Marc Zumoff and Malik Rose are going to have to find a new 12-foot tall sidekick for Sixers games– Meredith Marakovits is leaving for the Yankees.
Comcast SportsNet Sixers sideline reporter Meredith Marakovits has been named the New York Yankees’ clubhouse reporter for the YES Network.
She will be part of Yankees’ telecasts, pregame and postgame shows, and the “Yankees Batting Practice Today” show. Marakovits will also appear on additional Yankees programming and will contribute to YESNetwork.com.
Her last day with CSN is April 4. The Yankees’ season opener is April 6.
This sounds like an opening for CSN's new freelance spot-starter Sharla McBride. She's not gigantic. But, this:
Proud to be sporting my first tan lines of 2012! #LoveTheSunshine
