Who else could be the guest on the Silver Anniversary edition of the AA Podcast except our first and most frequent guest, the co-author of the #1 New York Times Best Seller Those Guys Have All The Fun - Jim Miller. With several stories surrounding ESPN in the last month, we catch up with Jim and get his take on the happenings in Bristol as well as a few stories he broke on his Twitter page. Topics include...
-TBS hiring Keith Olbermann and where his long-term destination might be.
-The reaction to the hundreds of layoffs at ESPN.
-Whether or not the bursting cable bubble is a myth or reality and the impact on ESPN and other sports networks of rising costs.
-Expectations for the new ESPN ombudsman Robert Lipsyte
-Culture change at ESPN evolving from the Steve Phillips scandal
-The rise and fall and rise of Stephen A. Smith.
-The increasing competition of Fox Sports 1, NBCSN, and CBS Sports.
