I was wondering what would happen with Dave Barnett after his unfortunate incident earlier this season. The Rangers announced that Barnett’s contract will not be renewed after it expired at the end of this season. Instead, they will keep the same television broadcast team they ended the season with: Steve Busby and Tom Grieve.
After Busby moved over to the TV booth to replace Barnett, they called up Matt Hicks from Corpus Christi to replace him on the radio. Hicks will stay with the best guy in the business, Eric Nadel, to call radio broadcasts next year.
The Rangers are also not bringing back Bryan Dolgin who hosted the pregame and postgame shows. I am not disappointed in that decision. I’ve never really been a fan of Dolgin. I couldn’t find who they are going to replace him with, but most anyone will be better. Heck, I personally have some friends whom I think would be considerably better.
