In this fifth episode, Jeff Owens and I talk about Joe Buck’s obsession with hair (plugs), how baseball’s TV ratings have dominated local markets and that the NFL’s viewership has declined, MLB playoff coverage – and how Cubs ace Jon Lester inadvertently got attacked on social media during the presidential debates.
In this fourth episode, we discuss Monday Night Football, the Presidential Debates, the rumored split of Mike & Mike on ESPN’s long-running radio/TV show, the importance of reporting to landing a TV sports gig – and why I’m becoming a fan of Stephen A. Smith.
In our new weekly sports media podcast, we address the NCAA pulling seven championships from the state of North Carolina during this academic year for failing to rescind House Bill 2, ESPN’s coverage of the NFL, more Colin Kaepernick backlash and much more.

In addition, we plan to interview professional sports media journalists and experts, to offer advice to younger journalists, and evaluate sports coverage. Who knows where else this will morph?
