Broadcasting changes

Recommended Posts

Hunter has been a loyal employee for a long time, and I'm glad the club kept him in some capacity.  He would be perfect for things like emcee'ing opening day, or reunions, or season ticket holder dinners, whatever.  But it was pretty clear that the fan base was not happy with his broadcasting performance, so they moved on.  This is the kind of action we need to see from the Orioles - running it as a merit-based business, instead of an ole boys club.

What was he sick with

Rich Dubroff Jim Palmer talks about Orioles’ rebuild, their pitching, and his health

Quote

 

Q: What can you tell us about your health and how you’re doing?

A: “I got shingles, and it ended up invading my spinal cord, which is called myelitis. The whole left side of my spinal cord was infected. It’s the varicella virus. It was having a party in my spinal cord. I was losing weight.

“I still feel postherpetic neuralgia, where it hurts as much today as the day I got them. The scars are kind of gone. It really gets into your nervous system.

“A couple of days before Labor Day, I took a thoracic MRI. Five days in the hospital, brain scans, back scans. I was losing weight because I was not eating.

“It was kind of a distraction to watch the games. I was losing weight. I lost 10, 12 pounds, and I never lose 10, 12 pounds. I had a leg biopsy on my birthday. We’re just trying to find out if there’s anything else but the myelitis. I got as low as 194, 195 pounds. I’m back to 202, lifting weights, working out. I feel fine. I never felt bad.”

So Gary Throne is still the main guy correct? Is he going to do any spring games?

No,just Scott  

I know that was reported somewhere but I can't fully believe it. Gary will want to do at least one game to get back in shape. And to hang around the camp and talk to some guys. Get a feel for the team.

I don't mind the changes other than Garceau doing play by play ending the Scott & Jeremy duo on 105.7.  Replacing that with Jason La Canfora in any capacity means that I'll never listen to 105.7 again.

Steve Melewski has a nice writeup on Melanie Newman, who brings experience from MiLB, ACC, etc. to the table.  @interloper

"She’s had some nice chances along the way and feels ready to make her MLB debut. And she’ll work for the Orioles in a variety of roles on radio and TV. On opening day, she’ll be the sideline reporter for MASN. She said her schedule calls for her to be on radio for 58 games and for about the same total on television.

“My first opportunity was with a Diamondbacks affiliate,” Newman said. “Then I ended up with the Rangers and then last year with Boston. I’m getting a lot of jokes now like I’ve jumped to the other side of the fence. But with how welcoming they have been and how much they want to utilize all I can do, I feel really fortunate. Every other opportunity I would think about and look at was having to choose. Do you want to be in the booth or on the sidelines? To do a bit of everything here and to really bring out the stories we’ll have this year excites me the most that the box doesn’t have to exist anymore.”
