Jenny Dell Resurfaces as CBS NFL Sideline Reporter

Former NESN Red Sox sideline reporter Jenny Dell will be appearing on NFL sidelines this fall, as CBS announced its broadcast pairings for the 2014 season.

Part of the release noted that Tracy Wolfson would be joining the network’s top announcing team of Jim Nantz and Phil Simms as reporter. Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts have been promoted to the 2nd team, and Trent Green will join Greg Gumbel, after the retirement of Dan Dierdorf.

The release also noted that  THE NFL ON CBS will utilize additional sideline reporters during the season including  Jenny Dell and Evan Washburn.

It’s a nice way for Dell to land on her feet following her departure from NESN which was made complicated and messy after she and Red Sox player Will Middlebrooks announced that they were dating.

Comcast Launches Bruins On Demand

Similar to programming they’ve done for the Red Sox and Celtics in the past, Comcast has now launched Bruins on Demand – another way fans can catch up with latest from the Black and Gold.

Here is the release:

BOSTON – Comcast launched a new series of programs available as part of Bruins On Demand in partnership with the Boston Bruins and NESN. The partnership will deliver Bruins fans wall-to-wall coverage of the team, ranging from behind-the-scenes features to entire game replays.

Bruins On Demand is available to Comcast’s Xfinity TV customers to put fans in control and give them access to in-depth coverage of the players and team as well as press conferences and community events produced by the Boston Bruins. With the latest Bruins On Demand programs, fans can get to know Brad Marchand, Kevan Miller, Dougie Hamilton and other stars. In addition, Bruins On Demand offerings will include the “Behind the B” series as well as “The Week Ahead,” which is a preview of the on and off ice happenings of the team in the coming week produced by BruinsTV. Furthermore, Bruins On Demand enables fans to tune into replays of NESN’s Bruins game telecasts within four hours of each game’s conclusion. Games are available On Demand for 24 hours.

Bruins On Demand programming is updated regularly and is available around the clock during the season with the ability to pause, fast forward and rewind selections for Comcast’s Xfinity TV customers in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine. It’s easy to access just by selecting the “Get Local” category from the On Demand menu, then choosing “Bruins On Demand”. As with the vast majority of Comcast’s 100,000 On Demand programs available on TV and online each month, Bruins On Demand comes at no additional cost to the company’s TV customers.

“We pride ourselves on producing and delivering compelling content to Bruins fans,” said Bruins President Cam Neely. “With this partnership, we will create programing that will be delivered through Bruins On Demand making it convenient for Comcast subscribers to keep up with the Bruins on a daily basis.”

“The addition of Bruins On Demand to our Get Local On Demand programming – which also includes the Red Sox and the Celtics – is another big win for our customers,” said Steve Hackley, Senior Vice President of Comcast’s Greater Boston Region. “Bruins On Demand is perfect for busy fans to stay connected to the team at any time of day or night, with can’t miss features and full game replays that bring them all of the action on or off the ice.”
