Aliyah Boston is taking her talents to the studio.

After a record-breaking rookie season in the WNBA, Boston is joining Peacock as an in-studio analyst for Big Ten basketball games this season. This will be Boston’s first time in the studio after she graduated from South Carolina and was drafted first overall to the WNBA earlier this year.

She was a standout in college, winning a national championship with the Gamecocks and being named National Player of the Year in 2022. Boston was the unanimous pick for WNBA Rookie of the Year after an All-Star debut season with the Indiana Fever.

Now, the 21-year-old will join Carolyn Manno and Meghan McKeown in the booth for college basketball games. A total of 22 women’s basketball games are set to be aired on Peacock exclusively this season.

“Super excited to be a part of this team,” Boston wrote on social media. “God is good.”

Boston isn’t the first player to have a career on air while playing in the WNBA. Los Angeles Sparks forward Chiney Ogwumike and Sparks guard Lexie Brown, among others, currently work in broadcasting. Ogwumike serves as a studio analyst on NBA Today and ESPN, while Brown is an analyst for ACC Network.
