Out with the old network and in with the new.
Two hundred high-paying jobs are coming to town as Major League Baseball’s cable network gets going in MSNBC’s old digs at 40 Hartz Way on the west end of town.
The A.P. reports that those salaries will average $150K and that the network has signed a 15-year lease for the space. (Although town residents might take minor offense to the A.P.’s opener – “Think of it as a diamond in the rough.”)
So many tax incentives were thrown at MLB that the network’s president likened the sweeteners to a “Chinese menu.”
So if you happen to see Bob Costas walking through the Plaza, be sure to say “hi.”
