Episode 37: Apple big soccer deal, Turner Sports’ new leader and The Big Get Chris Solomon of No Laying Up

News of Apple’s all-encompassing Major League Soccer deal broke just before Andrew Marchand and John Ourand taped this week’s podcast. The two go in-depth on deal terms and what Apple’s involvement means for the rest of the business. Marchand and Ourand also analyze what Luis Silberwasser’s surprise appointment as chairman and CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery Sports means for the sports media business and what changes to expect at Turner Sports.

Speaking from the US Open, Solomon talked about the future of LIV Golf and the PGA Tour and what to expect from both. As always, the two pick who’s up (Peyton Manning and Don Garber) and who’s down (Bob Chapek and Jay Monahan), as well as the Call of the Week from Mike Breen.
