Big things are afoot at Comcast SportsNet and NBC10. It was announced today to staffers at both stations that starting in January, CSN would provide complete sports reports for NBC10’s sportscasts.

What does that mean for on air personalities? I hear that sports reporter John Clark has been offered a position in the new world order. Vai Sikahema (who has been transitioning to anchor status as of late) will still cover the Olympics in Sochi for NBC10, but some of his coverage will also appear on CSN.

When I asked about whether jobs will be lost at either station, reps from both said that logisitics were still being figured out.

A similar situation happened in San Fransisco in 2011 when Comcast SportsNet Bay Area took over all sports coverage for the affiliate KNTV (now called NBC Bay Area). In that situation, no jobs were lost.
