Have A Good Night Everybody

FOX Sports Ohio is excited to announce Have a Good Night Everybody, a one-hour special celebrating Joe Tait, long time Hall of Fame radio voice of the Cavaliers. The show, presented by KeyBank and Northeast Ohio Lincoln Dealers, will premiere in HD following the Cavaliers-Wizards game on Wednesday, April 13th, Tait’s final game as radio announcer before he retires from broadcasting.

Over Joe’s 39-year career with the Cavs, he has touched the lives of many individuals, from owners to head coaches, broadcasters to producers, players to fans. Everyone who crossed paths with Joe ultimately walked away with a fun Joe Tait story or memory. Much like Joe’s descriptive “tell it like it is” style of broadcasting that won the hearts of Cavs fans for nearly 40 years, this show tells many of these stories in an entertaining and informative way.
