Cohen's signature radio phrases included "A pleasant good afternoon/evening everybody", used at the start of every game; "Back to talk about it in a moment" at the conclusion of each game; "Swing and a miss, he struck him out!" (shortened to "Struck him out!" in recent years) after a meaningful strikeout; "It's outta here!'" when a player hits a home run; and ending the game by describing the final play and finishing with "...and the ball game is over!" He is known for his vivid and succinct description of the game action, his silky, yet delicately smooth baritone voice, corny joking with former broadcast partner Howie Rose, and his sometimes biting, but always well-informed baseball commentary. In 2003, Cohen became the Mets' lead radio voice following the retirement of Bob Murphy. In October 2006, during the Mets' postseason run, Cohen returned to the WFAN booth with Rose and newcomer Tom McCarthy for a couple of innings each game. Cohen has also called several National League Division Series for ESPN Radio.
