Raad, McCarthy Announced for WCBS Mets Coverage


Audacy has formally announced the additions of Keith Raad and Pat McCarthy to its coverage of New York Mets games on WCBS (880 AM).

Raad will team up with Howie Rose to call the games on WCBS, while McCarthy — the son of former Mets announcer Tom McCarthy — will work as the pre-game and post-game host and also serve as a fill-in announcer.

“As we round the bases towards Spring Training, we’re proud to officially welcome Keith Raad and Pat McCarthy to our popular coverage of Mets baseball alongside Mets Hall of Famer Howie Rose,” said Chris Oliviero, the market president for Audacy New York. “Once again, the Mets off season has created anticipation and optimism for the 2023 Amazins’ and we’re looking forward to being the audio home for every moment on-air and digitally.”

“The Mets are excited to have Keith and Pat join WCBS 880 as part of the Mets broadcast,” said Andy Goldberg, the chief marketing officer and executive vice president of the New York Mets. “Having Keith called up from Brooklyn, and being a local New Yorker to keep it in the family, is what the Mets are all about.”

The announcement confirmed reports previously published by the New York Post that said Audacy was nearing deals to bring Raad and McCarthy on board for Mets games.

Raad spent the last five years calling games for the Brooklyn Cyclones on Coney Island. McCarthy was the play-by-play announcer for the Lehigh Valley Pigs, and also filled in on Phillies broadcasts.
