MSG TURNS THE PAGE SOONER THAN EXPECTED: IS MARV ON DECK?
Published February 24, 1998
Bob Page was "yanked" as anchor of MSG Network's "SportsDesk," effective immediately, according to Phil Mushnick of the N.Y. POST. MSG, which recently informed Page that his contract would not be renewed, had "originally planned" to keep him on-air through April, but Mushnick reports that Page "has publicly and privately bad-mouthed MSG's decision to let him go," leading to his early removal from the network. Mushnick: "Speculation has mounted that the Garden will offer Page's position to Marv Albert" (N.Y. POST, 2/24). MSG Exec Producer Mike McCarthy, on the Albert speculation: "That is speculation. We've had no discussions with him. I wouldn't rule anything out" (NEWSDAY, 2/24).
