DREAM JOBS? In Phoenix, Paola Boivin wrote the D’Backs TV announcer openings “have become quite the coveted jobs,” since the vacancies give announcers the “chance to work for a well-regarded organization." There also is the "reality that many Major League Baseball announcers already live” in the area. Some "names to consider" include Dodgers announcer Steve Lyons, Rays announcer Brian Anderson and former Rays announcer Kevin Kennedy (ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 10/7).
PUTTING UP STAKES: In Miami, Douglas Hanks cites sources as saying that Univision and ABC “will base their new English-language cable network in the Miami area, ending the possibility that the venture into Hispanic broadcasting might head for California, New York or Texas.” Florida Gov. Rick Scott is “scheduled to announce the decision” tomorrow at the annual meeting of the Beacon Council, Miami-Dade County’s economic development agency. With Univision “already headquartered in Doral, Miami-Dade County was seen as the likely site for the network and online operation Univision is launching with ABC” (MIAMI HERALD, 10/9).
