Episode 45: The Big Ten media deals & Jason McCourty

Hours before taping this pod, John Ourand broke the news that ESPN would not be carrying Big Ten football in 2023; Fox, CBS and NBC would share those rights. Andrew Marchand broke the news that CBS and NBC each would pay $350 million per year for their packages. On this pod, the two discussed everything you need to know about the deals, including what it means for the networks, what it means for Big Tech and what it means for college conferences.
NFL Network’s “Good Morning Football” host Jason McCourty joins as The Big Get and talks about how he got his broadcasting break at the NFL Broadcasting Bootcamp and where he wants to take his on-air career. McCourty, who won a Super Bowl with the Patriots, also gives his best Tom Brady and Bill Belichick stories.
