I get the feeling that a lot of Yankees fans were similar to me. Not that we didn’t like Kim Jones, but it took a little while for her to grow on us and ultimately we were sad to see her leaving the YES Network this offseason.
The Yankees didn’t waste a lot of time finding another hot chick to replace her though as they have replaced her with Meredith Marakovits, according to Joel Sherman of the NY Post.
It seems like they are a prerequisite for a sports network these days (Where is the hot chick covering the Rangers games on MSG?). Aside from SNY she has also covered the Yankees for ESPNNewYork radio, has done work for WFAN, and she covered the Philadelphia 76ers. It’s going to be hard to fill Kim Jones’ shoes though.
Jones of course left the network over the winter. As far as I know she doesn’t have a full-time job yet to replace her YES Network gig, but she keeps busy. She does a lot of work for WFAN and the expectation is that she will hook up with the NFL Network.
