Casey is excited to come to Springfield after a year in New York City working as a play-by-play commentator with MSG Varsity and Time Warner and working in production for CBS Sports Network.

A sports fan as far back as he can remember, Casey discovered at a younger age that the possibility of pursuing a career as the next Michael Jordan was pretty unlikely. As a result, he decided to do the next best thing; cover sports!

While attending Hofstra University, the New Jersey native served as an on-air talent with the award-winning student radio station, WRHU. It was there where he discovered his passion for sports journalism, doing everything from covering the New York Jets and New York Islanders to play-by-play commentary for Hofstra basketball. While in school, he spent time interning with CBS 2 New York, NBC Sports and Olympics, Sirius XM and News 12 New Jersey.

Casey is an avid Knicks, Yankees and long-suffering Raiders fan. When outside of ABC40, he can be found spending time with friends and family, going to concerts or playing a pickup game on the nearest basketball court. He obviously didn’t turn out to be MJ but he still has a pretty nice jumper!
