Sports Media Weekly No. 153- Paulsen, Sports Media Watch

We have an abbreviated edition of Sports Media Weekly this week.

Ken Fang of Fang’s Bites and I are joined this week by Paulsen of Sports Media Watch.

We start the show looking at the average ratings for ABC and ESPN through the first three games of the NBA Finals.  We then look at the expectations of the NHL and NBC as the NHL Finals between the Bruins and Blackhawks gets underway tonight.

The next round of job cuts at ESPN began today.  Among those let go was Howie Schwab, long time ESPN researcher and former participant in the Stump the Schwab program which ran from 2004 through 2006.  We react to the move, which appears to be having an impact on those still in Bristol.

We move on to the announcement that ESPN will be shuttering its ESPN3D channel by the end of the year.

We wrap the show looking at how the U.S. Open golf tournament will fare for ESPN and NBC.
