This doesn’t deserve the “BREAKING NEWS” banner, but this news can certainly stand alone. Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal joins MLB Network as an insider. He joins Sports Illustrated’s Tom Verducci and Jon Heyman on a very deep bench.
MLB NETWORK ADDS KEN ROSENTHAL TO ON-AIR TALENT ROSTER
FoxSports.com Senior Writer Joins Studio Team as “Baseball Insider”
, June 29, 2009 – MLB Network today announced that Ken Rosenthal has joined its roster of on-air talent. Rosenthal will join the cast of MLB Tonight beginning Tuesday, June 30 at 6:00 p.m. ET. Rosenthal, who will continue his reporting for FoxSports.com and MLB on Fox, joins Sports Illustrated senior writers Tom Verducci and Jon Heyman as Baseball Insiders on the MLB Network team. Secaucus, N.J.
“Ken brings a wealth of on-air reporting experience and insight into the game and we’re excited to welcome him to MLB Network,” said Tony Petitti, president and CEO of MLB Network. “As we grow as a network, it’s important that we continue to bring fans the most up-to-date information from the best resources in the business.”
Rosenthal has served as lead field reporter for MLB on Fox since 2005. Prior to joining Fox Sports, Rosenthal worked as the national baseball writer for The Sporting News and as a sportswriter at the Baltimore Sun, where he was named Maryland Sportswriter of the Year five times by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association. He is a voting member of the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Good move by MLB Network. I think Rosenthal is quite good, although I know Washington Nationals fans won’t be sending him Christmas cards.
