Article Summary:

NBC Sports Philadelphia announced on Thursday that Kate Scott, a veteran in the sports media industry, has been hired to serve as the network’s new play-by-play broadcaster for Philadelphia 76ers games. Scott replaces Philadelphia broadcasting great Marc Zumoff, who retired at the end of the 2020-21 season after nearly 40 years as part of the team’s broadcast crew. “

Scott’s experience in broadcasting precedes her, as she has already forged a path as a female play-by-play announcer with calls of basketball games in the Tokyo Olympics, Golden State Warriors games, NHL hockey, and Pac-12 football.

Kate Scott’s first game as the Sixers’ new play-by-play announcer will come on October 4 when Philadelphia opens preseason play against the Toronto Raptors.
