“Ed is an exceptional young voice with incredible versatility, and we’re excited to welcome him as radio play-by-play announcer for the New York Knicks,” Jeff Filippi, senior vice president of production and programming and executive producer, said in a new release. “Fans will really enjoy his play-by-play and his rapport with analyst Brendan Brown.”

Said Cohen, “I’m incredibly excited and grateful to be joining the MSG and Knicks family. As a lifelong New Yorker who grew up not far from where the Knicks practice [in Westchester County], it’s a broadcasting dream come true to now have a seat in the radio booth, and I’m thrilled to do it alongside Brendan Brown. I can’t wait to get started and see what the coming years bring for the franchise.”
