Laura McKeeman is leaving the Rays broadcast team for a bigger role with Fox Sports.
The reigning Miss Florida, who worked on the Rays pre- and post-game shows, is joining Fox Sports’ national college basketball and football package. She will begin by working Pac 12 basketball games.
“I have loved my time working with the Rays and I am so thankful for the opportunities Fox Sports Florida has given me,“ McKeeman said. “I will always have fond memories of my time at Tropicana Field and the crumb cake from the press box dining room.”
