Any word on Alex Chappell's status?


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

Still hot.

Oh, you mean her employment status. No indication from MASN or the Nats. She is in game talent, like Bob and FP, so maybe she's safe. I suspect that she's not paid nearly as much as Porter or Kolko, which might work in her favor.

Yeah, very hot. And very married, unfortunately.

She just announced that she is gone. No word from any other MASN Nationals employees.

From the Nationals:

Quote
MASN has notified us that they are parting ways with Dan Kolko, Bo Porter and Alex Chappell. In addition, MASN has cut Nats Xtra to just 15 minutes pre- and post-game. To say that we are incredibly disappointed and upset by MASN’s decisions would be a gross understatement. To be clear - these decisions were made by MASN and against our wishes. As we have expressed to both MASN and Major League Baseball, we are very concerned about the negative impact these decisions could have on our fans especially now when content shared via broadcast and digital channels is vital for them to stay connected with our team. We want to thank Dan, Bo and Alex for their professionalism and for being good stewards of our team’s story over the years. They are part of the Washington Nationals family and we wish them all the best.

Julie Alexandria, who used to be the Nats dugout reporter for MASN, made some comments on Twitter that run counter to the reaction from the team and most of the fans. Basically she said that it is common in MLB for the teams to pay for their own pre-game and post-game shows, that the networks don't profit from them but the teams do, that the Nats were given the option of taking them over and declined.

From Julie:

To my knowledge of the situation, the team was given the choice: Pay for the talent/show/production expense to air on MASN, or don't pay, and have no show. MASN will no longer be incurring costs for the shoulder programming or pre/post/in game content. They chose not to do so.

Everyone is mad at sports networks for their decision making but don’t realize the actual inner workings of tv sports rights deals and fees/ revenue. The team has everything to gain from these shoulder content shows (pre/post game, magazine shows etc)

It would be broadcast on MASN, just paid for by the team .. not by .. MASN. Thats how a LOT of Teams/RSN's work.

Correct, [the Nats] do not own MASN, at least not to my understanding - but it is their decision to pay or in this case, not to pay for the production/talent. That's my point I'm trying to illustrate here.

Ok, I’ll just leave this right here: if a team wants to have talent, they can pay for it. On the field, in the booth, on a mic, and in their office. It isn’t the job of the network. The team benefits most from programming around it. If they want it, they can budget for it.

The network doesn’t really profit from these shows- that’s just it- so while ppl are super upset - which I get - I mean, I understand the frustration- but it all comes down to business and money.



Julie makes another point about MASN dropping these show while at the same time not paying the Nats rights fees. I agree about the two decisions being separate but she is wrong about it being just business, the MASN mess has become very personal between Angelos and the Lerners.

Well, one thing is totally independent of another - if you are buying say, candy from me, and I owe you money from a previous deal, it doesn’t change the price of the candy bar. I get that people are upset - but as the movie says “it’s not personal, Michael, it’s business.”


This really sucks for Byron, Alex, Dan, and Bo. I know that most Nats fans hope they get picked up locally to continue their coverage of the Nats, but in the meantime they are probably looking at other options from all over. It's a tough business to be in.

Since Julie has a "it's business folks" attitude about this, maybe she can explain this comment:

if a team wants to have talent, they can pay for it. On the field, in the booth, on a mic, and in their office. It isn’t the job of the network. The team benefits most from programming around it. If they want it, they can budget for it.

Funding shoulder shows in local sports programming aint cheap. She's basically saying that AFTER the Nats have committed to about $200mm in payroll, the club should have known that despite about 15 years of precedent-setting by MASN to fund the shoulder shows, the Lerners shouldve had crystal balls on their desks and, tsk tsk, planned for this to happen NOW --?!

She's never been on the ad revenue side. A club who SUDDENLY has to PRODUCE a local sports show, hire (or re-hire) a Sales Dept, AND have 60 days prior to Opening Day to sell a season's worth of advertising & promotional inventory ?!?!?! Give me an effin break.

I'm not a lawyer but this seems obvious: The Orioles know that if the Lerners want to dissolve the current MASN deal, the Lerners would have to sue MLB. Which the Lerners obviously dont want to do. The Orioles know this, and are using this leverage to their own gain.

Great point, while it could be argued that it was within MASN's rights to stop funding the pre and post game shows, cancelling them right before the season starts was timed to screw the Nats, the Os had time to prepare. This was not the action of a business partner moving in another direction, this is was designed to damage the other party.
