In yet another sign that the woeful Comcast SportsNet is sinking as quickly as its ratings, longtime reporters Dei Lynam and Tim Panaccio were fired yesterday.
“NBA free agency starts this week and I am now on the market,” Lynam wrote on Twitter.
“The business of reporting is rapidly changing,” Panaccio said.
Over the past year, CSN has said goodbye to some of their most recognizable faces: Neil Hartman, Ron Burke, Leslie Gudel, and now Lynam and Panaccio.
Lynam, who was recently featured on Sixers pre and post-game shows (often with her father and former Sixers and St. Joe’s coach Jim Lynam), had been with Comcast when the station was formed in 1997. Panaccio joined in 2009 after covering the Flyers for decades for the Philadelphia Inquirer.
