Locker Room Talk: Drone Racing League President Rachel Jacobson

After 21 years working in the NBA, Rachel Jacobson became one of the only female presidents in sports when she took the position at the Drone Racing League. Making the presidency what she wants it to be, DRL prioritizes bringing females into the sport while also recognizing that content and social media are the backbone of their business. 

In this episode of Locker Room Talk with Julie Alexandria and Jennifer Mercedes, Jacobson describes her journey and deems the mentors who influenced her life as “game changers.” Taking on an emerging market in the sports space at DRL, Jacobson is setting the precedent of a winning culture of inclusion and paying it forward. 

Locker Room Talk is a weekly show highlighting the achievements of women and Latinas in sports. Hosted by Julie Alexandria and Jennifer Mercedes, two Latinas with more than 20 years of sports industry reporting experience, the show celebrates women in all aspects of the sports world by recognizing their contributions and the barriers they have overcome in their journeys. New episodes of Locker Room Talk debut every Wednesday on La Vida Baseball social channels.
