Mychael Urban is out as a Giants and MLB Insider at Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, according to a source familiar with the cable outlet.
Urban, a past writer for MLB and a contributor to KNBR, had been with Comcast since 2010.
No official word on why Urban has been let go, but we'll be on it.
UPDATE: Initial word from a source: Urban may be invited back to Comcast in a future date in some, as yet, undesignated capacity. His contract was simply "not renewed."
Again, we will check for specifics.
UPDATE 2: Source: They, (Comcast), had "personality/content", differences with him, (Urban). Maybe too much "Inside Zito?", (among other things). Maybe, we're still checking. Stay tuned.
Here's the official statement from Comcast:"Mychael Urban is no longer employed with Comcast SportsNet. We appreciate his contributions over the last few years and we wish him well.”
