Cotroneo Named To A’s Radio Booth

Vince Cotroneo, formerly of the Texas Rangers radio booth, has been hired as the new radio announcer, filling the spot vacated by the late Bill King.

I don’t know much about him other than what’s listed in the article. Googling around, it seems that Rangers fans took some time to get used to him at first, but then they generally seemed to like him.

That’s what I’d expect to happen in any event, even if the A’s had hired Vin Scully instead of Vince Cotroneo. Whoever the new guy is, he won’t be Bill King, and that will be weird.

Way back when, Ken Korach wasn’t Lon Simmons, and that was weird, too. But now I love Ken Korach. Here’s hoping the same happens for Mr. Cotroneo.

1.  This is the season for new announcers. Cardinals, White Sox, Mets, Athletics.

The Nationals are going to need somebody new.

2.  I'm a longtime D/FW resident.

Cotroneo got fired here because Rangers owner Tom Hicks didn't think he was enough of a blatant homer. He's a professional, and you'll like him OK.
