NY Stations To Outsource Sports Coverage?

sny.tv.pngThe New York Mets’ cable channel is in talks with both Ch. 11 and Ch. 4 about providing sports content in lieu of in-house sportscasters, reports Michael Starr at the NY Post.

“Our focus isn’t about delivering something cheaper or cost-effective, it’s about delivering the most comprehensive sports content in New York,” SNY President Steve Raab told the Post. “If that works better for a particular station’s equation, great. Our sell is not price, it’s quality. We have a four-and-a-half year track record and we have the resources.”

But of course price does factor in, as prominent sportscasters are costly. And if cutting them saves a little dough, well, it’s tough to believe that a station owner wouldn’t at least be tempted.
