Mets News: ESPN Rubin: Andy Masir will get gig with WOR as pregame/postgame host

ESPN NY's Adam Rubin Says:

A broadcasting source tells that the industry scuttlebutt is that Andy Masur will "get the gig with WOR" as pregame and postgame host for Mets radio.

A second source with actual ties to the decision would only confirm that Masur is on WOR's list of candidates.

Masur spent the past seven seasons doing San Diego Padres radio play-by-play on The Mighty 1090.  Masur previously worked for the Chicago Cubs.

WOR originally had serious contract negotiations with SiriusXM's Casey Stern, but he had issues related to his satellite-radio contract.

Howie Rose and Josh Lewin will remain the in-game play-by-play team with the shift from WFAN to WOR.

Mets News: Mets to keep Howie Rose and Josh Lewin on WOR

Mets News:

Clear Channel Media and Entertainment has decided to keep Howie Rose and Josh Lewin as the broadcast team on 710 WOR.

Howie Rose, a long time announcer on Mets radio broadcasts, while Lewin has become popular since joining Rose two seasons ago.

An official announcement is expected later this week.

The pregame/postgame host may not be announced at the same time. There has been a prolonged negotiation with one candidate who currently works in satellite radio.

WOR had weighed replacing Lewin with a former player, to complement Rose as an analyst, as SNY does on the TV side with Keith Hernandez and Ron Darling joining Gary Cohen.

WOR is replacing WFAN as the Mets flagship station.

Mets News: Mets Officially Announce Move to 710 AM WOR

Mets News:

The Mets have agreed to a five-year multimedia partnership with Clear Channel Media and Entertainment, making 710 WOR the new radio home of the club.

In a press release issued by the Mets on Monday morning, the club announced that WOR will broadcast regular season, postseason and Spring Training games, along with both pregame and postgame shows.

"This breakthrough partnership provides us with the ability to serve our loyal fans and attract a new generation of fans through Clear Channel's massive reach and ability to target key demographics across the New York market," Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon said in the statement. "Our agreement delivers more promotion of the club to a broader audience than this franchise ever has had before with additional opportunities to advance our efforts to make Citi Field one of the leading sports and entertainment destinations in the country."

WFAN had broadcast Mets games since the station's inception in 1987.

Longtime radio play-by-play man Howie Rose, who had been with WFAN since '87, is expected to remain the voice of the team. Rose has been the Mets' lead play-by-play announcer since 2006. It is not clear whether radio analyst Josh Lewin will join Rose with Clear Channel.

The Mets will also work with Clear Chanel to enhance Citi Field's in-game entertainment. At the same time, Clear Channel will "explore the production and promotion of top name concerts, festivals and large-scale entertainment events at Citi Field," the release read.

Like WFAN, WOR is a 50,000-watt station. In addition to WOR, Clear Channel owns five popular FM stations in New York, including WHTZ (Z100) and WLTW (Lite FM), which the Mets plan to use for Mets-related programming and marketing.

Mets News: Mets switching stations in 2014

Mets News:

According to ESPN NY, The New York Mets have found a new radio home -- WOR 710 AM.

The 50,000-watt station is nearing an agreement with the Mets on a multiyear deal, according to industry sources.

Howie Rose is expected to remain the primary voice of the Mets.

Clear Channel Media and Entertainment, along with WOR, operates five FM stations in the market: Z100, KTU, Power 105.1, Lite FM 106.7 and Q104.

WOR has a news format throughout the day, the Mets will benefit from promotion on the five FM stations -- for instance David Wright and other Mets players potentially appearing on Z100. The Mets also should expect Jingle Ball-type concerts at Citi Field during the summer.

The Mets needed to find a new partner after WFAN opted to switch to carrying Yankees games for the 2014 season.
