"Talk about television with TV guy senior critic Matt Rouse. You can follow him on Twitter at T V G, m. Matt Roush and pick up TV guide today. Good morning, Matt to talk to me. How's it going? Going pretty well, Um, you know, I was just saying to my dog was my viewing partner We need We need something. That's evil, Creepy, but clever. And you said we've got it. Well, yes, it is a show that is actually called evil. It was sort of a colt show that aired on CBS A season ago. It stayed off a roll. This last season's somewhat due to pandemic. But it was also such a weird show for CBS, which is the most mainstream network to put on this weird show about it's sort of like an X Files with religious spent where they're investigating supernatural events that could be demonic possession could be miracles. But you've got a skeptical forensic psychologist. You've got a guy Was a priest in training. And so it's again. It's sort of like a motor Scully thing. But again, it's just not a CBS show. So instead, it's coming back this Sunday, but it's not coming back on CBS. They decided to put it instead on their streaming service, Paramount Plus, and this is sort of a mini trend that's happening where shows that barely get renewed on network TV. Some of them are being moved to their streaming partners and people who don't stream or not happy about this. The evil fans do not want to pay extra for paramount. Plus but to watch Eva, you're going to have to the Bottom line is these episodes that I've seen so far for the second season are really really good. Well, this is my kind of show because it is a little bit off beaten Strange, and it's sort of scary, but at the same time, it's got a sense of humor, and it is just odd television. But to watch it, you're going to have to get paramount. Plus, and that is the trend of the future because everybody doubling down on their streaming partners because that is the future of television. Can I still watch on Netflix? Because they went there for a little bit of time, or did it? It was licensed in Netflix during the long hiatus for a bit, Uh, and that's when it became clear that it was going to become something that people will stream because it was more successful in Netflix than it was on CBS, and they also often happens. But no now now that it's original episodes Our exclusive exclusive the paramount Plus because there's no one stop shopping in streaming world. Got it. Um, Luca. I keep seeing ads for Luca. Even now, I'm just going through some of my instagram stuff. And and Disney is using Luca from Pixar. But now you're saying it was supposed to go to movie theaters, but it's going to go and said that Disney plus Yeah, well, that's the other trend is that movies The things that were originally intended for movie theaters, the blurring line and of course, that happened a lot during the pandemic when there were no movie theaters open but Disney Plus as it was just announced in your earlier report about the Beatles miniseries that's going to be airing around Thanksgiving on Disney. Plus instead of movie theaters, Luca has bypassed the big screen and this Charming Pixar animated film is now available as of today on Disney, Plus and unlike some of the things when the UM movie is both in the movie theater and on Disney, Plus for a premium, you don't have to pay extra for this one. It's just available to all cute little film about two boys in an Italian seaside village. But it turns out there actually see monsters in disguise, and if you get them wet, you can see the monster within so it's kind of fun, But it's you know, it's a sweet Pixar film, as many of them are, But if on Disney Plus because really again Disney's future is streaming Yeah, Every time I've seen a little Italian boy, I've always thought they were monsters. That's the way it generally works. Yes, Finally, TV is overwhelmed with the game shows this summer. What's up with that now? Peyton Manning getting back on TV as a game show host? Come on. Well, yeah, well, everybody is going to be a game show host at some point, because there's at least 20 of them going to be airing this summer between reality competitions in classic game shows, But this one I'm kind of interested in because they're reviving the old college ball format. Calling it the capital. One College bowl starts Tuesday on NBC in Primetime and Peyton Manning will be the host. And I'm not sure why his brother Cooper is his sidekick, and why they need a sidekick on a college bowl. I can tell you, you know, when I was a kid, I was always on the it's academic team in high school, so I love these kind of quiz bowls, so we'll see how that plays. But I mean, this is like that's like classic television. Some of these other things like celebrity dating game or just too stupid to live, But this one, you know, hope it actually thrives because I like a good quiz show. I'm still hooked on jeopardy. And you know, so you know, as it is all the networks are not going to put scripted shows on this summer. It's all going to be all about game shows everywhere you look, there's one Well, I can tell you why Cooper's the sidekick because, you know, he had hurt as as a young guy. And you know, it didn't fulfill the Manning. Uh, ability and so Didn't make the money that the brothers made. And at a certain point, he said, Hey, Peyton, how about a little something for the effort of I've been been I've been back right, So he's painting said Sure, I'll do it, But I gotta have Cooper as a sidekick. That's what your family, right Yes. Yes, That's right. Good for them are we'll come back in just a government. Thanks very much. We appreciate we talk to you next week. So you know you bet.

