PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Kate Scott is the first woman to become a major pro sports play-by-play announcer in Philadelphia.

However, she brings nearly a decade of pro, college and Olympic play-by-play experience to her role at NBC Sports Philadelphia and the 76ers, often making breakthroughs on the way to the Delaware Valley.

The Sixers gave Scott the opportunity Thursday, following a summer-long search to find the successor for Marc Zumoff, who held the role for 27 years in Philly before his retirement this year.

Scott has NBA play-by-play experience as the first woman to call a Golden State Warriors game.
