The deep, friendly voice and black frame glasses that have meant sports for Minnesotans for 50 years is retiring from WCCO-TV. Sports broadcaster Mark Rosen started at the television station when he was a junior in high school. That’s long before Twins favorite Joe Mauer was swinging his baby bottle. Before the Timberwolves and the Wild were found in Twin Cities arenas instead of in nature. Before the Twins scored World Series victories in 1987 and 1991. Before the Vikings were wearing Super Bowl rings (oh, wait …). Rosen is in the Minnesota Broadcasting Hall of Fame and leaves as the longest-tenured sports personality in any major U.S. city. Minnesotans have seen him on their Magnavox home TV consoles with built-in hi-fi, on black-and-white portables with rabbit ears on the porch at the cabin, on thin, flat-screen HD TVs in the living room and on the phone in their hand. He’ll continue to talk sports on the radio, but jokes he can get rid of his sport coats and ties, … [Read more...] about For 50 years, WCCO’s Mark Rosen brought sports into our homes

Though the standard operating procedure on Air Force One now requires televisions on board to be tuned to Fox, the president’s preferred channel, Mrs. Trump ultimately has freedom over what she watches, the East Wing said Wednesday. The statement was delivered in response to a report in The New York Times describing the president’s displeasure over Mrs. Trump’s television being tuned to CNN on the first couple’s recent European trip. In a statement sent to CNN, the first lady’s spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, said that it was “kind of silly” to ask what the first lady watches on TV, then added, in parenthesis, “any channel she wants.” The statement is … [Read more...] about Melania Trump Can Watch Whatever She Wants on TV, the East Wing Says
Don’t look now, but the disaster that’s been the Rockies bullpen, which still holds a National League-worst 5.53 ERA, is showing slight signs of progress. No, it’s certainly not even close to pitching like a $100 million-plus investment should warrant, but the unit’s gears are churning, ever slowly, in a positive direction. Chris Rusin has only allowed one earned run in his last seven appearances, a 2.25 ERA in that time compared with his 6.55 mark on the season a whole. The left-hander also posted two straight scoreless outings of two and two-plus innings, with his one-hit fifth and sixth Thursday critical in the Rockies’ roller-coaster win. Manager Bud Black noted he’s seen better action and increased downward location on Rusin’s pitches throughout June. Scott Oberg and Mike Dunn returned from the disabled list in San Francisco, and Black immediately called upon Oberg to toss 1.1 innings of scoreless relief to keep Colorado hanging around in … [Read more...] about Rockies Insider: Is the bullpen trending in a positive direction?
NEW YORK - AT&T (T) is launching a new streaming service incorporating TV networks from the Time Warner company it just bought. The WatchTV service, a cable-like package of more than 30 TV channels delivered over the internet, is an example of new "skinny bundles" coming from telecom and broadband providers as more people watch TV online. Competitors include Sling TV, PlayStation Vue and AT&T's own DirecTV Now. WatchTV will be free for subscribers of two unlimited wireless phone plans AT&T is launching. Others can get WatchTV for $15 -- $20 less than DirecTV Now, but with just half the channels. Thursday's announcement comes just days after AT&T closed its $81 billion Time Warner deal. AT&T said it needs to combine its distribution channels with entertainment properties to compete with internet-based rivals like Amazon (AMZN), Netflix (NFLX) and Google (GOOG), although the wireless carrier has a direct connection to its 92 million subscribers that its internet … [Read more...] about Now with Time Warner, AT&T starts streaming TV service
