Jets Legend Anthony Becht has joined the CBS 2 New York broadcast team for its coverage of three Jets’ preseason games. With Ian Eagle handling the play-by-play, Becht will provide color commentary and expert analysis, including background information, statistics, strategy, and additional antidotes. Otis Livingston will continue to work with the group providing live player interviews from the field.

An 11-year veteran, Becht played his first five seasons with Jets following his selection in the first round of the 2000 NFL Draft, one of a record four first-round selections that season. No stranger to the broadcast booth, Becht has been an ESPN college football analyst since 2013.
