His voice has been a mainstay on WCBS 880 since the New York Rangers won the Stanley Cup in 1994. Gary Stanley has left his full-time sportscasting role with WCBS, produced by Total Traffic in New Jersey.
FishbowlNY has obtained the email that was sent to staffers yesterday.
The terse statement gave only two lines about Stanley.
“I regret to share with you that Gary Stanley is no longer with the company. We appreciate Gary’s years of service very much and wish him only the best.”
The email adds the promotion of Tom Stephens to full-time on the WCBS sports schedule.
FishbowlNY attempted to reach Total Traffic for confirmation.
Stanley’s time on WCBS predates Shadow (now Clear Channel’s Total Traffic) with four years working directly for the All-Newser.
Since 1985, Stanley has been the voice of Iona Basketball radio play-by-play.
He graduated from Fordham University in the mid 1970s with a B.A. in Communications.
