We have another jam-packed Sports Media Weekly program.
Ken Fang of Fang’s Bites and I begin the show looking back at the incident involving ESPN’s Rob Parker and his comments about the Redskins QB Robert Griffin III. Parker issued an apology on Twitter today.
We also look at the news from Fox Sports Radio that it has hired Jay Mohr to serve as its midday host in the slot recently occupied by Jim Rome.
Ken and I look at what has proven to be a successful season for the NFL Network in its first year of televising 13 games on Thursday Night.
We end our news segment by promoting the end-of-the-year sports media column released today by Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch.
Our first guest this week is Clark Kellogg, lead college basketball analyst for CBS Sports. We talk with Clark about his years at CBS (he began nearly 20 years ago) and his previous work with ESPN. Clark also talks about his role in CBS’ upcoming series of programs looking back at the 75th Anniversary of March Madness. The network’s first set of programs in the series is set for December 29th.
Our second guest is Damon Amendolara, overnight sports radio host for the soon-to-be-launched CBS Sports Radio Network. Damon fills us in on how he views his role for the new show, as well how his work in Kansas City, Miami, and, recently, in Boston has helped shape his style as he takes his work to a national stage.
