Here's the linkage to today's media column, featuring a bit on Lou Merloni. In the time I've been on the sports media beat, I'm yet to hear anyone have anything but the highest praise for the way the former Sox utilityman treats people and goes about preparing for each show, whether he's on radio or TV.
"Lou's a great man," said Comcast SportsNet New England assistant news director Morry Levine, who during his time at NECN helped Merloni begin segueing into a sports media career while he was still playing baseball. "He wants to be the best and he works extremely hard for it, and he wants to learn. You really want to work with someone like that."
Always nice to hear about an ex-athlete who takes his second career as seriously as his first.
