount of media dollars that go into the NBA vs. the WNBA. Women's basketball is so hot right now so as you can imagine, as things continue to grow, the next media deal that the WNBA gets is going to be significant. But it is shocking when you first see just numbers comparing the two leagues."
