The Lightning Radio Team

Dave Mishkin brings his energetic style back for a 21st year as radio play-by-play announcer for all Lightning games on our new flagship radio station 102.5 The Bone.

In addition to broadcasting games, Mishkin is a regular contributor to , where fans can read his post-game analysis with his "Extra Shift" and his periodic columns entitled "Mishkin's Musings". He also posts regular Lightning updates on Twitter and can be found at @DaveMishkin.

Mishkin and his certified therapy dog Stella, a Bernese Mountain Dog, make regular visits to Tampa General Hospital throughout the year.

Prior to joining the Lightning, Mishkin spent eight seasons as the television and radio voice of the AHL's Hershey Bears. While with the Bears, Mishkin maintained a variety of roles outside of broadcasting including media and public relations as well as hockey operations. During his time with the Hershey organization, Mishkin served for three years as the play-by-play broadcaster and media relations director for the company's soccer team in the A-League, the Hershey Wildcats.

A 1991 Yale graduate, Mishkin broke into professional hockey as play-by-play broadcaster for the Johnstown Chiefs of the ECHL. While a student at Yale he also worked in the University's Sports Information Office for the 1990-91 academic school year and served as Sports Director for the school radio station, WYBC, from 1989-91.

NHL Hall of Famer Phil Esposito returns as radio analyst for Lightning home games. 

A Lightning founder and the team's General Manager during its first seven seasons, Esposito joined the Lightning radio team during the 1999-00 season. Prior to joining the Lightning broadcast team, he worked as a television analyst for FOX television in Los Angeles and UPN 38 WSBK-TV in Boston. Esposito has also served as a broadcast analyst for the New York Rangers on MSG Network and was the Rangers' Vice President & General Manager from 1986-88.

Esposito's spectacular 18-year playing career was highlighted by two Stanley Cup Championships with the Boston Bruins, in 1970 and 1972. Originally a member of the Chicago Blackhawks (1963-67), Esposito was the central figure in one of hockey's biggest trades when he was sent to Boston in 1967. During the next eight seasons, he virtually rewrote the NHL record books. He became the first player in NHL history to score 100 points in a season (1969-70) and, two seasons later, set single season standards of 76 goals and 152 points, which stood until Wayne Gretzky eclipsed those marks a decade later. His 717 career goals place him fourth on the all-time list, and his 1,590 points are eighth all-time.

Esposito was honored prior to a Lightning home game on December 31, 2011, with a bronze statue in his likeness which was unveiled on the Amalie Arena west plaza. 

Greg Linnelli is in his 8th season as the game day host of Lightning Radio. You can also hear him with Dave Mishkin on weekdays at noon on our Lightning Power Lunch show on our 24/7 audio stream, Lightning Radio 24/7.
A native of Pennsylvania, Linnelli came to Tampa Bay in 2012 after working in various sports talk TV and radio positions in Pittsburgh for eight years. Following his graduation from Duquesne University in 2003, Linnelli was a play-by-play announcer and studio host for the University of Pittsburgh. He was also the executive producer for Pitt football and basketball, as well as host and producer for Duquesne men's basketball games. Linnelli hosted Pirates and Steelers pre and post-game shows on local radio stations and his morning show on Fox Sports 970. Relocating to Tampa in 2012, Linnelli quickly joined the new 98.7 The Fan sports radio as a host and sports update anchor.

Greg resides in Odessa with his wife, Annie, and daughters, Gianna and Alaria.
