Andy Katz joins BTN for studio/broadcasts
AA: Katz joins BTN

"A BTN spokesman said the details of Katz’s role are still being ironed out but that the reporter will work with BTN in a part-time role, primarily in studio but also as part of select game broadcasts."

"Katz was one of ESPN’s top college basketball voices and is one of the media’s top authorities on the sport. He knows how to write and has television experience in a number of roles. It’s no surprise to see him land a solid gig for the upcoming season."

"What we don’t know about Katz’s agreement with BTN is whether he had to break his ESPN contract in the process. ESPN has been enforcing non-competes for laid-off personalities still under contract there but allowing them to negotiate terms on which they can work for other networks."

I think this is a great add by BTN even if it only part-time. Katz is great and a big name. The thing to keep an eye on is the paragraph above : the non-compete. Curious to see what happens.

Never liked Katz when he was at ESPN, but I guess he is a big name, so I get why they brought him in.
