Former NESN sports siren Hazel Mae will be the new face of the MLB Network, sources told the Herald yesterday.
Mae, who left the Red Sox [team stats]-Bruins [team stats] station in June after four years on the "SportsDesk," had been in talks with Channel 4. WBZ-TV reportedly wanted Mae to be the weekend sports anchor, but they couldn't agree on a salary and, besides, she had her eye on the lead anchor spot vacated by Bob Lobel.
The new MLB Network, which will air everything baseball around the clock, is based in New York and is expected to debut Jan. 1.
Mae's agent couldn't be reached yesterday and the MLB's press office didn't return calls.
