Steve Gelbs to replace Kevin Burkhardt as SNY's Mets reporter

SNY has managed to keep its popular three-man announcing booth for Mets games – plus its producer and director – intact entering its 10th season of Mets coverage.

But 2015 will bring a key change to the team, with Kevin Burkhardt having left for a full-time job at Fox after eight seasons as the Mets reporter.

Monday, SNY plans to name Steve Gelbs to succeed him.

The move comes as no surprise as Gelbs filled in regularly for Burkhardt last season when he was on assignment for Fox.
