< 1 day ago
Episode 138 of the Sports Illustrated Media podcast features a return of the sports media roundtable. The guests are Sports Business Daily media writer John Ourand and Andrew Bucholtz, a staff writer and editor Awful Announcing. In this podcast we discuss Ourand’s piece on angst at ESPN and the growing belief among ESPN management that some of the problems are not all self-inflicted and that some believe that 21st Century Fox is orchestrating attacks against ESPN to bolster the fortunes of rival sports channel FS1; how ESPN handled the Jemele Hill situation; Fox Sports personalities going on Fox News programs to discuss ESPN; whether their are parallels between Hill, Curt Schilling and other ESPN-ers who have been disciplined; how Ourand contacted Fox for his story; whether ESPN’s as a left-leaning organization is real, a narrative posited by competition, or a combination of both; what responsibility sports TV executives have for talent talking politics on linear television; whether Hill should have been suspended or fired; Bucholtz’s column on ESPN public editor Jim Brady and the reaction to his column on Hill and Twitter chat on the column; whether the public editor position at ESPN should continue, and much more.
