Ed Coleman will be back covering the Mets, but won’t be hosting the pre- and postgame shows, or doing play-by-play, on WOR-AM.

He will be serving strictly as WFAN’s Mets beat reporter. WOR suits did not look for continuity in their first broadcast season. A radio source said they wanted to shake things up and even were reluctant to bring Howie Rose back.

Mets brass stuck its beak into that situation, but apparently didn’t go to the mat for either Coleman or Josh Lewin, who likely will be back but not under a long term deal.
