Alex Rodriguez, the polarizing former Yankees slugger, is poised to become a fixture on broadcast TV after signing a deal with ABC.
CNN reports that A-Rod will make “occasional appearances” on “Good Morning America,” “World News Tonight,” and “Nightline.” The report cites a source who’s familiar with the agreement.
Neither ABC nor the Rodriguez camp was commenting.
“It’s not yet known when Rodriguez will first appear on the network or how long his contract will run,” CNN notes. “The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.”
The report adds: “Rodriguez retired from baseball last August, leaving behind a mixed legacy. He’s fourth on the all-time homer list, but admitted in 2013 that he had used performance-enhancing drugs. He was suspended for the entire 2014 season.”
