In this week's podcast, we invite one of the sports blogosphere's favs, Jimmy Traina, who is on the move from Sports Illustrated to Fox Sports. In the last several years, Jimmy has taken Hot Clicks at SI to one of the most popular features not just at the magazine, but across the web in sports. In this podcast, AA chats with Jimmy about the move, the evolution of Hot Clicks, and the media, and an assortment of topics including...
-What it's like to now be co-workers with Erin Andrews.
-Why make the move now to Fox and how what he does there will differ from Hot Clicks. Hint: more regular content instead of merely posting twice a day.
-The evolution of the sports media and how Twitter changed the game.
-How he'll fit into the changing nature of FoxSports.com with their added emphasis on pop culture.
-The fate of his beloved miniature SI television.
-The explosion of national coverage for Mike Francesa in the last year and how the show has been "joyless" since the departure of Chris Russo.
-His top MLB and NFL announcers and who should replace Tim McCarver.
-What's on his bucket list at Fox.
-Whether or not he has any trash talk for the likes of Richard Deitsch and Andy Gray. Sadly, Jimmy does not. *kicks dirt*
