It’s a three man show on this week’s edition of the Sports Media Weekly Podcast.
Ken Fang of Fang’s Bites and I are joined for this show by Chad Finn, Sports Media Columnist for the Boston Globe. Over the course of the show we discuss the release of Peyton Manning by the Colts and the anticipated media frenzy in speculating where he will be playing football next season. We all agree it is likely ESPN will be following the story in a way similar to when it covered Brett Favre’s multiple returns to the league.
We then spend some time talking college basketball on the eve of the NCAA Tournament. We look at ESPN’s handling of Championship Week and the plans by CBS and Turner Sports to cover March Madness.
We then talk of the Boston sports media scene with Chad, specifically news made today by local sports talker WEEI. We also touch upon the upcoming retirement of the Globe’s Bob Ryan and why Boston sports media beat is a fascinating one to cover.
