Philadelphia 76ers Reportedly Hire Kate Scott As New Play-By-Play Broadcaster

Kate Scott will be the Philadelphia 76ers play-by-play broadcaster

The Philadelphia 76ers have reportedly found their replacement for longtime play-by-play commentator Marc Zumoff, who retired earlier this year after 27 seasons with the team.

Kate Scott is in line to take over next season, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

She will be the first woman in Philadelphia sports history to call games full-time in any of the four major men’s sports teams.

Scott is a California native who currently works with the Pac-12 network, where she has been since 2015.

Her resume is quite impressive, calling NHL games, college football games, and NFL games on the radio.

She has also called games for the Golden State Warriors, and over the summer, was a play-by-play commentator for a number of men’s and women’s basketball games at the Tokyo Olympics.

Scott also called games for the Copa America tournament.

Her trailblazing doesn’t start with the full-time Sixers gig.

Scott was a part of the first all-female NHL broadcast back in March.

That same month saw her participate with the first all-female Warriors broadcast.

She’s the first woman to call al Pac-12 football game for the Pac-12 network and the first woman to call an NFL game on the radio.

Kate Scott follows in the footsteps of newly hired Lisa Byington, who will be the play-by-play broadcaster for the Milwaukee Bucks this upcoming season.

The Philadelphia 76ers open up the preseason on October 4 against the Toronto Raptors.
