Gary Cohen will remain the voice of the New York Mets for a few more seasons. The longtime Mets play by play announcer has agreed to a multi-year agreement which will keep him working on television broadcasts with analysts Ron Darling and Keith Hernandez on SportsNet New York.
Sources say negotiations between the two sides went smoothly.
Cohen started working with the Mets in 1989, contributing to the team’s radio broadcasts on WFAN with the late Bob Murphy. He moved to television in 2005 when SNY launched and began broadcasting Mets baseball.
In addition to landing a new contract with his hometown team, Cohen also has been named one of the finalists for the 2017 Ford C. Frick Award for excellence in broadcasting. The other finalists for the award are Bill King, Mike Krukow, Pat Hughes, Ken Harrelson, Jacques Doucet, Dewayne Stats, and Ned Martin.
