Zaloumis, otherwise known as the female Hugh Millen, has been an icon on the Seattle airwaves since 2008. She recently gave birth to a son in September, and it is currently unknown as to where her career path will go from here.
A fixture on Mariners telecasts in each of the past two seasons, Zaloumis has been a roving reporter for FSN, providing on-field insight as well as studio analysis.
Upon returning from maternity leave in November, Zaloumis’ role with the station appeared to be in limbo. She was recently spotted as a sideline reporter for the 2009 High School State Football Championships at the Tacoma Dome, a veritable step down from the work she did prior to spawning a baby.
In winters past, Zaloumis had played a larger role in FSN’s college basketball broadcasts, something she has not done as frequently this year.
Though many fans, Seattle Sportsnet included, will sincerely lament Zaloumis’ departure, we can only hope that she will find her way to a place that better utilizes her talents. Clearly, that wasn’t being done at FSN, and it’s time that this butterfly flew from the coop and blossomed.
We leave with you this piece of reporting from Zaloumis, as she discusses what it’s like to work the two-hole with Russell Branyan.
