Previously, the ND and PD were two different people, but Gene Conte recently announced plans to vacate the PD office after accepting a similar role across town at Galaxy's trio of ESPN Radio stations. Jeff Monaski had been serving as News Director, but by the looks of today's job posting, it appears Monaski could be transitioning to concentrate on his new role as co-host of SportsWatch.
