I am a close follower to media topics of all kinds. Inside and outside of sports, trends, transactions. All of it. As a result, I’m a big fan of Richard Deitsch, who is now with The Athletic after many years covering sports media at Sports Illustrated.
The 6th episode of Media Overflow is a little different, as Richard doesn’t cover a team or sport beat. His PR contacts are with networks and talent, but a lot of the messages ring true.
CLICK HERE to listen to my conversation with Richard, who was nice enough to join me amidst SI being sold and Lee Jenkins leaving media to work for the LA Clippers. He had bigger fish to fry and gave me 40 minutes. I hope you enjoy it!
