After a week off, Ken Fang of Fang’s Bites rejoins me for this week’s podcast.
We begin the show by looking at the World Series and the potential of it being one of the lowest rated Fall Classics ever. We keep with the baseball talk to discuss the coverage in New England of the aftermath of the collapse by the Boston Red Sox.
Ken and I also talk about the relatively flat NFL ratings as well as the contract extension for Jon Gruden to stay with ESPN and Monday Night Football.
We also handicap who, among ESPN, NBC, and Fox, will likely be awarded the rights to the 2018 and 2022 World Cup when FIFA announces the winner later this week.
Our guest this week is Ian Eagle of CBS Sports, Tennis Channel, Yes Network, and Westwood One. Ian talks about how his schedule has changed since he’s had to take time off from being the voice of the New Jersey Nets due to the NBA lockout. Ian also talks about the current NFL season to date, his ability to remain a flexible personality, and his summer sportscasters camp.
