The Sixers have a new addition to their broadcast team - former Drexel University standout Malik Rose. Rose also played for several NBA teams after being drafted by the Charlotte Hornets in the second round of the 1996 draft.

Rose will join Zumoff for all Sixers broadcasts. Zumoff, who won his 13th Emmy this year, enters his 18th season as the Sixers television play-by-play announcer and his 30th as a part of the 76ers broadcast team. Marakovits is in her second season as a sideline reporter for the Sixers and this season she will cover the team both at home and on the road. Eric Snow has relinquished his role as color analyst for the 76ers to spend with time with his family in Atlanta.

 

Rose is a Philly guy, and was clearly excited about the opportunity. I like the move as well. Adding more personality to the broadcast that has Philadelphia roots is always a solid choice. Once again, the Sixers and CEO Adam Aron are trying to bring back the passion that people once had for Sixers basketball.

“This is a dream come true to be a part of the broadcast team for not only one of the most storied franchises in the NBA, but also my hometown team,” said Rose. “Growing up in Philadelphia, I know the fans are passionate about the Sixers and I will bring the same passion to the broadcast.”
