Earlier today, Jen Royle announced via her Twitter account (@JenRoyleMASN, which is sure to change as well) that she will be leaving her position with MASN Sports officially on March 31st and accepting a role with 105.7 The Fan. When it was announced a few months ago that the Orioles would be partnering with WBAL 1090 for game broadcasts, it became news that Jen Royle, who held jobs with both MASN and 105.7, would need to basically pick one side to stick with now that 105.7 would no longer be the flagship station for Orioles baseball. Royle tweeted to give the announcement to her followers:
Dear Baltimore and DC,
I’m ready to tell you – Due to CBS radio losing Orioles flagship, unfortunately my last day at MASN is March 31
Me leaving MASN… that’s the bad news. Good news to follow… hang tight.
I’m staying at CBS/105.7 because it was important for me to continue covering the Ravens. I’m very excited about the O’s pregame show!
In a later tweet to a follower, Royle said that she will not only be doing the pre-game show for Opening Day, but also for every home game Monday-Friday from 6:00-7:15 PM.
She also tweeted later on that the name of the pre-game show on 105.7 will be “Baltimore Baseball Tonight.”
We wish Jen Royle the best of luck in her transition to solely 105.7 starting in April!
What do you think of this move? Did you enjoy Royle’s coverage on MASN covering the visiting clubhouse, or is she better suited for more of the Ravens coverage with 105.7?
