Andrew Catalon

Catalon is a little older than we’re looking for, but it’s hard to find young play-by-play voices. A network executive describes his style as being like Ian Eagle, meaning understated with the ability to set up his analysts well.

■ Age: 36
■ Current role: Play-by-play announcer for CBS Sports (NFL, NCAA basketball, golf)
■ Agent: Brian Jacobs, Headline Media Management
■ First broadcasting job: “When I graduated from Syracuse, an SU professor connected me with the news director at WVNY-TV, the ABC affiliate in Burlington, Vt. My first job was as weekend sports anchor.”
■ Most memorable event covered/person interviewed: “Calling the R.J. Hunter game-winning three-pointer in the NCAA tournament as his father and Georgia State head coach Ron Hunter fell off his stool.”
■ Dream job: “I love what I’m doing now and hope to do it for a long time.”

I like Garic but I think Strief is more qualified for play by play. I like it

This is one of the better young play-by-play announcers I've reviewed...







Wayne Randazzo is currently the pregame and postgame show host for the New York Mets on WOR Radio, a role he's had since 2015. He joins play-by-play announcer Howie Rose and Josh Lewin and hosts a 30-minute pre-game show before every regular season game and a 30-minute post-game program.

Randazzo joined WOR Radio from CBS Radio Chicago, where he served as a sports anchor and talk show host for WSCR-AM and WBBM-AM.

In addition to his radio background, Wayne has also become a polished play-by-play television broadcaster, thanks to opportunities at ESPN, Big Ten Network, MLB and Sports USA; and as a local broadcaster for the Chicago White Sox, Kane County Cougars and Chicago Sky.

Re: Voice Of The Saints Likely To Be A Familiar One, But Perhaps WWL Should Consider Wild-Card Option

I have a theory of who may be the next play-by-play man.



Scott Walker - formerly of WDSU

My older son is head coach of a USA Swimming team, Elmwood Sharks. His best swimmer is the son of Walker's sister, Sherry. I'm FB friends with Sherry so I always get her news feeds. In a couple of those Scott mentions an exciting new career move that will be announced sometime in the near future and he just resigned from his position with WDSU. He is a two time Emmy winning news and sportscaster. He has also said he will be remaining in New Orleans (actually Metairie).
