Bob Wischusen provides play-by-play services for ESPN and is the voice of the New York Jets.
At ESPN, Bob calls college football, college basketball and golf. He is the radio voice of the New York Jets on ESPN1050 Radio.
Prior to joining ESPN, Bob called Rangers and Knicks games for the MSG Network. He joined MSG in July 2000 as a key component in the launch of FOX Sports Net’s (FSN) ambitious “Regional Sports Report – New York Edition”. He co-hosted “Talk of Our Town” with Bill Daughtry from 2002-2003. Before joining MSG, Bob served as a host of Jets radio broadcasts on WABC-AM (since 1997).
Bob came to MSG following a five-year run at WFAN-AM as a talk-show host and sports news update announcer from 1995-2000. It marked a return to the New York metropolitan area for the northern New Jersey native after working for three years (1993-1995) as a talk show host and update anchor for sports radio WQAM-AM in Miami.
Bob’s time at WFAN was marked by one of his career highlights when he was working the overnight shift on the evening Mickey Mantle passed away.
The Boston College alum and Union Catholic High School Graduate maintained his close ties to the Garden State by calling local New Jersey college football, basketball, and baseball games for the Comcast network from 1997 through 2000. Since 1998, he has been called upon by the Westwood Radio Network for its college football and basketball broadcasts.
A golfing enthusiast with a keen sense of humor, Bob’s most prized possession is his Taylor-Made five-wood – a “gift that arrived after eight years of shanking” his two-iron. Wischusen’s obsession goes so far that he describes his perfect day as “18 holes at August National in Georgia, hopping on a plane for another 18 at Pebble Beach, then dinner with the love of my life, my wife Julie, where I go over each round with her, shot by shot.”
