"Kenny Albert went from calling games in the stands at Madison Square Garden as a kid, to a $5 per week sportswriting job at Anton Newspapers in high school, to eventually becoming one of the most recognizable and beloved voices in professional sports."
Albert on calling games in the stands at MSG as a kid...
“I received a tape recorder for my fifth birthday. I started calling games off television, and when I became old enough to take it to Madison Square Garden (MSG) or Shea Stadium, I would call games into the recorder from the stands. The people around me probably thought I was crazy,” said Albert, who grew up in Sands Point and covered sports for Anton’s Port Washington News.
...could you imagine sitting at a game and seeing a kid next to you doing that? I absolutely would have thought he was nuts.
...i don't listen to many games on the radio, but I have to say Albert and Maloney are one of the best radio teams in the New York market.
