Roch Joins MASN

I got an email from MASN with the press release announcing that now former Baltimore Sun beat writer/columist/blogger/vaudeville comedian Rock Kubatko will be joining them. Good for him. I do like Roch’s blog because its updated quite a bit and he has a ton of access within the team. I could do without the “take my wife,please” and “man, I had a long flight from Florida. My arms are worn out” type jokes. But whatever.

And apparently Peter Schmuck is replacing_Roch over at the Sun, and apparently he likes Hawaiian shirts.

Here’s the MASN release.

 

Rock Kubatko Joins MASN

Brings his popular blog “Roch Around the Clock”
to
MASNsports.com
Friday, August 1  


(BALTIMORE, M.D.) – MASN, the local leader in live sports entertainment, has announced that longtime Baltimore sports journalist and personality Roch Kubatko has joined the network as an on-air personality and blogger, bringing his successful Roch Around the Clock blog to MASNsports.com.  Roch’s first blog for MASN will appear on Friday, August 1 at www.masnsports.com.

As part of MASN’s All Star talent team, Kubatko will continue to blog about the Orioles and the Ravens.  MASNsports.com also plans to feature live chats, online call-in shows, and video blogs featuring Kubatko in the future.

In addition to his presence online, Kubatko will appear on O’s Xtra and Ravens Xtra, the Orioles Hot Stove Show and the Anita Marks show.  During baseball season, Kubatko will also co-host selected pre and post game shows for the Orioles Radio network, WHFS.

In twenty-one years with the Baltimore Sun, Kubatko became one of the region’s most talented sportswriters, having won the 2004 Maryland Sports Writer of the Year award from the National Sportswriters and Sportscasters Association.  During his tenure at the Sun he covered nearly every major sporting event in North America, including the NBA, the NFL, NCAA lacrosse, boxing, the World Series, the CFL Grey Cup and the MLB All-Star games. This is his twelfth season covering the Orioles.

In November 2005, Kubatko began writing Roch Around the Clock , a blog which quickly became a central internet destination for sports fans in Baltimore and nationally.  Attracting more than 100,000 page views every week, Kubatko’s blog rapidly became the most highly trafficked blog at the Baltimore Sun and was often the most visited sports blog within the Tribune Company of newspapers.
 
With player and talent blogs, up to the minute video clips, two beat writers, series previews and game statistics, MASNsports.com provides maximum access to the Orioles twenty four hours a day.
