A few items as we start the new week:
Boston Herald Internet radio starts next Monday, August 5th. The 3:00pm sports offering will be called “Sports Town with Jon Meterparel and Jen Royle.”
This is part of a multimedia effort from the Herald, and a tweet from Royle reflects that:
In addition to @HeraldRadio, I'll be writing (online and in paper) and doing lots of sports video segments. Multimedia galore!

Gammons plans website launch this week – Sports Business Journal reports that the veteran baseball scribe will have his own web site launch this Wednesday. It will be part of the Rafe Anderson-led Tru Media Networks.
Much of the content will be columns and interviews from Gammons, but the site is also looking to hire additional writers for content. While at least one sponsor is onboard, it appears crowdfunding is also being used to support GammonsDaily.com, and contributors will receive special perks.
98.5 The Sports Hub afternoon flash guy Marc Bertrand tweeted today that he will be a part of the Patriots.com pre and post game coverage this season, along with Paul Perillo and Andy Hart.
This is not the 98.5 radio pre and post game show, those are still hosted by Gary Tanguay and Andy Gresh, but a part of the Patriots website.
