We are back with another edition of the Sports Media Weekly Podcast. Ken Fang of Fang’s Bites and I begin the show by talking about the controversy over the political remarks made by Monday Night Football crooner Hank Williams, Jr. and ESPN’s response to it.
We also touch upon the strong ratings for the League Division Series on TBS and the hiring of Terry Francona by Fox to fill in for Tim McCarver for the first two games of the American League Championship Series.
Ken and I also discuss the expectations for NBC and Versus as the NHL season gets underway…particularly if the NBA season is cut short due to the lockout.
Our guest this week is Jen Royle, Ravens beat reporter for 105.7 FM The Fan in Baltimore. Jen tells us about her life growing up in Boston, working in New York, and her struggles in Baltimore.
