Episode 41: Big Ten & UEFA Rights Deals and Matthew Berry’s Destination

Sports media’s two biggest rights deals that are available at the moment – one for the Big Ten and the other for the UEFA Champions League – are the first two topics on this week’s podcast. Andrew Marchand and John Ourand provide updates on what viewers can expect once these deals get signed.
 
The two also look at Matthew Berry’s decision to leave ESPN after a 15-year run. Marchand and Ourand talk about where he’s headed and why it makes sense. They also look at who will replace Berry as the face of ESPN’s fantasy sports business. Other topics include a new on-air role at ESPN for Robert Griffin III and the latest on the NFL’s Sunday Ticket negotiations.
