Kevin Burkhardt is a reporter who works for SNY. He is the field reporter during New York Mets telecasts. He calls select Mets game during both: spring training and regular season. He joined the broadcast team at the beginning of the 2007 season, replacing Chris Cotter. Burkhardt interviewed for the SNY job, but never thought he would be hired. Burkhardt also calls Dallas Cowboys games on Compass Media Networks with Danny White as well as college football games.
Early life and career 
A 1997 graduate of William Paterson University, he grew up in Bloomfield, New Jersey doing play-by play for Nintendo games in his junior high school days, in imitation of Gary Cohen, who is now his partner in the broadcast booth. He took his degree in broadcasting to radio station WGHT in northern New Jersey, spending eight years working for the station covering events including high school football. The station is daytime only and goes off the air at night. Burkhardt became frustrated at WGHT; he left his job and became a car salesman after reading the local paper's Help Wanted ads. He sold cars for seven months before he wanted to go back into broadcasting again.
Burkhardt has also been the play-by-play voice for Dallas Cowboys games on Compass Media Networks since the inaugural of its America's Team Radio Network in 2011. He is teamed with Danny White on the broadcasts. He also calls college football games for the network.
Personal life 
Burkhardt lives in central New Jersey with his wife, Rachel, and son, Logan.
