Chat with WNBA president Donna Orender


WNBA president Donna Orender was a star as a player before becoming an executive.
Welcome to The Show! On Wednesday, WNBA president Donna Orender will stop by to chat about the state of her league as well as this weekend's all-star game.

On Sunday, Washington, D.C. hosts the eighth annual WNBA All-Star game (3:30 p.m. ET, ABC). The Eastern Conference won last year's game, played at Madison Square Garden in New York, by a score of 98-82. Five players from the Connecticut Sun helped the East to its first all-star game win. Katie Douglas and her 16 points earned her the game's MVP trophy.

Orender took over the reigns of the WNBA in 2005, following the resignation of Val Ackerman, the league's first president. Orender played in all three seasons of the Women's Pro Basketball League in the late 70s, one of only 20 women to have played in all three seasons. She spent 17 years with the PGA Tour, becoming the Senior Vice President of Strategic Development in the Office of the Commissioner in 2001. Orender played her college basketball, even being named an All-American at Queens College, from where she graduated in 1978.
