Burke has called NBA games for ESPN since Disney first broadcasted Association contests in 2003. Per the AP, Burke became the first woman to become a full-time network NBA game analyst in 2017.
The former Providence College basketball star led the Big East in assists during her first year and made the conference's first team during her senior year and the second team during her junior season. She also earned all-tournament team nods twice.
Burke finished her collegiate career with 602 assists, which had stood as a school record. She scored 1,372 points and made the Kodak District I All-America team in 1987.
The widely revered Burke has been honored with numerous awards over the years, including the Basketball Hall of Fame's Curt Gowdy Media Award (2018) and the NCAA Silver Anniversary Award (2012). She is also a member of the New England Basketball Hall of Fame and Providence College Hall of Fame.
She will join a radio team alongside Marc Kestecher and Jon Barry.