Yes yes for sure for sure. Let me i. I wanted to stop it in. When you hear the words we hear the word of phrase The word the words knowing your knowing your value and potential when you share that in your own words like what comes to your mind. Sure it's I know to a big question for for a lot of a lot of us What does our value really mean and purpose what resonates with me in particular is knowing self right as the adage goes. It's about personal awareness. It's bound confidence and self reflection. So when i think about self worth. That's oftentimes we assume that attributed to us by others or reinforced. What our value really need could be a title could be our partners. It could be our children and that's pawns to those external entities but when i about our value it really starts with knowing who i am knowing the value i bring to the table agnostic of what is provided back to me from the outside world now the outside will provide reinforcement but that confidence lies is bestowed upon me in my belief. Am i self efficacy now. With i think about purpose our purpose is aligned to that confidence in doing what we feel is right in what we feel makes us happy that we're contributing in some way shape or form to others to ourselves. It's that idea in my mind of being intentional with what we do. And what we hold the most value towards and that's what our purpose in my mind really reflects

A little bit in terms of how many people are actually in our organization. Even though i think we re tend to lean the little heavier on our side rightfully so.

SEC Chair Gary Gensler Plans 'Woke' Corporate Disclosure Rules
"Charlie. I don't know that we've ever spoken. If we did. It was a long time ago. How are you? It's a huge honor and pleasure, Mark. We did speak. You had me out for a book I wrote back in 2000 and three when I was at Newsweek magazine believe. Oh, my God. Well, let me say this. It's a real pleasure. You're a real serious reporter and you do your work and You broke a story today that caught my ear. And I'd like you to explain who is Gary Gansler. And what is he doing? Gary Gensler is a longtime fixture on Wall Street, essentially the revolving door between Wall Street and Washington in the sort of he worked at Goldman Sachs. He worked in the Obama administration, and he worked at the end. I think he worked in the Clinton administration, so he's been going back and forth. He's pretty rich. She was a partner at Goldman Sachs. Now he's the head of Wall Street's top cop, the Securities and Exchange Commission. Um, and he's doing something really interesting now over the years. Gary Gensler has more from sort of a Clinton Democrat into, I guess the best way to put it as an Elizabeth Warren Democrat. He's extremely woke extremely progressive. And he has some extreme ideas of how he wants Corporate America to act. He wants corporate America to adopt extreme woke. Policies he wants. Essentially every company to environment embrace environmental standards. He wants every company to have quote unquote diverse boards and diverse workforces, and he he wants to use government as the lever to do that, and he's doing that right now. At the Securities Exchange Commission. Because the Security Exchange Commission has enormous power over corporate America. It basically can mandate what they do and how they do it, and it could do that through a lot of different levers enforcement actions. In this case, what he's doing is he's proposing rules. And those rules will be passed by the Securities Exchange Commission, which is majority Democrat now, so he's going to ram them through without any without any Republican voice, And these are rules that essentially forced companies. To be more woke in certain areas in in terms of environmental issues in terms of board diversity, they will have to disclose those that their diversity have what they're doing for the environment. And when they do that, obviously, it's going to be a an object where the mainstream media is going to weigh in and say, Look at this company. Company. X is not his woke his company wide. They're not doing as much here than not doing as much there. Uh And I guess the bottom line is this. Listen, you may believe in these policies if you're liberal, if you're a free market capitalist like me, I care about the bottom line, to be honest with you, But if you're a shareholder, you really should be caring about the bottom line. These are not bottom line issues, and they Feed the S E. C s mandate. If you read the mandate, which is to make the markets safe, poor investors to make sure companies disclose stuff that investors care about for too wet to to weigh whether they should Invest in the stock or not. I mean, this is politicizing companies and corporate disclosure to a level that we've never seen before, and he's doing it. He proposed these rules and they

