Former Fordham Ram broadcaster Spero Dedes named new radio play-by-play announcer for the Knicks

August 8, 2011

Via ESPN New York:

A month after being arrested for driving while intoxicated over the July 4 weekend, Spero Dedes was officially named the New York Knicks‘ new radio play-by-play announcer.

“Spero is one of the top play-by-play announcers in the country, and we’re excited that he is returning home to New York and joining MSG Networks,” Madison Square Garden executive vice president Dan Ronayne said in a statement Thursday.

Dedes also will back up MSG Network play-by-play man Mike Breen.

“I can remember walking into the Garden for my first Knicks game as a teenager and feeling the magic of the place,” Dedes said in the statement. “I’ve been in love with this franchise ever since. When I was a broadcast student at Fordham all I dreamt about was what it would feel like to be a Knicks announcer and now it’s become reality. I’m truly humbled by this opportunity, and having my family close to me again means a great deal. In addition, I’m forever grateful to the Lakers organization for my time spent there.”

Dedes, 32, had done play-by-play for the Los Angeles Lakers on 710 ESPN. Knicks broadcasts are on ESPN 1050 in New York.

…I think this is a great accomplishment for Spero and great hiring by the Knicks. This kid is a homegrown talent and knows basketball really well. I have listened to him throughout his time at Fordham and I think his potential is sky-high and that this is the beginning of a new era in New York Knicks basketball. He’s not the only one from Fordham to make it big in the past few years. Ryan Rucco is another talent on 1050 ESPN that has been really big for the station and has a great running show in the afternoons. It shows how Fordham alums can make such a difference in New York sports. But I wish him the best of luck and think he can make the Knicks sound like champions…
