MLB Network is ramping up its programming slate this season, adding a new afternoon studio show as well as its first talk show.
The talk show is “Intentional Talk” (sounds like “intentional walk,” get it?) and will be hosted by former Boston Red Sox first baseman Kevin Millar and Chris Rose at 5 PM ET on weekdays. The show “will focus on the hot topics and events of the day with appearances by special guests from sports, entertainment and pop culture, and an on-screen ticker displaying the latest headlines and feedback on Twitter and Facebook,” according to MLB Network. The show will originate from MLB Network’s Studio 42, as well as from the host’s personal studios via Cisco TelePresence.
There is also a new afternoon studio show “The Rundown,” hosted by Hazel Mae and Matt Yallof. The show will give updates on games underway, as well as previews of that evening’s games. It will also feature live look-ins to batting practice and games in progress.
