During his time at ESPN, Sciambi also worked as the studio host on site for ESPN Radio’s coverage of the World Series and gave post-match interviews for SportsCenter on site. He has also taken on play-by-play assignments for college and the Little League World Series.
Sciambi joined ESPN in 2005 when he began playing play-by-play for select college basketball and MLB games.
Sciambi was also the lead play-by-play television announcer for the Atlanta Braves from 2007 to 2009 and the radio voice for the Florida Marlins from 1997 to 2004.
While Sciambi calls Cubs games for Marquee Sports Network, he will continue to act as the multi-platform broadcaster for ESPN.
