Sports Media Weekly Podcast #39- Jason McIntyre, The Big Lead
June 30, 2010Keith
Ken Fang of Fang’s Bites and I are back for another edition of the Sports Media Weekly Podcast.
This week we do not spend any time with the sports media news of the week, we spend the entire show with our guest.
Joining us this week is Jason McIntyre, Editor of The Big Lead, one of the most popular sports blogs on the web. Jason and The Big Lead were in the news of late as the site was recently purchased by Fantasy Sports Ventures, which owns and markets multiple sports websites and blogs.
We talk to Jason about his career and growth of The Big Lead. We also touch upon the role large sports blog networks like Fantasy Sports Ventures has in providing diverse, and relevant sports content. We explore how The Big Lead has impacted the way the sports media is covered. And we ask Jason whether he sent ESPN’s Colin Cowherd a thank you card after the site’s acquisition was complete.
