Steve Cangialosi, the award-winning broadcaster and TV voice of the New Jersey Devils for the last 11 seasons, is stepping down as the play-by-play announcer of the team.
The distinctive voice of Cangialosi, a Queens native, provided a soundtrack to many of the Devils' greatest moments across the past decade.
Cangialosi began as a host and sideline reporter in 2006 before becoming the lead announcer in 2011, replacing legendary Hall of Fame broadcaster Doc Emrick. Cangialosi worked alongside Devils legend Chico Resch in the booth until 2014, when Ken Daneyko took over as color commentator alongside Cangialosi.
"Steve has informed us of his decision to step down as MSG Networks' Devils play-by-play announcer beginning next season," MSG Networks said in a statement. "We will certainly miss his calls after eleven wonderful years in this role and sixteen years as part of Devils broadcasts on our networks. We look forward to Steve continuing as the play-by-play voice for our Red Bulls telecasts this season.”
Cangialosi will remain the voice of the Red Bulls, which just began a new season in February. He has also served as a soccer voice for international soccer matches and has contributed to several Olympic matches.
“The New Jersey Devils are a first class organization, and it was a privilege to serve as the voice of the club for 11 seasons, and to be affiliated with Devils’ hockey on MSG Networks for 16 years," Cangialosi said in a statement. "Memories and friendships I’ve made with our terrific MSG Devils’ crew, and of course, the fans, will last even longer and for that I am grateful.”
