Patrick McCarthy, son of Phillies TV announcer Tom, will be the WCBS pregame and postgame host and swingman game-caller when the voice of the team, Howie Rose, is off.
The Post previously reported that Keith Raad would be the Mets’ replacement for Wayne Randazzo as Rose’s main booth partner. Raad has been the Brooklyn Cyclones lead broadcaster.
Patrick McCarthy had been doing Triple-A Lehigh Valley games. Last year, at 26, he replaced his dad for two games on Phillies broadcasts when Tom was calling an NFL preseason game.
While McCarthy replaces Brad Heller on the broadcast, his role will be more akin to the retired Ed Coleman, who would do pregame and postgame reports while working as the swing play-by-player.
