Welcome to a new year of Sports Media Weekly programs.
Ken Fang of Fang’s Bites and I begin the show discussing a report by Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated that Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis will be joining ESPN as an NFL analyst once he retires at the end Baltimore’s playoff run.
We spend some time looking at ratings numbers as the networks begin to look back at their successes of 2012..
We then recount the horrific accident which fell upon ESPN anchor Hannah Storm over the holiday break. She returned to work New Year’s Day hosting the Rose Bowl Parade on ABC.
We finish our segment looking at the official national launch yesterday of the CBS Sports Radio Network
Staying with sports radio our guest this week is Anita Marks, who will be starting a new nationally syndicated weekend sports radio show on the NBC Sports Radio Network. Anita talks about what listeners can expect from her Saturday and Sunday broadcasts beginning at noon ET. She also fills us in on her experience hosting sports radio in Baltimore; her role with the New York Giants; and her love for fantasy football.
