IN DEMAND: In N.Y., Andrew Marchand cited sources as saying that ESPN analyst and Mets advisor Jessica Mendoza is a "candidate to call both softball and baseball for NBC at the Olympics in Tokyo this summer." The role would be in "addition to whatever her ESPN role ends up being" (N.Y. POST, 2/2).
SWITCHING SIDES: GOLFCHANNEL.com's Will Gray noted Colt Knost is "retiring from professional golf" and will be "trading in his clubs for a microphone, having accepted a broadcasting opportunity with CBS Sports in addition to his ongoing radio show on SiriusXM" (GOLFCHANNEL.com, 1/31).
