This is the first Sports Media Notebook that I'm writing for Awful Announcing. If you're not familiar with my work at Fang's Bites, the notebook is an opportunity to provide a mix of stories, links and analysis all into one post. I hope you like it. Any comments, write 'em below.
The notebook comes to you in bullet form.
* We know of one show that will air on Fox Sports 1 when the new network launches sometime in August. Regis Philbin, yes, Reege, for all intents and purposes confirmed to CNBC on Wednesday that he will host a program that will be officially unveiled next week at an advertiser upfront presentation in New York. John Ourand of Sports Business Journal reported earlier this month that Regis was in talks with Fox to host a sports version of "The View." It now appears that the talks have led to a contract. Ourand also reported in his story that Jay Mohr who hosts a show for Fox Sports Radio in the old Jim Rome timeslot was also in discussions for a series on FS1. We'll find out next week if that comes into fruition as well.no comments
