WatchDog has learned that former Newsday scribe Jon Heyman of SI, SNY and WFAN will be joining the MLB Network as an "insider."Heyman joins Harold Reynolds, Al Leiter, Barry Larkin, Matt Vasgersian, Hazel Mae and Dan Plesac as on-air personalities for the network, whose 1/1/09 launch is set to be the biggest in cable history.
Heyman is expected to keep the SI gig, but at this early stage of this news development I am not clear on what it means for his roles as a contributor to SNY and WFAN.
