Kate Scott just got a new NFL gig, but when it comes to her play-by-play role with the Sixers, she isn't going anywhere.
Announced Wednesday, Scott will be the lead play-by-play voice for the Seattle Seahawks' preseason broadcasts through August, then – per her own follow-up – will head back to Philly afterward to get going for the Sixers again.
So if you saw a tweet that made you jump at first, relax. A very key word was missing there.
They left out a fairly important word …— Kate Scott (@katetscott) June 7, 2023
New *PRESEASON announcer. 😉
Incredibly excited to spend August with the squad in Seattle! And incredibly excited to then come back home to Philly to prep for season three with the Sixers. https://t.co/BAMVMVH5XH
She was hired as the Sixers' next play-by-play broadcaster ahead of the 2021-22 season, which tasked her with the impossible of having to succeed longtime voice Marc Zumoff, but she's since grown into her own in the role and will continue to do so heading into year 3 with the team.
So more "Bang! Bang! Georges Niang!" calls to come, provided of course the Sixers can re-sign him.
