Matt Vasgersian, who has been Channel 4 San Diego's television voice of the Padres for the past seven years, will head to New York City to become the lead anchor on the new MLB Network.If what has been said previously is true, MLB Network is going to be running a six hour highlights/updates show each night starting next season, so whoever anchors it had better be palatable. I've seen/listened to Vasgersian exactly one time, when I watched a Padres-Blue Jays game from a San Diego hotel room a year ago, but (a) he seemed like a good announcer; and (b) has received nothing but kind words from San Diego fans on the various message boards I've seen today.
Sounds like a good hire.
Psst! Matt: Feel free to forward on my fabulous programming suggestions!
