We are a little early this week for the Sports Media Weekly Podcast, but with good reason.
Ken Fang at Fang’s Bites and I discuss the big sports media news story of the day, the awarding of the rights to the 2014, 2016, 2018, and 2020 Olympics to NBC.
We look at why we think NBC won the bid and what it means for coverage of the Olympic Games through to the next decade.
We also look at why ESPN and Fox were not successful in securing the Olympic bids.
Ken and I also spend time discussing the ratings for the NBA Finals and NHL Stanley Cup Finals.
No guests this week. We hope to have one for next week.
