Will there be more Miller time on Giants’ broadcasts next year?

ESPN has replaced Jon Miller and Joe Morgan as their Sunday Night Baseball announcers. Miller, a San Francisco native, also announces for the Giants, of course, and is a favorite among fans. Henry Schulman in the Chronicle writes:

If Miller gives up his ESPN gig completely, he could spend more time in his principal job as the radio voice of the Giants. Miller ordinarily used the entire weekend for travel in connection with the “Sunday Night Baseball” broadcasts.

As the season drew to a close, someone close to Miller told The Chronicle that after years of juggling both roles, the 59-year-old broadcaster finally was growing weary of the travel. On the other hand, the person said, the ESPN gig is lucrative and hard to give up.

ESPN has offered Miller a gig broacasting the Sunday games on ESPN radio, but he hasn’t decided on whether he’ll accept yet.

Here’s NPR’s recent interview with Miller, post World Series.

Also, I’m guessing you can’t possibly want to watch the World Series parade, at which Miller introduced the Giants, one more time? Oh wait, you do?