"He says, Uh, this is Michael Goodman is by top 10 Media Lies piece of New York Post. I just said are there I always pride myself on no us in the US are the worst. You don't know us. There's a no odd rule here. Back to Goodwin. Uh, just messing with quote. Lie Number five was the Ukraine impeachment of Trump. Creative fiction based on a complaint from an anonymous member of the Swamp, who never even testified. But others did to say the president is trying to get information on Biden. Family corruption in Ukraine was guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors. Yes, I have the visual AIDS in front of me this ladies and gentlemen, if you're watching on Fox Nation at home, that is a photo taken from Hunter Biden's material of Dad. Joe Biden, President Biden. Now I even put a little circle around as a Sharpie so you can see that's him. With hunters, Ukrainian business partners that Joe Biden said he knew nothing about. Here's the receipt right in front of me. I keep it handy on my desk right here. Receive Hunter Biden. There it is. The Mac shop hunter Biden's computer hunter Biden signature right there, bill to Hunter Biden even at his phone number. We redacted that so nobody calls hunter. Although he probably cancelled the number. I can even give you the quote number 7469 when Hunter dropped off his laptop, so kind of weird how the impeachment holsters told you Trump was engaged in illicit Activity in Ukraine. Yet if you read the story upside down, you

Stay with us. My career started almost twenty eight years ago. I was a police officer by career. Starting law enforcement in austin texas and in nineteen ninety eight. I joined The fbi and through that time as you imagine we went through everything you can imagine with nine. Eleven and the changes that evolved within the bureau. I went to cyber and i was one of the first agents out there to really start. Cyber task forces in the bureau moved to headquarters where worked in what was called the special technologies and applications office. so that's where we were looking at horizon technologies and horizon events that we might need to plan and prepare for.

The Transformation of Audio Advertising: 3 Key Drivers
"Three kind of key drivers that get us very excited. One is for the first time in the history of broadcast Through machine learning and through continental lyrics. We have context. We know what the customers listening to. And not just the the station or the the program or But like what were they talking about. Thirty seconds before the ad started. And what are they talking about. Afterwards so we can start to make advertising that's more contextual on more appropriate And less intrusive in the listening experience the the second point is got great address ability You know the broadcast industry for a long time was a one way medium where they broadcast out into the world and they didn't know who is listening had to kind of work with third parties like nielsen and arbitron and others to sort of assess their audience and understand who they were. We can understand that at a one to one level now And then the third leg of the stool to your point is interactivity. So you have context. And you know who you're talking to you can allow them to interact with brands. You can have them to interact and purchase You know items that they're hearing about in real time and so you know all of that together you know takes Audio from a place where you know largely i think marketers said well. It's great for brand awareness. It's great for frequency. But i don't really know of it's actionable. I don't really know whether it delivers real outcomes for me. And how to track that to a medium that can compete with video that can compete with display and that you know we can actually understand on a very detailed basis. Its performance caliber And i think that it's very exciting for everybody. It gets exciting for the customer. Because they start getting ads that are more appropriate more contextual and more engaging for them and less disturbing in the in the content consumption experience and it helps marketers tremendously because they can actually engage their audience in a way that's meaningful And that drives. I think hopefully a lot of value For the ecosystem of partners that were creating around the platform. So i think it's a very exciting time like i don't think we've ever been at this moment Before an audio but the thing. I'm i'm very sure about. Is you know over the next five years or so The days of of radio the way that we knew them Not only will. They be distant memories. People won't just be laughing at. Oh god you guys used to use tapes and record off the radio But they're gonna say oh. You never talk to an ad before right happens all the time. That's that's how it's designed now

