ESPN LACROSSE VOICE EAMON MCANANEY LEAVES FOR SNY

ESPN will need to find a new play-by-play voice for its college men’s lacrosse broadcasts. Eamon McAnaney, the former Notre Dame defenseman who has called the last five NCAA championships, is leaving the Worldwide Leader to become a full-time anchor at SNY, a regional sports network owned by the New York Mets, Charter Communications and NBC Sports Group. New York Daily News media columnist Bob Raissman broke the news on Twitter.
McAnaney, a US Lacrosse contributor for the last three years and host of the “Time, Room, Bullseye” podcast, confirmed the report in a text message. He has been an announcer and sideline reporter for ESPN since 2007, concurrently hosting several SNY studio shows since 2009. Though McAnaney did sideline reporting and play-by-play announcing for several sports, notably Big East college football and basketball, his most recognizable calls have come from the lacrosse broadcast booth — most recently teaming with analysts Quint Kessenich and Paul Carcaterra, former All-American players at Johns Hopkins and Syracuse, respectively.

“At ESPN, they were very impressed that I played lacrosse because it was just starting to be televised and they didn’t have a lot of guys on the play-by-play side who knew the sport,” McAnaney said in a 2012 interview with UND.com. “It was a huge opportunity in my career.”

ESPN covered more than 100 college lacrosse games across its various channels — including ESPN3, an online streaming platform — in 2016. Anish Shroff, Mike Corey, John Brickley, Booker Corrigan, and Mark Dixon also handled play-by-play duties throughout the season. Ryan Boyle, Matt Ward, Ryan Flanagan, Sheehan Stanwick Burch, and Dixon occasionally served as analysts. ESPN has not yet released its 2017 lacrosse broadcast schedule.
