Pat McCarthy lands radio play-by-play gig with the New York Mets
Pat McCarthy, son of Phillies play-by-play announcer Tom McCarthy, has landed a broadcasting opportunity with the division-rival New York Mets.
Pat McCarthy Lands Radio Gig with the New York Mets
McCarthy called multiple Phillies games throughout the 2022 season in replacement of his Dad, who has another deal signed with CBS to broadcast basketball and football. Pat will follow in the footsteps of his father, as Tom McCarthy’s career also kicked off with the New York Mets’ minor-league system.
Pat McCarthy will be the pre and postgame host and “swingman game-caller” for WCBS once Howie Rose leaves the station. McCarthy started his career with the Reading Fightin Phils in 2017, where he was eventually promoted to AAA to cover the Iron Pigs. Pat also served as the football announcer at Princeton University, along with basketball play-by-play at St. Joe’s.
It’s always tough seeing a Philadelphia announcer head to New York, but we wish nothing but the best for Tom in the future.
