After a week off we are back with the Sports Media Weekly Podcast.
Ken Fang of Fang’s Bites and I begin our discussion looking at the contract renewal between the NHL and the NBC Sports Group. The new agreement will keep pro hockey on the NBC properties through the 2020-2021 season.
We also look at the 2011 NFL schedule which was announced last week, with a skeptical eye as to whether there will be a season or not.
We also look at the prospects of which networks are in the running for a potential PAC 12 Network, and the ratings over the first 10 days of the NBA Playoffs.
Our Guest this week is Albert “Scooter” Vertino, vice president of content for NBA Digital at Turner Sports. Vertino discusses his days as a producer of NBA basketball at Turner Sports as well as how he now organizes content for the varied online properties under his supervision.
