Goldstein to call Miami Dolphins preseason games – and stay with Panthers



Steve Goldstein, the longtime television voice of the Florida Panthers, will trade the ice for the grill later this summer as he calls the Miami Dolphins preseason games on CBS-4 where he works as a presenter.

Goldstein, who has been with the Panthers in one capacity or another since 1995, will appear on the Dolphins show alongside former Miami stars Jason Taylor and Kim Bokamper.

But don’t worry, Panthers fans: Goldie isn’t going anywhere.

“The only thing I leave the Panthers is if they kick me out,” Goldstein said over the weekend. “It works great because preseason football is in August and the NHL training camp doesn’t even start until September.

“It is really shaping up to be a great situation for me. As it has been for the last 20 years, the Panthers have been very supportive. They are really happy that I got this job and I will be there. ‘Appreciate This in no way interferes with the Panthers.

This will be Goldstein’s first foray into the main call for NFL football games, although he has done a bit of everything during a broadcasting career that began at Syracuse University.

Goldstein called the Syracuse football games for three years as a student.

“That was a long time ago,” Goldstein said with a laugh. “But you know the old adage: if you can play hockey, you can do it all. “

In 2007, the Panthers moved Goldstein to the TV booth after spending two seasons as the team’s radio voice and he also covered the Olympics and Stanley Cup Finals on the radio.

This won’t be Goldstein’s first experience with the Dolphins as he hosted pre and post-game shows on the team’s radio network from 1995 to 2004 and again from 2012 to 2015.

“I am very happy to work with Jason Taylor and Kim Bokamper, someone I have known for a long time and who has worked with him before,” said Goldstein. “Broadcasting the Dolphins, the NFL, is very exciting. I used to do radio for the team so it’s nice to go back.

“It should be really fun, it’s a good team and there will be a lot of eyes going into the preseason. There’s a lot at stake. They have some good roster battles, everyone wants to see how Tua is doing. I’m really looking forward to it. “

Goldstein, Taylor and Bokamper will play in two of the three exhibition games in August.

The first game is on August 14 at 1 p.m. against the host Chicago Bears and the second is on August 21 at 7 a.m. when the Atlanta Falcons come to Hard Rock Stadium. Game three, against host Cincinnati Bengals, will be broadcast nationally on CBS.

Once the preseason is over, Goldstein will get fit for hockey by returning to cover the US Open for ESPN and Tennis Channel.
