SandersSportsTime Ohio yesterday announced John Sanders will not return to the Indians TV booth for the 2007 season. Sanders, who joined the Indians in 1991, just completed his 16th season calling Indians baseball action on the TV network side.

"We want to first thank John for his dedication and longtime service of covering Indians baseball," said SportsTime Ohio President JIM LIBERATORE. "It is our goal to establish a two-person broadcast team, and today's announcement is the first step in that process. At the end of the day, the announce team serves as story tellers and in order to tell the most complete story, the announcers need to know the complete story. Consistently working with the team, proximity to the team and regular communication with the team is the best and in fact the only way to present the total story, which is what Indians fans expect and deserve. We believe a two-person booth offers a more consistent, defined and viewer-friendly approach for the 138 telecasts on STO."

"From an overall SportTime Ohio perspective, we want a full time presence in the community for our increasing number of local programming hours and also a recognizable STO face for participation with our charitable and civic contributions to the region".
