Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated is one of the best writers/reporters in the sports media industry. His podcast, the SI Media Podcast with Richard Deitsch, is a must listen, and if you aren’t following him on Twitter stop missing out on gems on everything from sports, to media, to politics. Richard was kind enough to join me in a discussion on a range of topics that I couldn’t be more excited to get his opinion about.
In today’s episode, we discuss the state of media, the future of streaming services, viewers impact on programming, “Hot Takes” vs. Journalism, monetizing content, who Richard’s #1 pick would be if he were starting a media company, and much more. (Run Time: 37 minutes)
