Another week and it means another podcast with my friend and podcast partner, Southern New England media mogul Keith Thibault of Sports Media Journal.
As usual, Keith and I discuss the news of the week. We began with the news about ESPN buying the rights to the new college football playoff for 12 years beginning in January 2015.
In a related note, Keith and traded thoughts on Notre Dame’s impact on ESPN’s ratings for the BCS National Championship Game.
Continuing our football theme, we transitioned to the Thanksgiving NFL games and their high viewership.
We both looked at the new CBS Sports Radio morning show to be hosted by Brandon Tierney, Dana Jacobsen and Tiki Barber.
And we completed this segment with a discussion on the increase of fresh morning programming in sports television.
Our guest this week is Jen Royle who’s launching a new Boston-based website, Sports Reel Boston.
Jen tells us what led her to start the site. She lets us know some of the ex-Major League Baseball players and executives who will be contributing to the site. Jen gave us some background on her strategy for the website and the sponsors.
Some great stuff and Jen gives good insight on launching a site. You can download the podcast by searching for “Sports Media Journal” or you can go to download and listen right away by
