After a week off, the Sports Media Weekly podcast returns in a big way. We have coverage of the Fox Sports 1 announcement with three interviews from the network unveiling held earlier this week in New York.
Keith Thibault of Sports Media Journal and I did our News of the Week segment and Ed Sherman from The Sherman Report was our Third Man In. The Fox Sports 1 announcement in New York was the main topic as we discussed the implications of having the new network on the sports television scene.
We also talked about having the Catholic 7/New Big East about to be signed with Fox Sports 1.
And we moved to the news about ESPN and Keith Olbermann talking about him possibly returning to the Alleged Worldwide Leader.
The taped segments from New York were next. First up was a discussion with former Fox Sports El Jefe del Mundo and current News Corp. Senior Executive Vice President David Hill about the growth of Fox Sports over the last 20 years.
Then was a brief interview with Regis Philbin who will host “Rush Hour” on Fox Sports 1.
And the last interview was with NFL on Fox rules analyst Mike Pereira about how he joined Fox Sports and what his role would be on Fox Sports 1.