Focus on consumer journey really great. She's create something very compelling.
Dissecting the Diverse Applications of Voice and Conversational Interfaces
"Let's talk a little bit about Conversation all space whether it's voice or Chat interfaces and if can you share a little bit with us about how you view that at the at the design center there do you view conversational interfaces sort of holistically and then whether it's voice or chat than it breaks down from there or do you view voice and chat as two separate channels to question so maybe let me may become with the way that we approached it originally and then i'll try to answer the voice versus check questions so we were really excited with what The amazon alexa team ruled out early. On which was the ability to purchase and pay for anything with the card on file most likely visa card Giving rise of our company and our market share and and so we were really excited. That technology rolled out. We also heard that. The verification method which to us is a very It's the thing that we spent decades on to make sure we get right. Was this audible. Four digit pin in. We understood that was like absolutely the way to do it. That was the right solution for the right time or like well. Can we hit rate on this. A little bit and see where we can go and so we took voice as an opportunity to potentially be biometric modality and reinforce how we would verify the customer to initiate that payment transaction and ultimately we found his voice as a verification method. An-and identification method in certain respects. Just not quite there yet and it may or may not ever be there however it has a lot of applicable in other use cases and we wanted to make sure we knew as much as we needed to about the space to be able to apply it in different ways and so when it comes to chat. We're trying to label like educating helping our partners understand how chattanooga faces work utilizing natural language processing and then obviously that natural handover win. The voice voices the input method as opposed to the keyboard. And how those two play together. And i think the fundamental things that we've learned our it really just waiting for the customer to figure out and tell us what they prefer right We actually just spoke with the company couple of weeks ago where they're bringing more humans into the automated interface not less. They're actually going the other way. They're saying that there is more to augment multiple human interactions with chat whether it's voice or keyboard style interface four the data input then there's more value in bringing more humans in there is less and so our prediction was obviously in an l. P. is gonna start getting the world of customer servicing and. This company is absolutely shown us the opposite

There was a fifth person but he didn't last very long but what united. The four of us was a desire to build the best firm in the business. We didn't believe that we could do that with our previous franchises. Even though both we're probably in the top five in the business we thought we needed to do something radically different in order to rise to the top and so Given that each of merrill pickard and tv.

She's got a research program that actually trains you on how to shift. You're thinking into positive gear. So thanks for joining me judy. Thanks for having me. I'm excited to talk about this cool. So why don't we just jump in and have you tell us about yourself and your program. Yeah happy to so. This works started for me. So i'm i'm trained as a social psychologist in. My expertise is in stress and coping emotion. And i started my career studying how people cope with stress so You know when something difficult happens as it does to all of us constantly difficult happens. What do you do to cope with that to. How do you feel better. And we were doing a study of men caring for their partners with aids. This was the early to mid nineteen ninety s so before the treatments more effective so it ended up being a study of the stress of caregiving as well as the stress of bereavement has many of the partners died and early on in the study caregivers. And we were. We were asking about what's stressful about the what's stressful about caregiving. And how are you coping with it. And then that would be the end of the interview and they they said you know you're not asking us about the good things and we want to talk about that and i were sort of surprised what he good things horrific like this is some of the worst human can experience but they said no there are good things going on and so we added a question where we ask them to tell us about something positive in meaningful that happened in the past week that help them get through a day and they almost in almost every single interview in did hundreds of them. The participants could come up with something positive. That happened recently. That helped him get through a day and they were small things like a beautiful sunset or a walk on the beach or making a a meal that their partner enjoyed so they weren't winning the lottery. Or you know finding a cure for cancer like they were they were little everyday things and by focusing on them and experiencing now and talking about them they were able to than that help them cope better with the stress of the caregiving the bereavement so based on that finding then some other research. That was coming out in the literature and some more work that we did. We decided that we wanted to put together a program that helped people experience more positive emotion on a daily basis which then would help them cope with whatever type of stress they're coping

