Wow, you did a lot of homework! Dig the graphs and charts. Great to see the trend shifting.

The apples-to-apples Final Four comparisons are most illuminating. The same will be true in tennis tournaments and Olympics coverage where both men and women are competing in the same venues.

The overall sports page comparison is slightly less revealing due to the fact that (in Los Angeles for example) the Lakers with Lebron and the Dodgers with Ohtani will always dominate coverage. Would be interesting to know how the stats would shift if such traditional hometown faves were excluded. Not that I expect you to do that research...you've done plenty!....but just throwing it out there as a factor that probably skews the totals a bit.
