Rosalyn "Ros" Gold-Onwude (born April 28, 1987) is a basketball analyst who calls games for Pac-12 Network, and the WNBA's New York Liberty on MSG. Nicknamed Ros, she was previously a reporter for the Golden State Warriors and the San Francisco 49ers. Gold-Onwude is a Stanford University graduate with a BA in communications and a master's degree in sociology.

Early life & playing career

Gold-Onwude was born in Queens, New York to Russian and Jewish mother Pat Gold and Nigerian father Austin Onwude.[1] She played high school basketball at Archbishop Molloy High School in Briarwood, N.Y. The team won two state titles in 2003 and 2004, but a knee injury finished her senior season early. Despite the injury, she graduated from Molloy as a highly decorated player and became the first female athlete in the program's history to play Division I basketball after accepting a scholarship to Stanford University. Gold-Onwude became Molloy's second all-time leading scorer and the all-time leader in steals and assists despite another knee injury. Later, in 2011, she was inducted into the GCHSAA Hall of Fame, another first for Molloy athlete. As a freshman, Gold-Onwude was the starting point guard for the 2005-06 Stanford team under coach Tara VanDerveer. The aforementioned second knee injury disabled and redshirted her for the entire 2006-07 season, but in 2007-08 she returned as a shooting guard. Stanford made three consecutive trips to the Final Four with Gold-Onwude on the team, and in her final season she was honored as the Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Year.

Coach VanDerveer also had another tie to Gold-Onwude's family. Ros's mother, Pat Gold, roomed with her at the University of Albany, SUNY.[2]

Broadcasting

After graduating, Gold-Onwude worked briefly for Tesla Motors before switching to sports broadcasting. She has done broadcasting for TNT, Pac-12 Network and MSG, in addition to doing play-by-play for the WNBA's New York Liberty.[3] She also served as a sideline reporter for the Golden State Warriors from 2014-2017, and became quite well-known in that role in the Bay Area.[4] Despite being a full-time analyst, she still plays basketball. In 2011, the 5'10" point guard, whose father was born in Nigeria, found herself invited to play for the Nigerian national team and accepted after consulting with ESPN.[5] She is recognized as a leader among women sportscasters, and has said, "As a woman of color in sports broadcasting, I want to do good work and have a positive, visible influence"; and, "I hope other young women will look at what I'm doing and realize they too could have a career in sports media if they desire."[4]

On September 1, 2017, Gold-Onwude announced that she would be leaving NBC Sports Bay Area and accepted a job for TNT and NBA TV.[6]

In the summer of 2019, Gold-Onwude joined ESPN after TNT elected not to renew her contract. She currently is a fill-in host for First Take in the mornings.
