Rose in 2010

Howie Rose (born Howard Rose in 1954) is an American sportscaster. He is currently the radio voice of the New York Mets on WFAN, and the television and radio announcer for the New York Islanders on MSG Plus, WMJC-FM (nights), and WHLI (days).

Rose, who has done Mets play-by-play on radio or television since 1995, utters his catch phrase, "Put it in the books" after a Mets victory; when he uses the phrasing "and the Mets are leading by a score of __ to __" he uses the same diction as original Mets 'caster Lindsey Nelson. He previously hosted the "Mets Extra" pre- and post-game shows.

He worked the television booth until the retirement of long-time Mets radio voice Bob Murphy. Rose took Murphy's spot alongside Gary Cohen on WFAN. Cohen became the play-by-play broadcaster on new Mets network SportsNet New York for the 2006 season, and Rose shared the radio booth with partner Tom McCarthy and producer/engineer Chris Majkowski. In 2008, Wayne Hagin replaced McCarthy. In 2012 he hosted the Mets All-Time Team along with Kevin Burkhardt and Gary Cohen. He also appears on Oh Yeah. He was also a contestant on Battle of the Broadcasters with Josh Lewin and Seth Everett. He also appeared as a contestant on Beat the Booth with Gary Cohen.

Rose has also been the master of the ceremonies at Citi Field during the Mets' home openers in 2009-present as well as other key Mets events.
