She has been a major player in the sector for more than 20 years and is currently employed by NBA on ESPN, NBA on ABC, College Basketball on ESPN, and College Basketball on ABC games.

Burke was raised in Manasquan, New Jersey, and was born on April 11, 1965, in West Islip, New York. He began playing basketball in the second grade. She excelled as an athlete at Manasquan High School thanks to her love of the game, and several institutions expressed interest in hiring her. Burke eventually enrolled at Providence College, where she spent four years as the point guard for the Providence Friars women's basketball team. She averaged 12.1 points and 5.3 assists per game throughout her time in college, becoming the school's all-time leader with 602 assists.
Burke was selected an All-American in 1987 as a result of her achievements as a collegiate athlete. Additionally, she was selected twice to the Big East All-Tournament and All-Big East teams. As the 2018 Curt Gowdy Media Award recipient, her groundbreaking work as a female basketball player won her a place in the Basketball Hall of Fame.
Burke graduated from college with a bachelor's degree in social work and health services management before obtaining a master's degree in education. Many women have been motivated by her accomplishments as a basketball player and her commitment to the sport to pursue jobs in the largely male-dominated field of sports broadcasting..
