Episode 83 of the Sports Media Podcast with Richard Deitsch features ESPN analyst and host Jalen Rose, who appears on a variety of ESPN shows including NBA Countdown, Get Up! and Jalen & Jacoby. In 2011, Rose established the Jalen Rose Leadership Academy (JRLA), an open enrollment ­public charter high school in Detroit that gives students a leadership-focused education. In this podcast, Rose discusses his ESPN tenure in relation to his NBA career; why he has taken on the assignments he has; his definition of good sports television; how he has navigated all the talent changes on NBA Countdown; the viewership declines for the NBA; whether he thinks an in-season tournament is an interesting media property; the focus on analytics and advanced stats in the conversation around sports as it relates to devaluing of player intellect; whether it is frustrating not to talk about politics as an ESPN employee; the career conversations between he and his wife, Molly Qerim Rose; appreciating your position but planning your promotion; ownership interests and more.
