AGENT SAYS ALBERT IN TALKS REGARDING A RETURN TO SPORTS WORK
Published April 14, 1998
Marv Albert's agent Evan Bell said that his client "is in 'serious' negotiations for at least four play-by-play and sports-anchor jobs," according to Laura Italiano of the N.Y. POST. One of those jobs is an anchor position on MSG Network's "SportsDesk," while the other three involved basketball play-by-play. Bell: "We're concentrating on basketball right now and talking to three separate entities. It could be working for a team. It could be a cable or over-the-air network. But nothing will be finalized until after the [NBA] playoffs." MSG execs declined comment. Italiano added that "insiders" said MSG is "conducting market surveys to prove to advertisers that Albert's return would be welcomed by audiences" (N.Y. POST, 4/12).
