John Andariese leaves Knicks radio
John Andariese, who first served as a radio analyst for the Knicks in 1972, announced Friday he would leave their radio team.
He will be succeeded by Brendan Brown, who worked a limited number of games last season. His father, Hubie, is a former Knicks coach.
Andariese served as MSG’s Knicks television analyst from 1986-87 to 1997-98. He cited a desire to spend more time with his family, including his wife, Maureen, three daughters and four grandchildren.
In a statement released by MSG, Andariese thanked fans, saying, “I’m pleased beyond words to have been able to share my enthusiasm and passion for Knicks basketball with them. I’ll miss you all.”
