Doris grew up in Manasquan, New Jersey with her seven older siblings. From an early age, Doris became interested in basketball, and looking-up to Kyle Macy and Kelly Tripucka, she started playing in the second grade as a point guard for the women team at Manasquan High School, and after matriculation earned scholarships to several eastern colleges, deciding on Providence College, Rhode Island. While in college, Doris continued to play basketball and in her senior year was named Co-Female Athlete of the Year in her college, and also led the Big East Conference in assists. She finished her education with a bachelor’s degree in health service administration/social work, but then furthered her studies, earning a master’s degree in Education.
Her career started in 1990 when she was hired as a radio analyst for women’s games for Providence College basketball team, and the same year acquired her first position on television, covering women games of the Big East Conference. After six successful years, Doris was given Big East men’s games, and then advancing in her career by becoming a part of ESPN, covering the WNBA. In 1997, she officially became the primary television and radio voice of the New York Liberty, all adding to her net worth.
Doris next became a part of the ESPN’s top men’s basketball team next to Dick Vitale, at courtside during the NBA games aired on ESPN and ABC. In 2000, she made history after she was named as the first woman commentator, for New York Knicks games both on television and radio, subsequently becoming the first woman to comment on a Big East Men’s game, and the primary commentator for men’s college basketball conference package. Doris remained focused on progressing further and in 2009 was promoted to a sideline reporter during NBA Finals for ABC Sports, which only increased her net worth, while in 2013 she signed a new contract with ESPN, which gave her a new position as NBA commentator, debuting on the 13th November on the NBA pre-game show “NBA Countdown”, next to respected analysts Avery Johnson and Jalen Rose.
Most recently, Doris has been named as the regular NBA game analyst for ESPN, thus becoming the first woman assigned to a full regular-season role in the US.
When it comes to her personal life, Doris is a mother of two children and was married to Gregg Burke. The couple married in 1989 but later divorced, and she remains single and apparently focused primarily on her career.
