Neil Hartman Is Out at CSN

Timed to coincide with almost the exact start of the NFL Draft, Neil Hartman announced on Facebook that he was leaving CSN after 19 years(!):

What an honor to be part of Comcast Sportsnet since its inception. After almost 19 years I am moving on to new opportunities.Thank you loyal viewers.

Very brief. Terse, almost. I heard that security was asked not to let him in the building. That might be protocol, but given just how long Neil was there, the abrupt nature of this seems a little strange.

Sure is, Tha. Neil has been there for two decades and, along with Michael Barkann and Leslie Gudel, was among the first live voices on the network. Surprised he didn’t get some sort of sign-off.

In a statement, CSN wrote: “We would like to thank Neil Hartman for his many years of service at Comcast SportsNet and wish him well in his future endeavors.”

Neil was well compensated, and I’m hearing his contract was up later this year. But that’s about the extent I know at the moment. Consider this the Bat Signal.

    1. *security was instructed to not let him in
      No one asks security if they want to let a criminal enter the building.

    2. Wrong, dipshit. He wrote it properly. The “not” never splits an infinitive. If you’re going to be pedantic, you’d best be right or you look like an asshole and a dumbass. Dumbass.

  1. Many years ago, my brother and i saw Neil drunk driving before a lasalle game that he was covering. He slammed his suv into another car in the parking lot. Nobody else was around because, again, it was a lasalle game.He drove to the other end of the lot and stumbled inside. Always appreciated Neil for that move. Good luck Neil.

      1. a,ll the ladies love to talk about how roob just buries his face ‘in it’ and slobbers all over like
        a bloodhound and they said he’s not really ‘big’.

    1. How about they replace him with a person of color? What would be wrong with adding a little diversity to the on-air talent, considering they broadcast in a city that is over 50% black?
