After letting go of studio host Tony Luftman and not televising a single pre-season game, Blazers Broadcasting has tightened its belt again, grounding sideline reporter Rebecca Haarlow for all road trips during the 2009-2010 regular season.
Haarlow was absent from the Blazers' recent five game trip; many assumed it was because she was continuing her college football broadcasting work with FSN. This morning, the organization confirmed to Blazersedge.com that Blazers Broadcasting has decided to cut back to a two-person on-air broadcasting team during road games while continuing to use the full three-person team for Blazers home games.
In Haarlow's absence, play-by-play man Mike Barrett has picked up post-game interview duties following road games. Mike Rice continues in his role as color commentator.
The team next hits the road tomorrow night for a visit to the Golden State Warriors.