"If you're not if you're not Joe Rogan. Like a good example is I'm I'm not sure how familiar you are with the tech system, but there's a guy named. Ben Thompson writes a daily newsletter culture tech ARY, which is a scam and service and and he kind of does deep dives into the tech space. Each day and people pay on a monthly basis to have access to his email newsletter. It's hard work to put out insightful content that people are willing to pay for every single day. So you really need to be able to provide a lot of value if you're not an alias talent and and I think that's kind of you know. An issue that you get into with a lot of these athletes is. They're not committed to putting out content that you're willing to pay for every day, so they need to be. You know Michael Jordan to draw that kind of audience. You know to be able to do it on an ad-supported basis, and even if you're doing it on expert basis, you gotta be willing to. Commit the time and efforts into into putting the content out and. As, we know retired athletes. A lot of them aren't aren't motivated because they're financially well off to to invest all their time and resources and building media company, so I'm not sure that you're going to see a ton of this athlete side, and it may be why the the company that you're talking about in the UK hasn't particularly gotten off the ground on the media side. It makes a little bit more sense because these guys are putting out content every day. The question is. Can you put enough confidence of of value to be able to to get people to pay for in? Getting back to kind of the quote. That John Kosner said is bundling them together the. There's much more value in obviously you know when you can increase the value. Your chances of getting somebody to pay for. It is better so I think this is certainly a trend. You're going to see on the media side particularly as a television budget's tight. You know the economy's in tank at presumably can be less advertisers spend even although on the sports side I'm not sure that's necessarily the case because it is the one kind of you know area. Or the one vertical that still commands huge numbers. Of Audience Remember. Or might even sure if you're aware, but Hollywood is shooting right now. So it's not like new avatars. You know primetime content to begin with the fall so. you know if you're an advertiser and you need to reach the masses. You know you're selling a new car or something. sports is really the only place to go, and so I'm not sure that this. You know how how how? Far Off, you know budgets are GonNa get slash on the sports side, but I can certainly see top talent facing pay reductions, says hey, listen you know for all the work. I'm doing for network. Television, an audio and you know blogging and Blah Blah Blah I go and do this on my own for more money. And that's certainly what a guy like Simmons did in.

They can promote themselves and if they can do that might as well try to collect you know all the revenues and. An Monaco's of the best they can and guys like Simmons. and.

They could if they were each standalone. Quite. You know that's that's. An idea again it's been around a while. You know tons of the long tail, but we're starting to see people really take it seriously and make big bets now. You mentioned spotify. In and around podcasts, which is relatively controversial, but Let's. They does it when you push this the the athletes. We only really seen this happening once they retired. We're not seeing it particularly in during their peak years. That's why some of the the sort of. Arguments in an people hovering around blockchain and Bitcoin, and Crypto is quite interesting sort of. Because this seems to open up an avenue because they can then start to deal with their audience directly in a way that they've never really been able to. Before the reason that so here's the thing in in theory, you would say yes. An athlete could just launched their own channel and monetize it. The problem with the issue is that you really need to be a-list. Most, saying I'm not to watch it by the way just I had the opportunity. Is there I think that's? The issue is that. It's not as easy as one with think, and there's probably not a ton of people that can build their own media company as a standalone because you need to be a list and you need well. Let me rephrase that you either need to be a-list or need to be able to provide a ton of value. If you're a-list.

Now you? You can't. You can't get a team for less than a billion, and there's a lot of them that are closer to two billion, so these have become real businesses in businesses gotten smarter. And so, that's certainly a trend obviously corona viruses kind of only expedited, because budgets are being cut in budgets are being cut writing the checks WanNa. Know where the money's going and what the returns are GonNa be so You're seeing this trend towards more about transparency, accountability and. You know what was kind of interesting about the the man about the about the Liverpool Nike deal. Is that they? part of that accountability to onfield performance, which makes a lot of sense because when teams are performing well, there's more interest this more people in the stands. There's more people on watching on television you know and. And thus ability to activate the sponsorship is better, so there's more value in it. Yeah, I mean I think that what's interesting is like. I said that they're using wins and losses as a metric. Not the only metric certainly, but a metric to to. To value today these sponsorships because when teams are losing, and and they're the the kind of the bottom of the standings, and people aren't watching these obviously not all as much value in it for the sponsor, and and they don't want to be paying.

