Sports Illustrated media reporter Richard Deitsch joins the podcast this week! We discussed:
- The lamentable hiatus of Sports TV Ratings.
- The scope and ripple effect of impending layoffs at ESPN, and why he won’t be the first to break news on talents who are getting let go.
- ESPN’s Monday Night Football slate — why does the NFL give them worse games than it gives NBC?
- The presumably upcoming show with Bomani Jones and Pablo Torre
- WWE talk, including the departure of Mauro Ranallo, whether Enzo and Cass are getting marginalized, and The Miz’s ascension
- Will Katie Nolan remain at Fox? Will Bill Simmons appear on ESPN’s NBA Countdown next season? Why isn’t he making videos for The Ringer?
- Our belief that the Barstool model is the future of making money off of original digital video content.
Hope you enjoy!
