Howie Rose To Visit WFAN Monday As He Marks 50 Years In Radio.

Longtime New York Mets voice Howie Rose will take to the WFAN airwaves from 5 to 8pm today (Monday, June 24) as he marks 50 years in New York sports radio.

On Friday, Rose took to social media to say he’ll be in the studio for WFAN’s afternoon drivetime show, Evan & Tiki, with hosts Evan Roberts and Tiki Barber from 5 to 6pm. From 6:30 to 8pm, Rose will host solo. His guests will include legendary broadcaster Marv Albert and former Mets All-Star David Wright.

Rose has been the Mets’ play-by-play voice — on radio or TV — since 1995. Rose was on TV for eight years before he succeeded the legendary Bob Murphy on WFAN beginning with the 2004 season.

Rose has remained the team’s lead radio voice through moves from WFAN to WOR and subsequently from WOR to the current WCBS.

Rose has also called games for two of the New York area’s National Hockey League franchises: the New York Rangers and New York Islanders.

Rose is known to Big Apple hockey fans for a memorable call of Stéphane Matteau’s series-winning goal for the Rangers against the New Jersey Devils in double-overtime of Game 7 of the 1994 Eastern Conference Finals.
