Minnesota Native’s Song Opens WNBA National Broadcasts

Written by on June 21, 2024

You can attribute the growing popularity of the WNBA to a couple of factors. Notable talent bringing the level of play to a higher level and more exposure to the product.

CBS has been airing WNBA games nationwide for awhile now and a Minnesota-Born musician’s song has been chosen to play before their games.

Emily Bjorke has had an extensive background in music. Between writing her own material, performing in bands and producing for a Twin Cities company, this is not new.

According to CBS News, she found out her song was picked while she was sitting on her couch.

From her Los Angeles couch back in May, she heard her music on national TV. It just so happened to be for a match of her hometown team — the Minnesota Lynx taking the New York Liberty.

“I was on top of the world. I actually said I would cut my hair off if I got it because I wanted it so bad,” Bjorke said. “And my hair is up, but it’s cut off. I’m a little bit intense like that.”

Her work has turned her into a fan of the game, and she hopes it does the same for others.
