Media Talk With Sports TV Ratings’ Robert Seidman and Former FOX Sports Executive Patrick Crakes

Robert Seidman, proprietor of Sports TV Ratings, and Patrick Crakes, an industry consultant who was a programming executive for FOX Sports, join the podcast again! We discussed:

– Is it a good idea for Katie Nolan’s new digital show to be on ESPN+?

– The bourgeoning sports OTT wars: ESPN+, DAZN, BR Live, and what happens if Amazon really gets serious.

– NHL’s current rights deal is $200 million per year with NBC. Could it triple or more when it comes up?

– What happens with the Fox Sports RSNs?

– Gambling is going to lead to a lot of new ad revenue across all sports media verticals but I wonder if gambling specific content will be oversaturated in comparison to how much the audience wants it. What do they think?

– What will NFL ratings do this year? Up, down, or flat?

Hope you enjoy!
