Ken Fang of Fang’s Bites and I are back for another edition of Sports Media Weekly.
We begin the show by talking about the final ratings for CBS and Turner for the recently-completed NCAA Men’s College Basketball Tournament. We look back at what was the best and worst of the coverage by both networks.
We wrap-up the segment by looking at plans by TNT to cover tomorrow night’s Thunder/Warriors NBA telecast without a play-by-play announcer, only analysts Steve Kerr, Reggie Miller and Chris Webber.
Our second guest this week is Dan Levy, national lead writer for the Bleacher Report. Dan fills us in on how his role has evolved at the Bleacher Report and the impact Turner has had on the operation after it purchased the site.
Dan also used his appearance to announce a new project, the creation of a graphic novel entitled The Rise of the Umpire Robots. Dan will enlist a star-studded roster of sports writers to help with the project, which will be funded via Kickstarter very soon.
