Welcome to the latest edition of our Sports Media Weekly Podcast. This week I am joined by Ken Fang from Fang’s Bites and by Pete Dougherty, columnist for the Albany Times Union. One of Pete’s beats is sports media. He also houses a sports media blog at the paper’s website.
This week we lead with the situation involving ESPN’s Steve Phillips. We also again touch upon the ratings numbers for the NFL and the MLB Playoffs and we also discuss the early success of ESPN’s “30 for 30” documentary film series.
