TSN is preparing Jalen Rose for a post-basketball career in
broadcasting. The Raptors swingman will be a regular contributor to
TSN’s SportsCentre this season, beginning tonight. He will appear
regularly on the segments ‘Three Burning Questions’ and ‘Fact or
Fiction.’ TSN also is exploring ideas like putting a microphone on Rose
after a game and having a devoted camera on him on an off-day. It’s not
Rose’s first job in the broadcasting world. He has done some television
work in the United States.
