Timeline of Mets Broadcasters

The Mets have had some fine television (I don’t care about radio) broadcasters over the years (Ralph-Bob-Lindsey, Gary Thorne, Gary-Keith-Ron) and some not so fine (Lorn Brown, Fran Healy). And it’s been pretty stable, with several teams lasting more than a decade together. Here is a timeline, with the main broadcasters in bold, and their supporting cast and years underneath. Wikipedia helped.
