Matt Loughlin Named Radio Play-by-Play Voice
Devils Begin Second Season Over Sports Radio 66 WFAN

East Rutherford, NJ - (August 1, 2006) – The New Jersey Devils named Matt Loughlin to its radio broadcast team as play-by-play announcer. He will make his debut behind the Devils/ WFAN Radio microphone on Friday, October 6, when the club opens its 25th Anniversary season at Carolina. The announcement was made by Devils CEO/ President/General Manager Lou Lamoriello.

“Matt has covered sports at different levels for a number of years, and, through his hard work, has gained respect in this marketplace,” said Lamoriello. “We look forward to Matt joining our radio broadcast team as he changes careers and we enter the second season of our relationship with WFAN.”

Loughlin, 48, has served as a pre- and post-game host for FOX Sports Net New York’s Devils’ television coverage on a regular basis since the 1997-98 season. During that time, he has also served as the play-by-play announcer for selected Devils’ games. Loughlin will continue his role as an anchor for NBA TV’s The Insiders, having recently covered the NBA draft, as well as the WNBA All-Star Game festivities. He began his SportsChannel New York/FSN career in 1989 as announcer/reporter for Hofstra University football and lacrosse telecasts. One year later, Loughlin began hosting the New Jersey Nets pre- and post-game shows, as well as a limited number of Devils and New York Islanders games. From 1993-95, he was the trackside reporter for Summer Racing at Yonkers Raceway, and in 1995 called play-by-play for the New Jersey Rockin’ Rollers professional roller hockey league team. During the summer of 1995, Loughlin was the sports anchor at 1010 WINS-AM Radio.

From 1996-2005, Loughlin was the pre- and post-game host for New York Mets games, as well as play-by-play announcer for selected games over both MSG Network and FSN NY, and in 1998-99 was part of the production team that won a New York Emmy Award for Outstanding Sports Programming for Mets on Deck. In 1999, he became co-host for the re-launch of Kiner’s Korner over FSN NY. Loughlin’s play-by-play experience also includes the New Jersey Red Dogs of the Arena Football League in 1997 and 1998.

Loughlin began his broadcasting career in 1979 as a news reporter at WCTC-AM in New Brunswick (NJ). In 1980, he became assistant sports director at Suburban Cablevision in New Jersey, and in 1982, was promoted to sports director at the station. During Loughlin’s 12 years as sports director, the network received six national CableACE Awards, including three for Overall Sports Coverage. He most recently hosted two webcasts on MSGNetwork.com: This Week in Hockey and Batt’r Up!, featuring interviews with current NHL and MLB players.

Loughlin is a 1979 graduate of Seton Hall University, where he received a B.S. degree in marketing. Matt and his wife Maggie, reside in Westfield, NJ, with their three sons: Matthew, Conor and Liam.
