PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- A broadcasting source tells ESPNNewYork.com 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. (Read a U-T San Diego article about his departure from the station here.) 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.
