From Larry Mahoney of the Bangor Daily News: Pelkey on fast track with ESPN
When Andrea Pelkey played for the Nokomis High School girls basketball team, there were times she would take a quick shower after the game and then do the play-by-play for the Nokomis boys game for the cable access channel.

The Newport-based school received broadcasting equipment prior to her sophomore year, she explained.

“I had no idea what I was going to do [for a profession] and then they started this broadcast team at Nokomis so I figured I’d give that a try,” said Pelkey.

“I found my niche,” she added. “I thought this was something I could see myself doing.”
