Congratulations to SNY's Brad Como, who recently was promoted to Vice President of News Programming.

Como seems like a capable and nice enough fellow, even if he did help create "Around the Horn" when he was at ESPN.

Here is a quote that SNY sent from senior VP Curt Gowdy, Jr., about Como:

“Our studio news and entertainment programming has continued to grow and set new standards under Brad’s leadership and creative vision. He was instrumental in overhauling our entertainment block with the creation of 'The Wheelhouse' and 'Loud Mouths' and has successfully managed and directed an outstanding group of men and women in our news room who continue to create and produce exceptional New York Mets, Jets, Big East and 'SportsNite' programming.”

SNY also recently made its indefatigable publicist, Andrew Fegyveresi, Vice President of Communications.
