MOST COMMENTED

[TELEVISION WATCH] Adrian Healey has replaced JP Dellacamera as ESPN's primary voice for Major League Soccer telecasts beginning this season.  The Englishman will work with former U.S. national team midfielder John Harkes as the analyst.

Healey formerly worked as a DJ on a alternative rock station in Boston before breaking into soccer broadcasting. He did New England Revolution games on regional networks before moving to ESPN.

He was a commentator at the last two World Cups for ESPN and worked on its Euro 2008 coverage.

Dellacamera and Harkes worked together for the last three seasons. Dellacamera is reported to be headed to Fox Soccer Channel to handle its Friday night MLS telecasts.

Also working on ESPN's 2011 MLS coverage will be Alexi Lalas (studio analyst), Max Bretos (studio host and play-by-play commentator), Rob Stone (match host and reporter) and Taylor Twellman (match and studio analyst).

    I have mixed feelings about this, as I think that both JP and Adrian are excellent announcers. So I'm happy for Adrian that his good work has been recognized. But I'm disappointed for JP, as I think he did a great job for ESPN and they are foolish to let him go. I hope that JP lands a steady gig with FSC, as he deserves a lead announcer role.

    We could see this coming when JP was not given the lead at the last World Cup. ESPN has an agenda, which is to promote its EPL telecasts. Therefore being an Italian-American and having more passion than any ten British Announcers counts for little. JP, we love you in NY. You're better off without ESPN. Good Luck!
