ESPN is going to get some competition from Comcast SportsNet on the local website front.
CSN announced Monday T.K. Gore will become its new director of digital media. Mr. Gore had been director of brand marketing and communications for Universal Sports, a division of NBC Sports.
Jon Litner, the president of Comcast , said he hopes CSN will have a new, enhanced website ready to go by the fall.
"We need to be expanding more on our digital platforms," Mr. Litner said.
Mr. Litner said this isn't a response to the recent of ESPNChicago.com. The new site features a Chicago-specific "SportsCenter" every morning and ESPN.com columnists and blogs.
Mr. Litner said the CSN site is "something that's always been in our plans."
Should make for an interesting competition.
