A familiar voice on New York radio since 1980, Mike McCann brings a lifetime of sports passion to WFAN. He’s got a knack for being at memorable events — when his dad suggested they go to a Father’s Day doubleheader at Shea Stadium, he saw Jim Bunning throw his historic perfect game against the Mets. In 1969, he and a group of friends got opening day tickets at Shea — in which the Montreal Expos made their National League debut and won a wacky 11-10 game.
In the mid-’80s, while hosting WYNY’s all-night show, Mike branched out into covering the Mets and Giants’ post-season title runs — and sat with the FAN’s Howie Rose in an auxiliary press box at Shea for their amazing game-six comeback in the World Series. He’s also done spring training interviews for ‘YNY and WCBS-FM. During the early- and mid-’90s, McCann hosted and produced the KMOX Time Capsule, a weekly history and audio highlights feature for the long time St. Louis sports and talk radio leader.
Mike, who grew up in suburban Eastchester, now lives in Fairfield County, Connecticut with his wife and two daughters.
