The NBA season is just around the corner and the sudden death of long-time TV play-by-play broadcaster Fred McLeod at age 67 was a shock.

The tragic news just happened two weeks ago and the team finally made a decision who would replace McLeod and also who would do the radio broadcasting.

John Michael, who replaced fan favorite Joe Tait on the radio after his retirement, has been selected to move from calling Cavs games on the radio to announcing with Mr. Cavalier Austin Carr on Fox Sports Ohio telecasts this season.

Replacing Michael on play-by-play for radio broadcasts will be Tim Alcorn, who has been a part of the Northeast Ohio sports scene for more than thirty years.

The game analyst on radio will be the same as Carr’s former Cavs teammate, Jim Chones, will team with Alcorn.

In a press release issued by the team, Tad Carper, the Cavaliers’ Executive Vice President and Chief Communications Officer, explained the decision to hire Michael as McLeod’s replacement.

“The loss of Fred McLeod is something that has hurt all of us greatly. Certainly, we will always carry great thoughts and memories of Fred with us forever,” said Carper. “We are fortunate, though, to have John Michael as part of our broadcast family. John is a very talented, dedicated, hard-working and insightful broadcaster who has a great spectrum of experience and perspective to now bring to our TV broadcasts.”
