THIS JUST IN: Cavaliers Name Michael, Broadcast Team

The NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers have named the team’s new radio broadcast team.

And the new play-by-play voice is a surprise to many.

John Michael, a host on Fox Sports Ohio’s NHL Columbus Blue Jackets coverage, has the monumental task of being the next Cavs radio voice after retired legend Joe Tait.

Michael is not a stranger to working for a Dan Gilbert-owned team at Quicken Loans Arena… he was the first radio/TV voice of the AHL’s Lake Erie Monsters.

Jim Chones’ stint doing analysis with Mike Snyder in Tait’s medical absence apparently won him that gig permanently alongside Michael.

And Snyder, the 20 year veteran of Cavaliers Radio and sports director of Clear Channel talk WTAM/1100, returns to his familiar role as the radio pre-game/halftime/post-game host.

We’ll have more on this, later today…

  1. Wow. Nothing against Mr. Michael, but Snyder got the shaft on this one.
