With the Mets switching to WOR after a more than two decade long affiliation with WFAN, the exact makeup of the broadcast team remains in flux.
Howie Rose will be shifting over to WOR as the main play-by-play man, but the radio station was apparently reluctant to bring Rose back at first. They wanted to “shake things up.” It would’ve been monumentally stupid on the part of WOR to not bring Rose over, and Bob Raissman of the Daily News reported that “Mets brass” got involved with the situation – basically saving WOR from themselves.
Raissman reports that well liked Josh Lewin will likely be shifting to WOR as well, but notes that it likely won’t be on a long-term deal.
Other candidates to fill spots during Mets broadcasts on WOR are former players Cliff Floyd and Darryl Hamilton, both of whom played with the Mets. Mike Puma of the New York Post reported Hamilton’s candidacy earlier today.
It’s unclear whether Floyd and/or Hamilton are alternatives to Lewin, or whether they’d be hired to fill a different capacity.
Both Floyd and Hamilton have worked for MLB Network, and Floyd is currently working for Sirius XM Radio.
