Matt Tracker Scrapple Since: 8.5.03 From: North Carolina Since last post: 20 hours Last activity: 1 hour # 1 Posted on 19.11.10 0949.20 | Instant Rating: 7.08 A memo from the editors (mediabistro.com) says he'll take a larger role at ESPN. He had been with the paper for almost 32 years. As a former newspaper guy, I recognize the departure is a blow to the paper, but he's clearly an engaging TV presence, and his NBA work on ABC is solid. This makes sense. Also, if he could work a regular ESPN.com column like Sports Guy, he could compete as that network's online basketball guy.

He and Tony have been doing local TV for about 15-20 years already with The Redskins report and whatever they call the Wizards show. I assumed he already took one of the many buyouts that the Post has offered over the years. -- 2006 Time magazine Person of the Year -- -- July 2009 Ordained Reverend --

Well, he was already an ESPN employee first and a WAPO employee second for a few years now. This just makes it official. Adios, Mayor McCheese. You will not be missed from the Post (anyway). Mark Coale Odessa Steps Magazine ISSUE FOUR - OCTOBER 2009
His website (harryharrison.com) is reporting that that he passed away yesterday from unknown causes. He was one of my favorite authors simply because, while he was broadly a Scifi writer, his body of work was so eclectic.
