Welcome to the Phillies Nation Podcast!
Tom McCarthy, the TV play-by-play voice of the Philadelphia Phillies, joins Pat Gallen to talk about Ryan, J-Roll, and Cole, plus the Los Angeles Dodgers late-season trades. T-Mac also touches on a subject that still affects Phillies fans everywhere, Harry Kalas. McCarthy talks about the late, great Harry the K and how tough it has been to lose such an incredible person and voice.
McCarthy is in his second stint with the Phillies, having left in 2006 to work with the New York Mets. Tom has done extensive broadcasting for collegiate sports in his career. He currently does basketball and football play-by-play for College Sports Television (CSTV), a CBS-owned property, and is the radio voice of the Saint Joseph’s University men’s basketball team. Previously, he was the play-by-play voice for Rutgers University football (2001-03), as well as Princeton University football (1995-2000) and men’s basketball (1995-2003).
In 2000, Tom earned a Mid-Atlantic Emmy Award for his work on CN8 and is a two-time winner (2002 & 2004) of the Achievement in Radio Award for Best Local Sports Coverage.
