    Some good news that definitely goes against the grain.

    I believe Bernie and Saxon both write for The Athletic.

    Has Bernie’s firing been discussed here? I hadn’t even heard about it until a few days ago.

    There were no comments about it. The station’s parent, Hubbard Broadcasting, cut on-air talent in many of their markets and Miklasz was included. It makes sense that when you are trying to save money, you cut the highest paid employees, which he likely was.

    That did not take long. These guys are getting better and better at running companies out of business.

    It would be a shame to see an iconic entity like SI go under, but such is the way of the world lately.

    A tough time for a new media startup.

    Unemployment data for May released this morning wasn’t nearly as bad as the forecast. Now that PPP loan forgiveness timelines are being met, we might see more layoffs in the next month. Not sure if this is applicable with The Athletic (46 is 8% of 575, so perhaps not).

    Is it of her own accord? I haven’t seen the details behind it.

    Brian I really believe that it is mostly the serious hard core fans that follow traditional sports media. Casual fans and those who see pro sports as another of many entertainment options don’t read or click any of it, and they are rapidly replacing the hard cores. Try selling a 95 Bonneville to a millennial.

    Brian I once saw Bob Ueker get into a car just like that. The valet brought it up and Bob hopped in the back. The guy came around and taped on the window and handed Bob the keys. No joke.
