JEMELE HILL LEAVES ESPN; BEADLE LEAVES GET UP!

Sports Media with Richard Deitsch - August 27, 2018 - 1:11:12

Episode 21 of the Sports Media Podcast features three guests. The first segment is a roundtable with Sports Business Daily media writer John Ourand and Black Sports Online founder and editor Robert Littal. In the podcast, the three of us discuss Jemele Hill leaving ESPN; what it means for the ESPN brand; why it happened; how much of it the decision was tied to Hill’s suspension last October or new ESPN president Jimmy Pitaro; what it says that ESPN’s most prominent African-American female voice has left the company; Michelle Beadle leaving Get Up! to return to Los Angeles for added basketball responsibilities; Fox’s foray into Thursday Night Football; whether college football viewership will be hurt by a summer of scandal; the future of ESPN’s The Undefeated and more. The third guest is Ryan Glasspiegel of The Big Lead website. We discuss Glasspiegel’s breaking the story of Beadle leaving Get Up!; why he thinks it happened; whether there is any relationship to Beadle’s comments about no longer watching football to that decision; the longterm future of the show; whether Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic would ever get back together, and much more. You can subscribe to this podcast on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Stitcher and more.
