Loughlin to call Devils games on radio broadcasts

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Matt Loughlin is the new radio play-by-play announcer for the New Jersey Devils.

Loughlin, 48, will make his debut Oct. 6, when the Devils open
their 25th season against the Stanley Cup champion Carolina Hurricanes. He hosted the team's pre- and post-game shows the past
eight seasons on Fox Sports New York and served as the fill-in
play-by-play announcer.

"Matt has covered sports at different levels for a number of
years and, through his hard work, has gained respect in this
marketplace," Devils president and general manager Lou Lamoriello said.

Loughlin will continue his role as an anchor for NBA TV's "The
Insiders," having recently covered the NBA draft and the WNBA
All-Star Game.
