Today’s podcast was a whole technical clusteryouknowwhat thanks to my Skype issues and bad AT&T connection. But Keith Thibault of Sports Media Journal and I managed to plow through.
During the news of the week segment, Keith and I talk about ESPN Ombudsman Don Ohlmeyer’s assessment of LeBron James’ decision that was aired for 73 minutes on the Mothership. We also talk about the misquote of the Miami Heat’s Dwayne Wade that could have been very costly to him down the line. And we also explore the deal that led to the sale of The Sporting Blog from the Sporting News to SB Nation.
Then we talk with the always lovely Tina Cervasio of MSG Network.
This is where my crappy phone comes into play and I cut out twice during this segment. Anyway, we talk with Tina about her career and how she landed at MSG. Before she went to MSG, Tina was known throughout Red Sox Nation as the sideline reporter for NESN and she talks about the passionate fanbase in New England and one of her more interesting interactions with a young fan. And Tina describes July 8, the day of “The Decision,” and how she had to cover one of the more hectic days in sports.
Another good podcast, not me withstanding. Of course, you can subscribe to the Sports Media Weekly podcast by going to iTunes and searching “Sports Media Journal”. Or you can go
