“Our new 95.7 The Game lineup brings a unique combination of passion, energy, enthusiasm and experience to an already accomplished radio station and will allow us to better serve our listeners,” said Gregory Nemitz, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Entercom San Francisco. “Kate Scott has continued to demonstrate that she is a rising star in the format and will excel with Bonta [Hill] and [Joe] Shasky in mornings.”
“As a lifelong Bay Area sports fan, getting to help launch a new morning show covering the teams I grew up cheering for in one of the greatest cities in the world is truly a dream come true,” said Scott. “I know I speak for all of us when I say we are incredibly grateful for this opportunity and cannot wait to get started.”
Kate Scott is an Emmy Award-winning broadcaster who most recently spent the last five years in a variety of roles with the Pac-12 Networks. Scott served as a play-by-play announcer for multiple men’s and women’s collegiate sports, as well as a reporter, studio anchor, public address announcer, and host of the award-winning features show “Our Stories.” The first woman to call an NFL game on the radio, first woman to call football for the Pac-12 Networks, and play-by-play announcer for the first all-female NHL broadcast in the United States, Scott also previously spent six years as the first full-time female voice on Bay Area sports radio at KNBR.
