Mets lose, radio wins

Dear Editor,

The Mets fired manager Mickey Callaway after two seasons because his team failed to land a wild card spot in the playoffs.

As a Mets fan since 1964, I was thrilled when they won the 1969 and 1986 World Series. I'm delighted that rookie Pete Alonso set a new MLB home run record.

But I'm glad that the Mets didn't make it to 2019's postseason because my favorite radio station, WCBS-AM, can now return to its regular all-news format.

Under new ownership by Entercom, Radio 880 this year began airing play-by-play broadcasts of all Mets games, including spring training contests. This annoyed many listeners like me, who want the latest news when we tune in.

Why air games on radio when Mets fans can see them on TV, computers or phones. Radio play-by-play broadcasts are as outdated as rotary dial phones and black-and-white TV.
