Cicero-North Syracuse grad lands job in Syracuse Chiefs broadcast booth
3/5/2018 6:55 AM

The Syracuse Chiefs have turned to a home-grown voice to fill its latest job opening behind the microphone.

The Chiefs have hired Michael Tricarico as a broadcaster. Tricarico will join Eric Gallanty, who returns for his fourth year with the Chiefs, in the 2018 broadcast booth. The pair will broadcast Chiefs regular-season and postseason games on The Score 1260.

Tricarico, 22, fills the opening created when Kevin Brown left the team last year for a position with ESPN.

Tricarico attended Cicero-North Syracuse and Syracuse University, where he served as sports director and called games for WAER-FM Radio before graduating in 2017.

"This is a fantastic opportunity,'' Tricarico said. "I certainly can't take anything for granted, especially in this field. I think you have to have confidence in yourself. But I also know that there's plenty of other qualified and hard-working people out there who certainly could be doing this job. So I'm certainly humbled to have this position and get this position, especially at this age.''

Tricarico called games with Brown at the end of the 2014 season while serving as a broadcast intern with the team. Tricarico's other baseball experience includes a season as the Voice of the Auburn Doubledays in the New York-Penn League in 2016 and a year calling games for the Fort Wayne TinCaps of the Midwest League in 2017.
