Good audience for Broncos-Ravens opener; NFL media updates for 2013 season
Houston Chronicle - over 3 years
NBC’s broadcast of the Peyton Manning show Thursday night from Denver drew 25.1 million viewers for the NFL season opener. That’s up from 23.9 million for Cowboys-Giants a year ago and the third-best total for the Thursday NFL openers, which date back to 2002. The broadcast, which was delayed by weather for more than a half-hour, drew a 14.9 Nielsen rating and 26 share, which matches the time-shifted rating on KPRC (Channel 2). With that, let’s take a look at assorted network lineups for the NFL season: CBS – In addition to the long-running “The NFL Today,” CBS goes full-bore into Sunday morning rhetoric on CBS Sports Network with “That Other Pregame Show,” which airs from 8 a.m. to noon. Not sure I’m crazy about the title (why slight your own product?), but there is much that escapes me about marketing strategy. Adam Schein will host with retired linebacker Bart Scott, former Raiders executive Amy Trask, Brandon Tierney of CBS Sports Radio, Allie LaForce and fantasy sports rep ...

Awful Announcing - over 4 years
Yesterday we announced Decision 2012, the biggest election in the history of the blogosphere!  Your chance to decide whether or not AA legend Craig James retains his place on our esteemed Mount Rushmore.  It won't be easy though.  Senator James will have to hold off three challengers, each one battling through a tough primary season to reach the final stage.   The first of those primaries features a selection of AA's favorite play by play announcers from across the sports world.  These announcers are welcomed into your homes as the disinterested, confused, bombastic voices that bring you the sports you love.  For each primary, you'll see a list of candidates, their credentials, platform for America, and a campaign video from their past that may influence your vote. The Back, Back, Back Party "Backward... because 'Forward' is already taken." Candidate: Joe Buck Credentials: NFL/MLB on Fox lead announcer, former late night host Platf ...

Introducing Decision 2012 - The AA Mount Rushmore Election
Awful Announcing - over 4 years
Last summer we held a 32 person tournament for AA readers to vote on which current announcer or pundit would replace the venerable Joe Morgan on AA's Mount Rushmore.  The Joe Morgan Memorial Tournament was won by ESPN college football analyst Craig James in a landslide as details emerged regarding his shady behavior at ESPN.  As his later run for political office proved, nobody in the sports world deserves immortalization on AA's Mount Rushmore quite like Craig James. Since James left ESPN for a run at political office, I've been asked numerous times when or if we were going to have another tournament to replace the would be senator from Texas on our Mount Rushmore. The answer to that question is once again up to you. We're giving Senator James one more shot at election glory and the chance to defend his spot on AA's Mount Rushmore as the incumbent in our own Decision 2012 election.  With James' political history and the presidential campaign kicking off i ...

The sports rights dilemma- do you want a lot of a little... or a little of a lot?
Awful Announcing - almost 5 years
Not too long ago I met with an individual who was the founder and CEO for a startup who a couple years back sold his company to a larger internet company for a good chunk of change (vague and discrete at his bequest.) When discussing some of the various strategies Bloguin would pursue going forward (Awful Announcing's parent company), he uttered something to the effect of "That's the million dollar question. Do you want a lot of a little, or a little of a lot." His response was in regards to the equity of a company and if it was better to dole out stock to a larger group of people in hopes of making something very big with the added feet on the ground (but leaving yourself with a smaller slice) or to be more prudent in diluting the stock by not adding people who may not really add much to the equation. With that in mind, I think the saying can also apply to the pro leagues and conferences and their efforts to maximize revenue from television rights in this new era in whi ...
