NYBD Is Back!

By Mike Silva ~ March 7th, 2014. Filed under: Mike Silva.

After a two year hiatus I would like to announce the return of NYBD.

First, before I get into details, let me be clear about the purpose and intention of this site.


Now that we have that on the table, let me explain my return.

Over the last two years I left writing/blogging to focus more on radio ventures and some personal matters. I believed it was time to expand outside of just talking baseball, and add other sports, as well as media, to my repertoire. I felt I could no longer give to the site what was necessary to move it forward. I was fortunate enough to land a weekend job hosting on Champions Radio, the ESPN affiliate on Long Island. Unfortunately, Champions Radio has switched formats and its future with sports talk is uncertain. This led to my return to new media and freelance work. Why not bring back a site that had a great niche, and provided many fans with a place to debate, vent and discuss the latest New York baseball topics.

Additionally, there was some confusion about whether I was affiliated with a publication. Let me be clear: I use this site for non-profit purposes. It’s an outlet to promote my radio work and interact with my New York baseball-loving listeners. I don’t make a dime off it, nor have any intention of putting out any traditional magazine or publication. This is my own personal digest on New York baseball; nothing more, nothing less.

The new NYBD will be focused on opinion pieces. I hope to have some of my old contributors check in here once in a while, as well.

We will have fun here, but quality over quantity is the focus of this site.

I will continue to write about all sports and media at my sister site: Sports Media Watchdog. I also co-host a weekly show on Blog Talk Radio called The Weekend Watchdogs. Additionally, I am working on traditional media projects that I hope to be able to announce in the near future.

Lets talk some baseball and have fun. I believe the New York media landscape has missed the passion this site brought on a daily basis from 2008 to 2012.

I am looking forward to interacting with all of you!
