The first woman to call an NFL game on the radio, the first to call football for the Pac-12 Networks, and the play-by-play announcer for the first all-female NHL broadcast in the United States, Kate Scott continues to break barriers as a leader in sports broadcasting.
With college sports in a state of flux due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Scott returned to her radio roots in October 2020 as co-host of the new morning show on 95.7 FM “The Game” in San Francisco. You can stream “The Morning Roast” wherever you are from 6-10am PT Monday through Friday on Radio.com and its corresponding app or watch the show live on Twitch.
Previously, Scott spent six years as the first full-time female voice on the Bay Area’s KNBR 680-AM. During her time at KNBR, Scott spent three seasons as the television sideline reporter for the San Jose Earthquakes, winning an Emmy for her work. She also spent a season as the television sideline for the San Jose Giants, called high school football for the Comcast Hometown Network, and anchored Saturday night sports for NBC Bay Area.
Those gigs led to a five year tenure at the Pac-12 Networks, where Scott did it all. From calling football, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s soccer, volleyball, and softball, to reporting for everything from rowing to rugby – including the Pac-12 Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments and a pair of Women’s Final Fours – to studio anchoring and hosting the award-winning features show “Pac-12 Our Stories.” Scott continues to call games for the Networks, the West Coast Conference, Stadium, and NBC Sports in 2021.
In addition to radio and television, Kate’s done voice and podcast work for over a decade. From voicing and producing the TechCrunch podcast for Stitcher Radio, to voicing spots for Bank of the West and a short film for Beat The Streets LA, to stadium public address announcing for the Pac-12 Football Championship Game and the Foster Farms Bowl, Kate feels the demands of and knowledge gained from her voice work have and continue to make her a better broadcaster.
Born in Fresno, California and raised in nearby Clovis, California, Scott earned her bachelor’s degree in communications from UC Berkeley. She currently resides in the San Francisco Bay Area.
