In a very busy podcast, Keith Thibault of Sports Media Journal and I brush on two major topics in the NFL, the new TV contracts and Tim Tebow.
In our news segment, Keith and I talk mostly about the new NFL contracts with CBS, NBC and Fox. We summarize what each network will receive over the span of the 9 year deals and how much they’re going to be paying (a lot).
And then Keith and I briefly discuss the move by ABC/ESPN to assign NBA voices Mike Breen and Jeff Van Gundy to two different games in two time zones on Christmas Day.
Our guest this week is the lovely Robin Carlin, writer for Mile High Sports magazine in Denver. With Robin, we talked about how big a story the rise of Tim Tebow has become in Denver as he continues to win games as the starting quarterback of the Broncos. We also broach how the media coverage has become saturated with Tebow stories and how the national media has made Tebow coverage a priority.
It’s a very good podcast and quite an enjoyable listen. Download it on iTunes by searching for “Sports Media Journal” or you can bypass all that by listening