We're seeing subscribers decline on the on the on the linear bundle side. Right like we're down from you know I. Don't Know Lake think it's like eighty million cable subs now is the number and so at and let's say like drops down to fifty million Well, then people need to make up the other thirty million on the digital side Some of those will be made up in digital bundles. Kind of be like a redoing of digital asset, some digital side, but I, think there's some people who think that there's GonNa be Allah heart offering to If if all you want is ESPN net. Maybe you pay forty dollars to just have ESPN as opposed to paying fifty dollars for one hundred channels, ninety nine of which you don't watch I think that makes a lot of sense and I. think that as long as you don't. As long as you don't blow up the bundle the value in the bundle, you can do that so what they're talking about on a regional sports network basis. Is is interesting because if you think that were moving towards the direction where? Content is going to be sold on an alicarte basis on the digital side. Being one market has a lot of overlap. That's not necessarily good for volume. If you buy multiple markets, you're now able to tap into twice as many subscribers or whatever the percentage is a significant number of subscribers. Which is which is you know? Obviously what would help you sell a hell lot more? Individual cart digital subs, so just A.

You think that that's an aspiration. The more broadly held you think this doesn't isn't just popped out of anywhere as it. Yeah, I'm just wondering. There's an American angle to this. Which I probably don't understand which is that regional sports network bit because we don't really have in the same way over here. Yes so. Regional sports networks in a kind of very much. Drive the cable bundle here in the US. A lot of people subscribe to television because they're.

I refer to them as kind of platform businesses. The city football group is a little bit different. They're more of like a roll up of soccer franchises across the globe and there's actually. There's actually somebody here in the US Jody gross who is trying to put something similar together although there's there's some questions about whether or not, he has the money to do that and some other concerns, but the I had a conversation with Ted Leonsis probably about six months ago. Ted Is the owner of the Washington capitals in the Washington Wizards in Washington mystics and an Ted's belief was that. Platform businesses. Where you have the infrastructure in place to kind of plug and play teams you know in terms of advertisers in terms of you know a meteorites partner in terms of an all these things that kind of drive the business. If you have it all in place, you can kind of plug teams on and together. The value of them is worth more than than any one individual, because they're all able to Kinda draft off each other. and.

"Consulting and all that kind of stuff will sit behind a paywall. and. You Know Scott I mentioned he was doing these power launches. Scott night. I had pitched him on this idea of you know. I mean he was already thinking about it. But of doing kind of a a a Davos of Sports, business, and getting you know all of the team owners across all of the League's to a single destination, and really having a conference that serves them and so that's that's kind of what sport it go is Tell, you mentioned you mentioned sorted. You've made the conference market is. Obviously a strange time in a worrying time for for. All conferences and not just in this sector, but it's quite interesting seeing how. How they're innovating, and you know somethings working some arm I'm not huge fan of sort of zoom. Panel type thing I share your misgivings about the sort of calm. A lot of the conference experience I do go to a few, and it's always just to meet people I like going and meeting people in the whole in the in the bars I'm I'm less enamored with is quite difficult to get people to sort of talk. Honestly I think it might be impossible actually to just to talk. Honestly you know on a on a panel because it's such a performance element to it and you have to then, and they're wearing a badge and they have to play that game. Blame them individually, but it's quite difficult to to engineer interesting conversation, but there is a sort of. Feels like there's a space between zoom and S and television. You know there's there's something that leaders did a really interesting thing. Couple of weeks ago that he the new. York, Conference and that felt like this is. This is moving in that direction. It feels like there's a there's A. There's something going on which. Might evolve because getting people into hoes like the good old days. He's going to be going to be slow. Going is going to be going to be difficult. But it feels like there's some technology will help, but it's gotta be better than sort of a of a zoom panel, which is pretty hard to. Justify, the best of times and you know when everyone's busy or or worrying about what you think. Yeah I'm with you. I think Zoomed for me, I, attend these conferences from the same purpose that you do is to meet people. If you take the premise that most of the people are there to meet people you can understand why we think that there's an opportunity kind of at the top end. If you get all the decision makers together, there's value in. It is not a lot of value in it for them. When most of the people at the conference or you know looking for better jobs or looking for jobs, which is kind of the case, Y, you don't have. Kinda owners ending these conferences as we speak, I'm with you I. think that the technology is great. It's nice to have the zoom conferences and to be able share ideas, but everything is very surface level, and you don't have the opportunity to do that..

