Passing of Carlos Silva


It is with great sadness that we relay news of the passing of our friend Carlos Silva, who lost his battle with cancer this morning at age 50.

Silva, a native of Caracas, Venezuela, was the producer and engineer for Yankees games on WCBS Radio 880 AM (Spanish and English) for eight seasons. The 2013 season marked his 13th year working on Yankees radio broadcasts and his 24th overall season in baseball. It also marked his third year producing and conducting interviews in Spanish for yesnetwork.com.

Silva also worked for ESPN Radio, Phillies Spanish radio, and the NBA's Orlando Magic and New Jersey Nets. He was also responsible for the translation and recording of Spanish broadcast spots throughout the season.

In the offseason, Silva resided in Lutz, Fla. He leaves behind his wife, Teresa, and their children Leslie, Kimberly and Matthew.
