Turner's David Levy Says Keith Olbermann Discussions Began In December
Published June 6, 2013
MEDIA DARLING: In N.Y., Bob Raissman noted Levy also extended the contract of analyst Ron Darling, which "takes him out of the running as a candidate" to replace Fox MLB analyst Tim Carver. There was "plenty of speculation pointing to Darling having a major shot at the Fox job." Darling said that "neither he or his agent had conversations" with Fox, but that he "was 'intrigued' by the Fox gig because he held McCarver in such high regard." Darling said of the impact the Fox speculation had on his re-signing with Turner, "I don’t know if it got me more money, but speeding up the process was a good thing." Levy said that the Fox situation "played no role in his decision to extend Darling’s contract" (NYDAILYNEWS.com, 6/5).