"Of sports, business space, I'll never forget I went into Major League Baseball's offices one time, and and I was having a meeting, and there was a stack of equity research for some talking about fifteen companies more maybe and. I said to the guy I said you know. What are you guys doing with all those equity research reports, and basically it's recognizance They're looking for ideas. They're looking for trends with their competitors are doing. They're looking to see where the industry is moving and so yeah, they're not buying public equities, but they are at very closely following the market, and and following companies you know that impact, their businesses, and so you know for where I was in technology media and telecom. You know obviously media. A meteorites are a large portion of the of the business, and so now in following those companies is important for for teams in Leagues So, let's let's jump off there and I. Just wanted to be interesting to just look a couple of the stories. I thought we'd just bounce off. Some of you'll recent. Out, the on the median meteorites cy, we've got this. The Harris Blitzer story about. Is Potential I sort of super regional sports network another. This is a story that was broken by you. May Scott Nick, who we should talk about Scott. A bit should wait we Shaka's. You've got a relationship that we spoke. Oh what Scott is building. Yeah, so you know Scott Scott Night Actually We run in the same kind of Joe Fouled Circle, so we've known each other for a long time and we probably I had a conversation. I knew Scott was trying to build what ended up becoming sport ago at least two years ago. And the idea basically was that. There's a lot of people serving kind of in the middle of the sports business ecosystem. If you will the middle and low end and low end, I consider you know people that are in school and looking to break into the industry The fat middle is kind of you know all of your sales and marketing professionals and. People kind of doing the day to day work, but not necessarily making the decisions. And then you have that really high end audience team owners and network heads and agency heads, and the people that are really the movers and shakers, and there's just not a lot of of of outlets that are speaking to that audience in providing value for the audience I always use the example of like like the conference business, which has become pretty robust in the sports business space..

"And. A really good product, but just by the nature of Equity Research you're selling forty fifth. Research Equity Research Basically in-depth. Analysis on publicly traded stocks, and so I was working for TM teashop, which means technology media and telecom, and we were Evalu- shop so a large portion. What we were doing was or or majority what we were doing was trying to identify stocks that were intrinsically undervalued relative to the price they were trading at. And I had thought that there was an opportunity to kind of if if I could give people something they wanted to read every day. It would eventually read one of these forty or fifty page reports, and then they would see how good it was in that they they should be buying our product so. That was the initial concept. Kevin Duino the example I always give is Kevin. Durant tore his Achilles inquired to Kevin Durant tearing this aquiles, there was a lot of talk in the New York market that durant was gonNA come in play for the Knicks, if came in played for the Knicks theory was that. You know television viewership. A Madison Square Garden Network would increase dramatically, and they would be able to obviously increase their advertising dollars and You know so. There was a lot of anticipation excitement that the stock would increase in value. If Trent were to come, so it had kind of been bought up and then Alan durant towards Achilles and it became obvious that he wasn't going to be. Be Coming to the New York market, the stock dropped by eight or nine percent, and so the basic idea is I, could tie those two things together, the stock, dropping and Durant, getting injured, and Oh, by the way if you WANNA learn more about Madison Square Garden, networks, we have this great forty or fifty page report on the company. That was the original premise for John Wall Street. and. What happened, was that really early on I linked up with a guy named Joe Fabrizio Who You you, you know I I I haven't known Jim the other day. We'll have rather. He spoke to me. He's a great talker. His Joe is just for those who aren't aware of Joe. He puts out a weekly newsletter. Joe's kind of an old school pr guy. He ran calm for the Knicks in the nineties and two thousands and he's kind of referred to him as Kevin Bacon of the sports business industry. He's kind of at the center of it and has connections to everybody in everybody kind of knows who he is, and so really early on I linked up with JOE and. He made some introductions for me I started to kind of build this high profile audience. But not necessarily the audience that was buying publicly traded equities, and certainly not the institutional investor. And so I just writing about stories where we necessary necessarily tied to sports, stocks and We're just covering what I thought were the kind of biggest most impactful stories in the on the business and finance side of sports. Heavily trying to identify trends and Really try to serve the team owner The one.
