We’re in the dog days of summer but there is still a lot of news to discuss on this week’s edition of the Sports Media Weekly Podcast.
Our good friend Ken Fang at Fang’s Bites and I talk about the expansion of ESPN’s SportsCenter to ESPNews effective August 30th. We also talk about the “re-imagining” announced this week for ESPN the Magazine.
Ken had a post this week asking his Twitter and Facebook followers their opinions of ESPN’s Chris Berman. Ken’s entry was a follow-up to Berman’s recognition this past weekend by the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
We finish our news segment talking about the ratings bonanza for NBC’s coverage of the Hall of Fame Game between the Cowboys and Bengals, as well as a look at the complete release of the 2010-2011 NBA schedule.
Our guest this week is Lisa Horne, college football writer for FoxSports.com. Lisa talks about her four year career at FosSports.com, how this off season has been extremely active in college football, and her picks for the upcoming season.
