As previously tipped on ALL ACCESS (NET NEWS, 2/7), WAYNE HAGIN is the choice to replace TOM MCCARTHY on NEW YORK METS radio broadcasts on CBS Sports WFAN-A/NEW YORK. HAGIN, the former voice of several teams, including the OAKLAND A'S, SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS, CHICAGO WHITE SOX, COLORADO ROCKIES, and, most recently, the ST. LOUIS CARDINALS, said, "What a thrill it is to come to NEW YORK to join HOWIE ROSE for WFAN's radio broadcast of the METS. With the excitement of the team in its final year at SHEA, it’s a privilege to be a part of it."
"It’s a real coup for us to have WAYNE join HOWIE in the broadcast booth for METS games this year," said WFAN VP/Programming MARK CHERNOFF. "We look forward to WAYNE and HOWIE teaming up to form the marquee radio play-by-play tandem for the best fans in the nation’s premier baseball market."
"WAYNE is an exceptional talent and we are pleased that he is bringing his experience and knowledge to the radio broadcasts on THE FAN," said METS EVP/Business Operations DAVE HOWARD. "We take great pride in the radio broadcasts, which throughout our history have been among the best in Major League Baseball. The addition of WAYNE, joining HOWIE, advances the rich tradition of first-class radio broadcasts."
MCCARTHY exited the METS booth after last season to return to PHILADELPHIA as part of the PHILLIES broadcast crew this season.
