Former NESN anchor and Red Sox field reporter Tina Cervasio has landed a new gig in New York with the MSG Network.
From the network’s press release:
MSG announced today that the network has signed Tina Cervasio as a host and reporter for MSG and MSG Plus (formerly FSN New York). Cervasio will serve as a co-host for MSG’s nightly sports and entertainment program “MSG, NY.” In addition, she will contribute feature reports for MSG and MSG Plus as well as serve as a sideline reporter for the MLS New York Red Bulls coverage on MSG. Cervasio will begin appearing on-air toward the end of March.
This announcement comes after MSG increased its signature show “MSG, NY” from five to seven days a week and expanded the show to a one-hour format. “MSG, NY” includes highlights, in-depth features and analysis on the top sports and entertainment news in the New York metropolitan area. ChevyOffers.com is the presenting sponsor for the program.
“We are excited that Tina is joining MSG and MSG Plus, and look forward to the fresh approach, energetic personality and knowledge she brings to complement our sports and entertainment programming,” said Lydia Murphy-Stephans, executive vice president, programming and production for MSG Media. “Tina’s strong background in sports broadcasting, combined with the fact that she is a tri-state area native, make her a great fit for our networks as we continue to bring viewers the top stories in New York sports and entertainment.”
Cervasio will share hosting duties on “MSG, NY” with Jason Horowitz and Jonathan Coachman. Contributing reporters for the show include Scott Lasky, Jill Martin and Eddie Trunk, along with special appearances by Walt ‘Clyde’ Frazier, Stan Fischler, and Dave Maloney. On New York Red Bulls broadcasts, Cervasio will join analyst Shep Messing and play-by-play announcer Steve Cangialosi.
