Forbes: Yankees, Red Sox Most Valuable Baseball Teams, Mets Value Down -13%

Forbes released its annual list of Major League Baseball team valuations.

As usual, the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox top the list, valued at $1.7 billion and $912 million, respectively.

Of the top 10 most valuable teams, all were worth more than last year, with one exception: The New York Mets. Plagued by financial issues, the Mets were valued at $747 million, down -13% from 2010.

The average value for an MLB team was up +7% to $523 million, while new ballparks and regional sports nets boosted revenue by +4% to $6.1 billion for the 30 teams.

Pitino will be in the New York studio on Saturday and Sunday and joins analysts Charles Barkley, Greg Anthony and Kenny Smith along with hosts Greg Gumbel and Ernie Johnson.

I’m crossing my fingers that he breaks out the white suit on Sunday.

Conan O’Brien to Take his show to TBS

Conan_4.12.jpgThe newsroom here at the National Association of Broadcasters convention in Las Vegas is buzzing with the news that Conan O’Brien is leaving broadcast, and will turn up next on cable TV.

The New York Times, TVGuide, Variety and just about everyone on Twitter, are reporting that O’Brien will join the late-night lineup on TBS this fall. The show will air at 11pmET, pushing George Lopez to Midnight.

This may be a relief for some FOX affiliates. Reports had surfaced last month that O’Brien was talking to the News Corp. network about taking his show to 11pmET/10pmCT, which would have meant FOX affils would have had to bump lucrative news or syndicated programming.
