As you'll recall from my piece that ran on this site on Monday, last week I spent my Sunday at the CBS broadcast center in New York City to observe CBS Sports Network's That Other Pregame Show. While there, I was able to get a few minutes with CBS Sports Chairman Sean McManus to talk about the pregame show, and pick his brain on a couple of other subjects.
Steve Lepore: How do you think TOPS has turned out, and what do you think it has added to your NFL coverage?
Sean McManus: I think it's off to a really good start. There's dozens of hours of pregame shows on, starting with... Sunday afternoons after the games are over. There's nothing but pregame hours, so we're trying to do something that's a little lighter, that has different perspectives. I think having Amy Trask, the first woman to be in this kind of role, has made a big difference. Bart Scott has developed, and I think Adam [Schein] and Brandon [Tierney] are good as well.no comments
