The Albany FireWolves, the Capital Region’s Indoor Lacrosse team playing out of the Times Union Center beginning in December, today announce that Mike Falvo will be the inaugural season Public Address Announcer and in-arena voice of the team.
A Utica, New York native, Falvo has spent the past 25 years behind a microphone. Falvo began announcing as a sophomore at Frankfort-Schuyler high school for the women’s basketball team, eventually becoming the voice of Frankfort Athletics. Since then, he has held the microphone on basketball courts, in MMA cages, and boxing and wrestling rings not just here in the Capital Region, but worldwide.
A veteran of the United States Air Force, Falvo served as a Radio/TV Producer for the American Forces Network earning Air Force level acclaim for his work in Sports News Broadcasting. This also allowed him to announce and host various events in locations such as the Azores, Portugal and Baghdad, Iraq; a broadcast career that he still enjoys with the New York State Assembly. Most recently, Falvo spent two seasons as the in-arena voice for the Arena Football League Champion Albany Empire.
“I cannot begin to explain how excited I am to be back in the Times Union Center,” said Falvo. “Not only to work with familiar faces and a team with a championship mindset, but to help write a new chapter of Capital Region sports with the FireWolves. I get to do what I love, and I get to do it in front of the best fans a team could ask for. What is better than that?”
“We are thrilled to have Mike join our organization and be the in-arena voice of the FireWolves,” said George Manias, Albany FireWolves President. “Mike knows how important it is to call our games professionally and always delivers there, and he also is a master at leading the crowd to help create a dynamic in-game experience and atmosphere for our fans. His familiar voice will be welcoming to our fans! In addition, Mike will also be part of our community engagement, social media campaigns, and foundation events, helping to spread our message.”
