"You, I was afraid you're gonna tell me some paparazzi snaps your picture. Oh, finally, we wait out his mark. I might that might happen next. I have put that picture of myself wearing that thing up on social media before that may come back to haunt me. Like it did, Jen Psaki she She wore something like that with a hammer and sickle on the front of it One time. I know. I think she got a gift from an ambassador in Russia or something. So yeah, that Z Just two wild. Hey, did you get to watch the CNN Clown hall last night? By chance. You know what? I've been watching clips of it this morning. I can't even believe I'm absolutely dumbfounded. I will try not to be speechless. And since you're not supposed to be that in our business, but honestly having the president of the United States Call genocide of the week. Gers a cultural difference like Wow, it's it's amazing. And then then you have you have a Washington Post reporter online today, excusing him, saying that we didn't have any vaccine before he came into office as a verbal stumble. It's like the the lengths that they will go to Seo just kind of pat him on the head and cover up for him is absolutely amazing. I want to play that bite because The particularly the vaccine bite. Because Anderson Cooper had an opportunity to correct him when he came to the end of his sentence. But he chose not to. Instead, he basically affirmed what the president had said, Go to cut 10, please. And the biggest thing, though, is you remember when you and I know I shouldn't say it that way, if you remember, but when you and I talked last we talked about. It's one thing that the vaccine, which we didn't have what we came in office, but vaccinate or how do you get the vaccine in the someone's arm? So you need the paraphernalia need the needle. You need the mechanism to be able to get it in. You have to have people who can inject it in people's. That's been one of the press. I was just getting enough people. Yes, Now we have we have made significant strides. No. Anderson. That question is Excuse me, Mr President. You said you didn't have the vaccine when you came in the office. Yet Millions of people have already been given the vaccine by the time you got in the office, and we wouldn't have it without Operation Warp speed, which was put into effect by the Trump administration. Why? Why not Why? But Anderson Cooper not say that except for the fact that he's one of the sycophantic supporters of Biden, who didn't want to point out that stumble. It's absolutely mind boggling, and I just didn't quite think we cheat this starkly. But you know, like we've had four years of every time the president made a joke. That was an obvious joke. They would come out screaming. He lied. He lied. He lied again. And now we're going through this Absolutely. Craven disinformation campaign where you know here. We've got the president saying they didn't have the vaccine. Yesterday or the day before You had the vice president coming out and doing an interview with Axios, saying there was no plan to get anyone vaccinated when we don't as you just said it's over a million You've already been vaccinated Laker. I just It's so crazy and so craft and the media's just standing around going. Oh, they're so nice. They're so cool. They're so hip. I just it Z breathtaking. It is and and, you know, make journalism is dead in in many respects at the network level, and there are few people keep bringing up Peter Doocy. But when I watched the press conferences these days unless he's in the room, there are rarely any difficult questions asked of Jim Masaki, What Where is everyone else? Were they moved Acosta from there so he couldn't be accused of it. He was the primary thorn and President Trump side But there's nobody left eye that that's sad. That's a sad testament for our country. Look, I mean, here's the thing is your your media? You know, it's like I've got a lot of friends who are reporters. People in that business that I really respect, so I think we have to be careful not to paint a huge broad. Broad brush because obviously we need a fair and impartial forces state. We need the media to be holding our leaders accountable. There were times when President Trump needed to be held accountable. But now we're seeing just absolute abject, you know? Hey, yeah. Oh, it was a verbal stumble. I It's It's really concerning to me because Um, you know, having objective truth and having the media call them out is important. Well, I'm sad for what used to be. You know, I I was a working journalist for a long time. And I understand what your responsibilities are for that now I'm in a talk show host who's allowed to give my opinion and I understand what the responsibilities are are for that. It's a different lane. So now I can look back at what I used to do. And I can say OK. That's not how you're supposed to do that. Today. There's news out that trip The Tribune Company got sold. I don't if you saw that or not, they got sold to Alden Global Capital. Important thing about that story is that Alden Global Capital is a New York based hedge fund known for cutting costs and eliminating newsroom jobs. So the Tribune, which owns the New York Daily News, the Baltimore Sun, other newspapers they used to own a bunch of television stations. I don't know if they still do or not. They think they own one here for a while. Um, they're going to go on to make even more cuts. So so whatever's going on in mainstream journalism in this country is only going to get worse with news of acquisitions like that. Yeah, it is actually, and we don't talk about it a lot this way because we're used to looking at the three different Branches of government and the balance of power. But then you kind of got this force untethered..

