Actress Alyssa Milano will be covering baseball online for TBS Hot Corner on MLB.com.
TBS Hot Corner is a new broadband channel from Turner Broadcasting’s TBS, which will be broadcasting the major league division series and the National League Championship Series for the first time this season.
Ms. Milano, who has starred in “Charmed,” “Who’s the Boss?” and will have a recurring role in “My Name is Earl,” already has a popular blog on MLB.com and this year launched a baseball-themed clothing line.
Beginning Sept. 17, Milano will contribute regular reports and features from major league stadia as teams race to make the playoffs. The reports will range from interviews with players, coaches and fans, to features on calorie counting at the park and the best in baseball attire.
“Alyssa Milano has been a popular figure in the world of entertainment for a number of years and we’re excited to pair her star power with her passion for baseball to give fans an insiders look at the MLB postseason,” said Jeff Ogan, Turner Sports senior director of production. “In her role on TBS Hot Corner she’ll take fans behind-the-scenes from the clubhouse to the concession stands, offering entertaining reports on all things baseball like only she can.”
In addition to the on-demand daily news reports and live webcasts found on TBS Hot Corner, beginning Oct. 3 the channel will also feature multiple streams of exclusive coverage from MLB match-ups carried on TBS, including a unique “Dugout Cam” that will give fans a birds-eye view inside both team dugouts during each game. Additional on-field cameras will be announced upon the Oct. 3rd launch.
