Matthew Cerrone, the owner of MetsBlog has teamed up with SportsNet New York (SNY). SNY broadcasts Mets and Jets games. As for the agreement, MetsBlog goes largely unchanged, but Cerrone will work with the network to create original online video content.
The real kicker though is that Cerrone will now have access to the players and team.
Like you, my biggest concern had been that SNY will try to alter the site’s voice. However, and I cannot reiterate this point enough, it is still Matthew Cerrone’s MetsBlog.com – in every way, shape and form. From this point forward, though, in addition to writing MetsBlog in the exact same way you have come to trust, I now have better access to the team; better access to video content, and top-of-the-line equipment and producers to help create it; and, most important, you will get better and more original material to read and watch throughout the day.
Congrats to Matthew who follows in Henry Abbott’s True Hoops footsteps in partnering with a major media organization – and still getting to remain a blogger.
