Sports Media Weekly No. 152- Richard Deitsch, Sports Illustrated & Jason Kint, CBS Sports Interactive

There is a lot on our plate in this week’s edition of Sports Media Weekly.

Ken Fang of Fang’s Bites and I are joined for our news segment by Richard Deitsch, sports media columnist for Sports Illustrated.

We start off the show analyzing the NBA Finals and what we can expect from the coverage by ESPN/ABC.

We then move on to the news this week that Keith Olbermann will return to baseball as the studio host for TBS’ coverage of Major League Baseball’s post season.

Next up are the implications of the NFL’s deal with Verizon to stream more regular season games on the wireless carrier’s network beginning in 2014.

We finish the segment by looking at how Fox Sports is sharing its Euro 2016 and 2018 European World Cup qualifiers with ESPN and the story by Ken that ESPN’s Mike Hill will no longer be working in Bristol.

Our second guest this week is Jason Kint, Senior Vice President and General Manager of CBS Sports Interactive, the digital arm of CBS Sports.  Ken spends time with Jason talking about the varied offerings by CBS online as well as the future of digital sports programming.
