Sports Media Weekly Podcast Special- Norby Williamson, ESPN

We’ve got a special edition of the podcast today.  We will be back with our regularly scheduled podcast later this week.

Ken Fang of Fang’s Bites joins me to discuss his visit last Thursday to ESPN.  Ken was invited by the network to be part of a meeting with producers to discuss how ESPN covers sports and how it can be done better.

Ken was joined by Rachel Cohen of the Associated Press and Pete Dougherty of the Albany Times Union in the one hour meeting, which was off the record.

In exchange for their input, the trio were allowed to speak, on the record, with ESPN Executive Vice President of Production Norby Williamson.  The Q&A session is included in this podcast.

Within the discussion Williamson talks about what drives coverage at ESPN.  He also touches upon “The Decision”, and the network’s relationship with ABC and its affiliates.
