Exclusive Interview With Matt Devlin
Earlier this week the Toronto Raptors announced that Matt Devlin would be taking over for the legendary Chuck Swirsky next season and I had the pleasure of chatting with him on Wednesday afternoon.
Devlin picked a perfect time to start his new job because his first day as the voice of the Raptors coincided with the press conferences to announce the acquisition of Jermaine O’Neal as well as the re-signing of Jose Calderon. Despite a busy first day working for the Raptors, I was fortunate enough to be given some of Devlin’s time and we talked about why family played a role in his move from Charlotte, what it will be like to replace Chuck Swirsky, what he hopes to bring to Raptors broadcasts next season and he talked about his big plans for the summer announcing the Olympic games in Beijing.
Chatting with Devlin was a pleasure and I’m looking forward to hearing him announce Raptors games next season because of his knowledge of the game and his passion for the city of Toronto.
