National Opportunities Lie Ahead
Spero Dedes will leave the Knicks' broadcast booth "to pursue national opportunities," he tells WFUV. Dedes served as the regular play-by-play announcer on the MSG Radio Network and as a backup to Mike Breen as the team's television announcer on MSG. It was a mutual decision.
"I really appreciate the opportunity that the Garden gave me," Spero said. "When I was a broadcast student at Fordham I dreamed of being an announcer for the Knicks. Not many people can say they got their dream job. I feel so fortunate. But the time came to take the next step nationally, in order to do that I needed to move on. I'm really excited about what's next."
