After a week off Ken Fang of Fang’s Bites and I are back with another edition of the Sports Media Weekly Podcast.
This week Ken and I discuss a possible plan by the NFL to compromise with the Players’ Association on the 18-game schedule by instead implementing a Thursday Night game every week of the season beginning in 2012. We discuss which network might be interested in the telecasting of 8 games each season. The NFL Network already telecasts 8 Thursday night games each season.
We look at respectable ratings for Game 7 of the NHL Stanley Cup Finals, especially in Boston.
We also touch upon the news that Al Michaels and Bob Costas will be sharing the duties calling next Friday’s Mets/Giants telecast on the MLB Network.
We talk about the coverage of the Women’s World Cup and Wimbledon and Ken provides an overview of the recently completed Boston Sports Blogapalooza event last weekend in Boston.
