Sports Media Weekly No. 172- Chad Finn, The Boston Globe & Ian Eagle, CBS Sports

The weather is beginning to turn cooler nationwide but we try to turn up the heat here on Sports Media Weekly (SMW)

Joining Ken Fang of Fang’s Bites and me for the news segment this week is Boston Globe sports media columnist Chad Finn.

We begin the show with what has been the most-talked about story over the last week, the developing saga of Dolphins’ offensive lineman Richie Incognito and his alleged bullying of teammate Jonathan Martin.  We look back at how the NFL’s network partners covered the story and the exclusive interview with Incognito by Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer.

We bring it back to Boston and get Chad’s take on how the Boston sports media handled covering the Red Sox this season under John Farrell compared to 2012 with Bobby Valentine.

We wrap the segment looking at the continued success for ESPN during its college basketball marathon, which aired over the last two days.  It’s an opportunity for ESPN to capitalize on promoting college basketball during a slow period between the end of baseball season and the end of the college and pro football seasons.

Our second guest this week is SMW fave Ian Eagle of CBS Sports, among other media entities.  Ken talks with Ian about his frenetic announcing schedule, his relationship with NBA broadcast partner Mike Fratello, his broadcasting idols, and his knowledge of 1980’s sitcoms.

Sports Media Weekly No. 171- Richard Sandomir, New York Times & Trenni Kusnierek, CSNNE

We have a pair of happy Boston Red Sox fans hosting this week’s Sports Media Weekly program.

Ken Fang of Fang’s Bites and I are joined for our news segment this week by Richard Sandomir of the New York Times.

We lead-off the show with a final look back at the World Series and Fox’ claim of higher ratings when, in fact, the viewership numbers are actually still on the decline.

Richard chimes in with a local New York sports media item in the announcement that the New York Mets next year will be calling WOR-AM it’s radio flagship home after a long stint on WFAN.

We return to Richard’s article with James Andrew Miller from a week or so ago on the 10th Anniversary of the NFL Network and the league’s attempt to sell a portion of the network’s stake to ESPN.  Richard adds some context and other insights to the piece.

We wrap the news segment by looking at how NBC is looking forward to a profitable Winter Olympic Games this February from Sochi after losing money at the Vancouver Games in 2010.

The second half of the show features Ken speaking with Trenni Kusnierek.  You may remember Trenni from her years at the MLB Network.  Ken talks with her about her expereinces there and her new role at Comcast SportsNet New England.

Sports Media Weekly No. 170- Ed Sherman, The Sherman Report & Doug Wilson, Sports Producer

We have World Series fever on this week’s edition of Sports Media Weekly.

Ken Fang of Fang’s Bites and I are joined for our news segment this week by Ed Sherman of The Sherman Report.  We taped our segment prior to the Red Sox’ World Series-clinching win last night in Game Six.

We spend a good portion of our segment looking at Fox’ coverage of the World Series.  Fox has been promoting improved ratings over last year.  But the ratings had no where to go than up after last year’s Fall Classic registered the lowest ratings in history.

We delve into the length of games and how those on the east coast have a difficult time staying up to watch games that end near midnight.

We also look back at how Fox’ practice of focusing on crowd shots between pitches cost them during Game Four when they missed the pick-off play at first in the bottom of the ninth inning which ended the ball game.

We wrap up the news segment looking at the tenth anniversary of the NFL Network and the report from the New York Times on how the NFL was looking to sell a stake in the network to ESPN.

Our second guest this week is long time ABC Sports producer Doug Wilson who has a new book out entitled The World was Our Stage: Spanning the Globe with ABC Sports. Ken talks with Doug about his many decades with ABC, including his recollection of his relationships with the likes of Jim McKay and Roone Arledge as well as his time working ten Olympic Games for the network.

Fox Unveils Announcers for Big East Basketball

With Fox Sports’ foray into covering Big East college basketball beginning this season, the network today announced its slate of game announcers and analysts for the upcoming season. Big East action will be telecast on Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2.

