About the show

Pete McCarthy is in his fifth year as host of Mets On-Deck and the Sports Zone on 710 WOR. Pete is a Long Island native, who quickly realized his dream of playing for the orange and blue wasn't going to happen and sought to find another way to be involved in the game, broadcasting! Learning the craft at Hofstra University's outstanding student radio station, Pete called over 100 Hofstra basketball, football, baseball and softball games. All while working as a beer man at Nassau Coliseum during Islanders games. He hit his big break in 2005, being hired by MLB.com to call video highlights for cell phones, even if few had the ability to watch them yet! When not talking Mets or the rest of the New York sports scene at WOR, you can probably find Pete at Central Park playing softball, panting at a Crossfit gym, or in the woods, searching aimlessly for an errant tee shot.
