The State of ESPN with President John Skipper

ESPN held its media today at the Bristol campus.  I was fortunate enough to attend and will be posting interviews over the next day or so.

One of the highlights of the day was a lunch-time Q&A session by ESPN President John Skipper.  Skipper took questions from the assembled media for over an hour and touched upon a number of topics…from the competition from Fox Sports 1, to the re-hiring of Keith Olbermann and Jason Whitlock, to the escalation of rights fees, and to the likelihood of live sports content migrating exclusively online.

Instead of picking out the highlights of Skipper’s comments I thought it best to post his entire Q&A session as a podcast.   The podcast is a long listen at over an hour, but gives us a good look at the state of ESPN.
