Ken Rosenthal will join MLB Network as an "Insider"

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.com and FOX's Saturday MLB coverage will be joining the MLB Network as an "Insider," beginning tomorrow. Rosenthal joins SI's Jon Heyman and Tom Verducci in that role.

Here is some of the release, courtesy of Fang's Bites:
Secaucus, N.J., 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.

“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.”
Personally I can't stand Rosenthal and his pre-rehearsed diatribes but maybe it will be different when he's on the set.
