New Beginnings – Under the Orange Roof

Long-time Tampa Bay Rays reporter and radio host Steve Carney welcomes you to his new venture, and explains how this podcast and everything else that will be associated with it came into existence.

Rays Radio play-by-play broadcaster Andy Freed then joins Steve to talk about all the beginnings he has seen with the team, from the beginning of their relevance in the American League East to starting over in 2021 with Blake Snell and Charlie Morton.

Steve Carney is the founder and publisher of St. Pete Nine. One of the people most associated with baseball coverage in Tampa Bay, he spent 13 seasons covering the Rays for flagship radio station WDAE, first as producer of Rays Radio broadcasts, then as beat reporter beginning in 2011. He likes new analytics and aged bourbon, and is the owner of one of the ugliest knuckleballs ever witnessed by baseball scouts.
