Get Stephanie Ready back in the booth

This petition had 446 supporters

After two years in the broadcast booth with Dell Curry and Eric Collins for the FOX Sports Southeast broadcast of Charlotte Hornets' games, Stephanie Ready was removed from the broadcast booth prior to the 2017-18 season. FOX Sports Southeast made the call to move Ready back to her former role as a Sideline Reporter. 

FOX Sports Southeast senior vice president Jeff Genthner claimed that moving Ready courtside was an effort to overcome the television location being off the floor but after the first few games this season, it was clear that wasn't the case as Stephanie saw significantly less time on the call. Given her expertise and experience, Ready did not deserve to be demoted.

Many fans and NBA media members have called for Stephanie to be moved back into the booth alongside Curry and Collins where she thrived as an analyst from 2015-2017. The trio has become fan favorites because of their great chemistry. The hashtag "#DontSidelineStephReady" has gained a tremendous amount of momentum on social media.

Only a couple games into the season, Hornets' fans already miss Stephanie's insight on the broadcast. Ready deserves to be in the broadcast booth as an analyst for FOX Sports Southeast covering the Charlotte Hornets.
