CSN Bay Area

Mychael Urban leaves Comcast SportsNet Bay Area

Last night Mychael Urban announced a change to his Twitter handle, dropping the “CSN” portion and moving in what looks like a new direction:



Urban’s tweet caused people to wonder what was going on and if Urban would continue to serve as CSN Bay Area’s “MLB Insider.” 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.”

No word on what led to Urban’s departure or any potential replacement(s). It also isn’t clear whether Comcast is looking for another MLB Insider or might split the duties and employ separate Giants and A’s Insiders.

Urban recently left KNBR to serve as an “Insider” for 95.7 FM “The Game” along with CSN Insiders including Matt Maiocco, Matt Steinmetz and Brodie Brazil.
