Sports Media Weekly Podcast #26- Keith McSpurren, CoverItLive

Sports Media WeeklyToday marks the half-year anniversary of the Sports Media Weekly Podcast with our 26th edition.

Ken Fang at Fang’s Bites and I look at the announcer line-up for CBS’ coverage of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, changes afoot at ESPN Radio, and the media feud between ESPN.com’s Bill Simmons and former WWL’er and current NBC/MSNBC personality Keith Olbermann.

Our guest this week is Keith McSpurren, President of CoverItLive. CoverItLive is arguably the leader in providing websites with live blogging capability.  Keith talks about how he came up with the product and how media companies as small as SMJ and as large as ESPN use it.

Here is a piece I wrote on CoverItLive two and a half years ago.
