” I haven’t signed anything”
That’s all Jeff Marek would, politely, tell me when I reached him this afternoon to discuss the rampant rumblings filling my blackberry over the last couple of days. Speculation is everywhere that Marek is in play with both Rogers (Sportsnet/Sportsnet Fan 590) and TSN (TSN Radio/TSN) both vying for the former co-host of the Bill Watter’s show.
Marek, it would seem would fill a multitude of roles at the campus that Ted built, however, I was told emphatically that Merek isn’t in the running for the Maple Leafs beat gig formerly held by Howard Berger. Despite what many may hope, I am also told that Marek isn’t being considered as a potential replacement should there be a change in the 1-4pm slot currently held by Andrew Krystal.
Over at TSN, I am assuming (which I shouldn’t do) that Marek would replace the station’s current ratings leader Dan Patrick and go head to head against that very same Mr. Krystal, while joining what is a deep hockey roster on TSN’s TV side.
Of course Marek could hold firm and remain at the CBC.
With the NHL season coming to a head, it seems that Marek is the man in high demand. Should be interesting to see where he ends up.
I have no clue where he ends up. I’m putting my chips on Rogers, but hey I am not much of a gambler.
