SNY, which will broadcast 20 UConn women's basketball games this season, announced Thursday they've hired former Huskies Meghan Culmo and Kara Wolters as part of their broadcast team.
Culmo was previously the UConn color commentator on CPTV and Wolters held the same position on the Huskies' radio broadcasts for WTIC-1080AM. Andrew Catalton will serve as the play-by-play announcer, with Culmo as the game analyst and Kerith Burke as sideline reporter. Gary Apple will anchor the network's studio coverage, with Wolters as the in-studio analyst.
The network's coverage will begin at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 11 when the Huskies host the College of Charleston at Gampel Pavilion.
"I'm delighted to be part of the amazing team at SNY, as they have assembled one of the best broadcast teams in the business," Wolters said. "Their superior production capabilities will bring an unparalleled viewing experience to the fans. I am thrilled to know that a broad audience will have the opportunity to experience the championship caliber of the UConn women's basketball program."
SNY is the home of the New York Mets, Jets and the Big East Conference.
