Thanks for checking into the latest edition of the Sports Media Weekly Podcast.
During our news segment Ken Fang of Fang’s Bites and I once again talk about how NBC is handing its coverage of the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. On the table is how the ratings and the programming choices by NBC may impact the next round of Olympics bidding for the 2014 and 2016 Games.
Ken and I also touch upon the two week suspension by ESPN of Tony Kornheiser from his PTI gig following the remarks he made last week about Hannah Storm’s wardrobe. Both Ken and I feel ESPN may have overreacted a bit.
Our guest this week is sportscaster Dave Sims. Dave is famous for his radio and television play-by-play of college basketball as well as his work as the voice of Sunday Night Football on Westwood One. Dave is also handles television ply-by-play for the Seattle Mariners.
