NETS Basketball Enhances Game Radio Broadcasts
Veteran Sports Talk Show Host Seth Everett Leads Pre-Game, Halftime, And Post-Game Shows
December 10, 2010
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.—NETS Basketball has enhanced its radio game broadcasts for the 2010-11 NBA season by establishing a sports anchor position on the pre-game, halftime, and post-game shows. The new post is held by local sports talk show host Seth Everett, who broadcasts from the Bud Light Goal Bar at the Prudential Center during NETS home games and at WFAN studios in Manhattan for the team’s road games.
Most NETS games are broadcast on WFAN, while several games air on Bloomberg Radio 1130, 970 The Apple, and 1190 WLIB.
Everett has joined the NETS radio broadcast team of Chris Carrino and Tim Capstraw, who are in their ninth season together. Prior to his new role, Everett served as an on-air host for Sirius/XM Satellite Radio and 1050 ESPN Radio New York. Before that, Everett spent seven years at Major League Baseball Advanced Media as a studio host.
In addition to setting the scene for each game in the pre-game show, Everett carries out interviews during halftime, as well as sports updates. During the post-game show, Everett provides post-game analysis and, after home games, leads the popular Q&A sessions with Carrino, Capstraw, and fans.
“We are always looking for new ways to enhance our broadcast for the fans,” Carrino said. “Seth Everett is an experienced New York area sports host, who gives us a fresh perspective. In addition, long time NETS Assistant Coach Tom Barrise joins us at halftime of each game to give us his unique analysis of the game from the view of the coaching staff. This, along with Head Coach Avery Johnson's insight before the game, gives the listeners a well-balanced, entertaining broadcast.”
“We believe that adding this element to the game broadcasts provides our fans with an enhanced listening experience,” said NETS CEO Brett Yormark. “Seth has the talent and studio experience to complement the best radio team in sports, Carrino and Capstraw.”
