The deal keeps The Score 1260 AM as the flagship radio station for all Syracuse Mets home and away games and includes coverage of the Triple-A All-Star Game and Triple-A National Championship.

Michael Tricarico will return for his third full season in the Syracuse Mets broadcast booth and his second season as the lead play-by-play voice of the Syracuse Mets.

Evan Stockton will join Tricarico in the broadcast booth this season. 2020 will be Stockton's first season with Syracuse. The 24-year old spent last summer as a play-by-play broadcaster for the Fort Wayne TinCaps of the Midwest League.  
"We are so excited to be continuing this relationship with The Score 1260 and Cumulus," said Syracuse Mets General Manager Jason Smorol. "They have been a great local partner for us and a big part of our growth and success since 2014. Being on the radio was and is important to our fans, and Cumulus delivers for us."
