The Next Mets Radio Guy

I've got to admit I'm not crazy about the new Mets radio announcer, Wayne Hagin. He just doesn't sound right especially after all the years of Gary Cohen and his sound-alike Tom McCarthy.

Maybe our next broadcaster will be a grad of this great camp I came across and have actually had the privilege of witnessing. Bruce Beck, of WNBC, and Ian Eagle, who does the Nets & CBSSports, are in their 7th year running a broadcasting camp for teens.

The kids do mock interviews, prepare scripts and even do play-by-play of the Sussex Skyhawks. The highlight of the week is a press conference with Yogi Berra since the camp is hosted at the Yogi Berra Museum.

The Mets old sideline guy Matt Loughlin even coaches the kids. If you know of anyone who might be interested, check it out at
