Miss me talking Mets? haha. Best thing about 2015 is that Steve Gelbs, a Syracuse alum, is the new on-field reporter for SNY's Mets coverage. I traveled with him a lot last year, & got to know him both as a worker, & as a friend. He is one of the things I will miss about not being with them this year. I took some time on Thursday to talk with the guy who replaces the very popular Kevin Burkhardt.
Steve Gelbs has served as an anchor, host and reporter with SportsNet New York since July of 2013. He is also currently serving the Mets field reporter.
Prior to joining SNY, Steve spent a year and a half at MSG Network, as well as four years at MSG Varsity in New York. Steve graduated from my alma mater Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communications in 2009. I graduated in 1996, but who's counting.
