MLB Network Plans Wall-to-Wall World Series Coverage
With the World Series matchup set, MLB Network’s studio shows will hit the road as part of its expanded on-site programming, which began yesterday in Kansas City. MLB Network’s extensive coverage of the AL Champion Kansas City Royals and NL champion San Francisco Giants will include previews, analysis, highlights, and interviews on High Heat with Christopher Russo, MLB Now, Intentional Talk, and the flagship program MLB Tonight before and after every game.
MLB Tonight’s on-site coverage will be anchored by Greg Amsinger, Brian Kenny and Matt Vasgersian with analysis from Sean Casey, 2010 World Series champion Mark DeRosa, 1993 and 1997 World Series champion Al Leiter, Dan Plesac, and 1995 World Series champion John Smoltz. Studio coverage during MLB Tonight throughout the World Series will be anchored by Scott Braun, Fran Charles, and Paul Severino with analysis from Eric Byrnes, 2013 World Series champion Ryan Dempster, Cliff Floyd, Darryl Hamilton, and Bill Ripken. This marks the first World Series that both DeRosa and Dempster will cover as analysts.
Airing live daily from each World Series ballpark is MLB Network’s afternoon lineup of High Heat with Christopher Russo presented by Liberty Mutual, MLB Now presented by the U.S. Army, hosted by Brian Kenny, and Intentional Talk presented by the U.S. Army, hosted by Chris Rose and 2004 World Series champion Kevin Millar.
MLB Network’s coverage of the World Series is part of 200 hours of live coverage of the 2014 Postseason. MLB Tonight presented by Bacardi will air before and after every World Series game with reporters including Peter Gammons, who is covering his 42nd World Series, Heidi Watney and Matt Yallof on-site at each ballpark.
