I'll use the Seattle Mariners as the example in my question.
Dave Neihaus and Rick Rizz (among others) do the radio broadcast and Fox Sports (FSN) broadcast for the games. For non-FSN games, they also do the primary play by play. Does the team pay them and bill the cost to the respective media outlet? What about the associated technical staffs and periphial reporters?
FSN has Brad Adam and other feild reporters, team or FSN? Local non-FSN broadcasts? And how about cameramen? Same cameras for both FSN and non-FSN local broadcasts. Does the team assume all costs and then bill the media outlet?
