Episode 217 of the Sports Media Podcast features two guests. First up is Lindsey Adler, a senior writer for The Athletic covering the New York Yankees. She is followed by Sports Business Journal motorsports and combat sports reporter Adam Stern. In this podcast, Adler discusses what it’s like covering a team that has the potential to make sports history; if there is pressure on covering a team like the Yankees because every game has magnitude; whether people are more interested in reading about a winning team; how winning impacts things for reporters such as subscriptions and page views; the competitiveness of the Yankees beat; how front office people and players look at where she works versus other publications; how access has been this year and the difference from last year; women covering baseball who are under-35; the influences of Suzyn Waldman and Sweeny Murti for her; whether MLB will or should make a statement on the Roe decision and more. Stern discusses why F1 has agreed to renew its rights deal with ESPN through 2025; why Amazon and Comcast executives and Netflix did not get the product; how ESPN will advance the product in the future; what F1’s growth potential is in the U.S.; the importance of a U.S. driver to the growth; the importance of races being on linear television; the explosion of F1 podcasts; where he sees NASCAR’s viewership heading forward; whether a Drive To Survive show for IndyCar can move the needle, and more.
