Harold Reynolds is back in the broadcast booth. Well, the virtual booth at least. The former ESPN anchor who was let go by the Worldwide Leader last July in the wake of a sexual harassment scandal, will host a show on MLB.com five days a week starting after the All-Star break. Reynolds “will address hot topics in the game, bring in newsmakers through his extensive contacts and interact with users through e-mails, instant messages, chats and a forthcoming MLBlog.”
The former second baseman is still immersed in the wrongful termination lawsuit he filed against ESPN.
Here at the FBNY world headquarters, we are celebrating Reynolds’ with cheers and high-fives, but absolutely no hugs.
