March 19, 2021 (Brooklyn, N.Y.) – The National Women’s Hockey League, in association with NBC Sports, today announced the on-air talent for the Isobel Cup playoffs, presented by Discover, featuring Kate Scott calling play-by-play, AJ Mleczko as an analyst, and Caley Chelios as a rink-side reporter. The all-female on-air broadcast team will be on-site at Warrior Ice Arena in Brighton, Massachusetts, on March 26 and 27 for the Isobel Cup semifinals and championship final on NBCSN.
“We can’t wait to drop the puck in Boston and showcase the NWHL like never before,” said NWHL Commissioner Tyler Tumminia. “Our partnership with NBC Sports is monumental for the visibility of our league and the all-female presence of Kate Scott, AJ Mleczko, and Caley Chelios will deliver a memorable experience for American television viewers and our athletes who are ready to put their skill and resiliency on full display as they compete to raise the Isobel Cup.”
Scott has been a leader in sports broadcasting, becoming the first woman to call an NFL game on the radio, the first to call football for the Pac-12 Networks, and as the play-by-play announcer for the first all-female NHL broadcast in the United States on NBCSN. Previously, Scott spent six years as the first full-time female voice on the Bay Area’s KNBR 680-AM, winning an Emmy for her work, and five years at the Pac-12 Networks. Scott continues to call games for the Networks, the West Coast Conference, Stadium, and NBC Sports and co-hosts “The Game” on 95.7 FM in San Francisco.
