Sports Media Weekly iTunes Feed Back Up and Running

It has been a few weeks since I was alerted to the fact that our iTunes feed for the Sports Media Weekly program was not working properly.

I have finally rectified the problem.  For those of you on iTunes who would like to subscribe to the program, you can now do so and download the show.  For those who have had problems in the past, you will need to unsubscribe from the feed, then re-subscribe and you should be all set.

Please let me know if you still experience a porblem.  Thanks for your patience and support.

Time for a Timeout

The staff here at Sports Media Journal (me) needs to recharge its batteries from time to time.  Now is one of those times.

I will be away from the site for a little over a week.  We will we will be back, all tanned and rested (well, hopefully rested), on April 23rd.

Thanks for your continued support of SMJ!

Sports Media Weekly Podcast on Hiatus

I know Ken Fang of Fang’s Bites and I have been promoting our big 100th episode, but it will have to wait.

We are lining up a big guest for #100, but this person cannot join us for another two weeks.  I will be away on vacation beginning tomorrow, so, if all goes well, the podcast will resume the week of April 23rd.

On another note…I understand the iTunes feed for the show is not allowing for downloads.  I am working on the problem and hope to have it working ASAP.  In the meantime, you can check out all our past podcasts here.

Thanks four your support!
