We were away from the show last week so we thought we’d bring you two guests for this week’s Sports Media Weekly.
Ken Fang of Fang’s Bites and I devote the entire show to the coverage at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
Our first guest is Richard Sandomir, Sports TV and Business reporter for the New York Times. We spend the first part of the program looking at NBC’s coverage of the Games–which, despite many complaints, continues to be a ratings winner.
Our second guest joins us from London. Bruce Beck is the lead sports anchor at WNBC-TV NBC 4 in New York. Despite the late hour Bruce was still excited about attending his fifth Olympics, sharing his expereinces covering every angle of the 2012 Games.
