One and Done, Moyer Exits Phillies Broadcast Booth
Moyer, who alongside former Phillies teammate Matt Stairs, joined the Phillies’ broadcast crew back in February for the 2014 season, replacing longtime announcers Chris Wheeler and Gary Matthews.
With a desire to spend more time with family in California, Moyer decided to remove himself from the broadcast booth, and has informed Comcast SportsNet that he will not return for the 2015 Phillies season.
“At the end of the Phillies' season, I gave the situation a great deal of thought, with my family in mind,” Moyer tells Comcast SportsNet. “I enjoyed my year behind the mic tremendously, and the opportunity to work with Tom, Matt, Mike and Gregg is one I will cherish. However, as we are now based on the West Coast, the geography presents unique challenges to the matter at hand. I thus reached a decision that, for the moment, it’s very difficult to balance a bicoastal professional life with family life at home."
The rest of the Phillies TV Broadcast team will return in 2015, including Tom McCarthy, Matt Stairs, Mike Schmidt and Gregg Murphy.
Moyer will always be remembered for his time with the Phillies, including his contributions to the 2008 World Series championship team, and 2009 National League championship team.
