More on Kevin Burkhardt's life and career

Before he rose to television stardom, Burkhardt had to struggle through life. In the New York Post interview, he said how he toiled at 1,000-watt WGHT for eight years, while freelancing at New York radio stations. “I got tired of the grind of making no money and no one returning my phone calls,” he reportedly said. 

After struggling for years, Burkhardt finally got his big break in 2014, when he signed a three-year contract with Fox beginning 2015, after doing fill-in work for Major League Baseball in 2012 and 2013, and serving as pre-game host for MLB coverage on Fox and Fox Sports 1 in 2014. He started calling games for NFL on Fox in 2013. His journey to stardom, however, started in 2007 when he joined SNY's Mets broadcast team replacing Chris Cotter, appearing in shows including 'Mets Hot Stove', 'Mets Pre-Game Live', 'Mets Post-Game Live' and 'Mets Year in Review'.
