NEWS: SHAKEUP AT SNY PUSHES YALLOF, MAZZILLI OUT; BRINGS CARLIN AND OJEDA IN
Mazzilli: Out Yallof: Out
Mets fans who've grown accustomed to pre and post-game studio host Matt Yallof's friendly and engaging manner will no longer be seeing that in 2009 on Sports Net New York (SNY) broadcasts of Mets games. Fans who enjoyed Lee Mazzilli's sharp post-game insights won't see those this year on the network.
Bob Raismann of the New York Daily News reports today that Yallof and Mazzilli are out and Chris Carlin and former Mets lefty starter Bob Ojeda are in. Carlin will take over Yallof's studio hosting duty, while Ojeda will serve as an in-studio analyst. For more details, here's a link to Raismann's Daily News column: dailynews.com
Raismann also reports that SNY's former Mets in-game reporter, Chris Cotter, has left the network and sports broadcasting to sign on as an anchor with Fox Business Channel.
