Sports Media Weekly Podcast #38- Neil Best, Newsday

Sports Media Weekly Time again for the latest Sports Media Weekly Podcast.

Today Ken Fang from Fang’s Bites and I are joined for the entire show by Neil Best, Sports Media Columnist for Newsday.

We start the discussion on the impressive ratings thus far for ESPN and it’s coverage of the World Cup, both on television and online.

We also discuss the impact the NBA and NHL Playoff ratings will have long term, how a projected NFL lockout will impact the television networks, and whether the agenda at the Associated Press Sports Editors Convention really fits into the future of newspapers.

We also discuss with Neil a couple of New York-centric sports media items…the Jerry Seinfeld/Lady Gaga rift as the behind-the-scenes alleged treatment of WFAN interns.
