Bob Bowman, Who Hit Grand Slam With MLBAM Growth, Is Going Home

Special to NYSportsJournalism.com

November 8, 2017: Bob Bowman, president-business and media for MLB and the first and only CEO for Major League Baseball Advanced Media, has told commissioner Rob Manfred that “he would not seek to renew his current contract upon its expiration next month.”

Bowman joined MLB in 2000, overseeing since then the growth of MLBAM, led by the launch of MLB TV (in 2002) and the highly successful At Bat sports app.

In December 2014, Bowman became president-business and media for MLB as Manfred was taking over for Bud Selig as MLB commission.

MLBAM also runs and/or owns the official Web sites for MLB, Minor League Baseball, YES Network (New York Yankees) and SportsNet New York (New York Mets); and has provided the backend infrastructure for WWE Network, WatchESPN, ESPN3, HBO Now and PGA Tour Live.

MLB split BAM's non-baseball business into BAMTech, then in August 2016 sold 33%  to The Walt Disney Co. for $1 billion.

This past August Disney acquired an additional 42% to Disney for $1.58 billion to become a majority owner.

"With the recent completion of the sale of a majority stake in BAMTech to The Walt Disney Co., and recognizing the enormous talent pool that exists at MLB and MLB.com, it is an ideal time for new leadership,” Bowman said in a statement.

“Of all that we have accomplished, I am most proud of the people I have worked with, many of whom have been with me each step of the way over the past 17 years.”

According to Manfred, “Bob's vision made our game even more accessible and enjoyable to millions of fans. He and I will work closely to ensure a smooth transition in the weeks ahead, and our talented staff at MLB, MLB Advanced Media and MLB Network will continue to build on his many accomplishments.”
