A former star basketball player at DePaul University, Kustok most recently worked at Comcast SportsNet Chicago, where she was the network's Chicago Bulls, Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox and Chicago Blackhawks reporter. She anchored weekend sportscasts on WMAQ-TV (NBC) in Chicago. She joined Comcast SportsNet Chicago in 2009 as a feature reporter and occasional anchor on the network's SportsNet Central show.

Kustok, a native of Orland Park, also worked at ESPN as an analyst and sideline reporter on its men's and women's college basketball telecasts, and as sideline reporter for its college and high school football telecasts.

"Sarah has proven herself to be extremely versatile throughout her career and has excelled at a wide variety of assignments," said John J. Filippelli, president of Production and Programming at YES. "Sarah has talent, personality, a love of sports and a quick wit."

Kustok captained the DePaul women's basketball team her senior year, and she ranks fourth at the school in career 3-point field goal percentage and 10th in career 3-point field goals made.

She graduated from DePaul in 2004 with a degree in Communication/Media Studies, and received her Master's Degree in Multi Cultural and Corporate Communication from DePaul in 2005.