As announced earlier this year Gus Johnson and Bill Raftery will make up the lead broadcast team.  Others calling play-by-play for Fox will be Justin Kutcher, Dick Stockton, Thom Brennaman, Brian Anderson, Eric Collins and Kevin Kugler.  Game analysts will include Jim Jackson, Stephen Bardo, Ron Thompson, Donny Marshall, Jim Spanarkel, Bob Wenzel, Gary Williams and Kevin O’Neill.

“We are very excited about this group of announcers,” said Fox Sports Executive Producer John Entz. “They come from a wide range of backgrounds and have an array of unique and interesting stories to tell. They are incredibly knowledgeable about the game, and we look forward to experiencing BIG EAST basketball with them.”

Big East action on Fox Sports 1 begins November 8th at 6:00p.m. ET as Providence hosts Boston College.  Along with 100 regular season Big East games Fox Sports also has exclusive coverage of the Big East Men’s Basketball Championship from Madison Square Garden on New York next March.

 

Sports Media Weekly No. 169- Tom Hoffarth, LA Daily News

With Ken Fang of Fang’s Bites and I being avid Red Sox fans, we hope you can understand why we have an abbreviated version of Sports Media Weekly this week on the doorstep of game one of the World Series.

Our guest this week is Tom Hoffarth, sports media columnist for the Los Angeles Daily News.

We begin the show discussing this year’s Fall Classic, the last for Fox Sports analyst Tim McCarver.  The three of us acknowledge that McCarver may not be as sharp an analyst as he once was, but I, for one, applaud his long broadcasting career.

We next tap into Tom’s expertise in asking whether the Dodgers have taken some of the luster off the Lakers shine as being the most-favored professional team in southern California.

We resume our talk from a few weeks ago about the naming controversy surrounding the Washington Redskins by examining how much damage ESPN College Football Gameday analyst Lee Corso may have caused by appearing in war paint and native American dress in picking Florida State to beat Clemson last Saturday.

We conclude the show looking at the final pieces of ESPN’s NBA Countdown being put in place with the announcement that Sage Steele will serve as host of the Friday and Sunday editions of the show.

Sports Media Weekly No. 168- Paulsen, Sports Media Watch

Ken Fang of Fang’s Bites and I have an abbreviated version of Sports Media Weekly this week.

Ken an I are joined this week by Paulsen of Sports Media Watch.

We begin the show by tapping into Paulsen’s vast knowledge of ratings numbers as we dissect the reported success to date of Fox and TBS during their coverage of Major League Baseball’s playoffs.

We do the same with the NFL, which, although still king of the hill in ratings, is seeing decreases in viewership on some networks thus far over 2012.  In our discussion we also bring up the report in the Wall Street Journal that the NFL may be looking at adding an additional Thursday Night game to the schedule.

We move on to the changes ESPN has been making to the NBA Countdown crew, led by the departure last week of Magic Johnson.

We wrap the show by looking at how ESPN and Turner have been trying to get out of telecasting NASCAR in 2014, the last year of its contract before NBC and Fox take over the rights exclusively in 2015.

Sports Media Weekly No. 167- Steve Lepore, Awful Announcing & Adam Schein, CBS Sports

The MLB Playoffs are in full gear and so is another edition of Sports Media Weekly.

Joining Ken Fang of Fang’s Bites and me to discuss the news of the week is Steve Lepore, newly-hired writer for Awful Announcing.

We begin the program looking at the successes thus far of TBS on its coverage of Major League Baseball’s postseason.  The numbers for the network are higher than 2012, even without an appearance by the New York Yankees.

Next we look at the emergence of the NBC Sports Network (NBCSN) as the leader when it comes to televising the NHL.  Since the time NBCSN was known as OLN and Versus the network has found its niche in being the United States home for hockey.

We wrap up the segment by looking at the impact of how Peyton Manning’s hot start has been reflected in the early-season NFL ratings.

Ken takes over the second half of the show speaking with CBS Sports host Adam Schein. Ken talks with Adam about his work on That Other Postgame Show, NFL Monday QB, and SiriusXM Radio.
