Ken Rosenthal Can No Longer Write for Fox Sports All-Video Website
The day after the Major League Baseball All Star Game is widely considered the slowest time of the year because of the lack of live sports. ESPN Radio holds their annual ESPN Radio-thon to benefit The V Foundation for Cancer Research. The ESPY's air on ESPN tonight, but if you're a diehard baseball fan, you can still enjoy the Triple-A All Star Game from Tacoma. In fact, 600 ESPN El Paso will air the game beginning with the pregame show at 6:30pm.
While MLB teams prepare for the second half of the season Friday night, longtime baseball writer and columnist Ken Rosenthal just tweeted that he will no longer be writing for FoxSports.com. No, he was not laid off, but that reason makes a lot more sense than what he explained to his 872K Twitter followers.
Call me old fashioned, but I enjoy READING my sports news online and only watch videos for highlights or something memorable. I can't wait to see the results of this new digital experiment by FOX Sports. Strangely enough, they still include a "News" tab on their specific sports menu bars, but every story is written by the Associated Press.
If you have never followed Rosenthal on his Facebook page, you are not alone. I hardly use Facebook to find stories from writers I enjoy reading. However, sign me up for Ken's new social media platform until he finds a new home. I wish 600 ESPN El Paso could afford to pay Rosenthal for his work, but I am happy that they can still pay me after 22 years with this radio station.
