Sports Media Weekly We are back with another edition of the Sports Media Weekly Podcast.

Ken Fang at Fang’s Bites joins me as we discuss the impressive ratings for NBC’s coverage of the Kentucky Derby, the passing of Tigers broadcast legend Ernie Harwell, Ken’s experience at the Boston Blogapalooza, and the growing ratings for the NHL and NBA Playoffs.

Speaking of the NHL Playoffs, our guest this week is Leon Schweir, Senior Vice President of Production and Executive Producer at Versus. ¬†We talk with Leon about how the network has seen an increase in viewers for their NHL product, his background in sports television, his opinion of play-by-play voice Mike Emrick, and plans for some of Versus’ other sports properties for 2010.
