12:30 am: Casey Stern is expected to be the new pre- and and post-game host for Mets radio broadcasts, according to multiple sources (Capital New York, Fed. 11).
I hope this is true. Stern is a good guy and a smart and passionate Mets fan, who actually got his start winning a contest with the old MLB Radio. I met him a long time ago when I interned there. He now does terrific work hosting a show on MLB Network Radio with SiriusXM. He's a perfect choice and a great way to get the broadcast team a bit younger, while further adding to what is essentially a team of Mets fans broadcasting Mets games. I like it!
8:30 pm: Josh Lewin will join Howie Rose in the booth, according to sources (Rubin, Feb. 11).
6:22 am: Jeff Wilpon and the Mets would like to have ex-player in the booth, according to people familiar with the process (Capital New York, Jan. 27). WOR had been planning to speak with Cliff Floyd and Darryl Hamilton to fill the role (Puma, Jan. 20).
Eddie Coleman is believed to be staying at WFAN, where he will continue as the network's on-air beat reporter.
