Some Breaking News in Boston

I have an interesting piece of news regarding the Boston Sports Radio War between incumbent WEEI and newcomer WBZ-FM/The Sports Hub. Check it out at the Fang’s Bites at Boston Sports Media Watch page.

Some Press Releases For You on A Saturday

Here are some press releases that hit the Fang’s Bites inbox either yesterday or early Friday evening. Because I did the Megalinks relatively early, I just didn’t feel like blogging last night. Then I got bogged down today doing family stuff so while I have a respite, let me post these releases and then I […]

The NFL Draft is Officially a Primetime Affair

So here’s the official word from the National Football League that next year’s Draft will span three days with the first round happening on a Thursday night and ending on a […]

There are certain writers I try to ignore at Fang’s Bites for the simple reasons they write to draw attention to themselves and more often than not, they don’t write about the sports media. But even when these writers do, they come off badly. Case in point, Jason Whitlock of the Kansas City Star and […]

Crazy Thursday Linkage

Well, where do I begin? There’s the Erin Andrews story which continues to pick up momentum. And we have ESPN finally acknowledging the Ben Roethlisberger civil lawsuit story two days after other media outlets have been reporting it.

Two Baseball Press Releases

I have two baseball-related press releases for you. One is the very first from Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia, a channel I cannot watch on DirecTV, but that’s neither here nor there. This touts the record ratings the network received for Tuesday night’s extra-inning win over the Chicago Cubs. Tuesday Night’s Phillies Win Delivers Highest Phillies Rating […]