You're interview with him. was was fascinating for any number of reasons and people should go listen if they haven't already but you. In mentioning that he works with this outfit called. That works criminal justice reform. You mentioned that that was Something that you had strong interest in yourself, and that the there was a moment there maybe ten years ago when you mo- almost went that direction. Yourself. I think you said Can you like to the extent that this is another? Interest something where an because I was thinking of this, too. We all these moments in our careers, where for various reasons, one path open that we didn't see coming. There are any number of things I can think of where I would not be here today covering the NBA. If things have just been slightly different. How close were you to to go down a different path? There I I have to I. Want to go back and dig through emails because I mean so at the time I was working. I believe I was working at the Stanford advocate. Newspaper covering criminal justice I might have transitioned to my next job, which was American lawyer magazine covering stuff that was not really in my wheelhouse so much. Somewhere in there and Vera had an advertisement for a job opening for. Public Relations and they do like it was a cause that I'd become very passionate about the criminal justice system was kind of criminal justice reform. I definitely went for interview. Maybe even a second interview with the guy who was the head of their PR, department very good guy and Campbell's. In I have to dig through my email to see if I was offered the job and turned it down or I think what was more likely that it was very clear to me that I was going to be a finalist, or or get very very far like there was a really good chance, and then I pulled out, because I just got cold feet about making the transition, but either way, either got offered, or had a fifty fifty shot at getting offered a job in. PR FOR VERA and. And this was two thousand nine ish, probably two thousand eight something like that and I just decided. I'm not quite ready to pivot you know, and and at that point you have to remember the Tribune company on the Stamford advocate. The Tribune Company went bankrupt. effect on newspaper was was catastrophic. The whole media industry was sort of caving in no broader economy had collapsed, and just media looked like a place that you maybe didn't WanNa. Be and newspapers especially. especially like a place that you didn't want to be so I was just looking around, but ultimately I decided. I'm just not quite ready to hit it like once you change the fear. Is it's it's hard to change back like once you're out. It's the fear. Is that like it's hard to? It's hard to come back to you here. NBA People talk about like when they contemplate going to take a job with a college basketball program or fees or Sunday's. Time out on just kind of out like can I come back in so that that's all that story was? No I thought that was fascinating and interesting, too. Because your interview with Iran I think. Was So well informed by your background having covered criminal justice issues and having a strong interest in that area, so I thought that was that was. PODCAST came to be told the story of the podcast when I went to a vera event like a year ago I saw someone from the NBA at the event and we kind of had this moment like wait. What are you? What are you doing here? What are you? What are you doing here and then Korans name came up and since then I was like I gotta I gotTa. Get Curran. Koran is for real man. That guy's a stud and and the way he continues to get back to Racine Wisconsin where he's from and. Give it. Give his time and money to this causes like that guy's legit. Yeah, no, he's doing great work. Important work and worked at certainly coincides with this moment wherein. An, a very poignant way to speaking of which you a story last Friday this is. Partially related, this is among the issues under the banner of bubble concerns, you had a story and ESPN DOT com, the enormous risks and stakes driving the NBA's safety discussions, so let's let's hit this part of it first. Of all the things that are driving potential, or all the things that could come up, that could derail or complicate the NBA's restart plans. Safety is as of course. was first on the list. Maybe still is. Where do you think they are in that? What was the general gist of of the experts? You talked to their feelings about the NBA Planet? We don't have that plan in front of us yet. It's one hundred plus page document that we thought was going to be. We'll thought it was going to be out by now. A couple of different times come out while we're doing. This podcast could come out what we're doing this. We'll present me with the dilemma. Howard Beck do I continue with the podcast or do I be a bad friend to you and bail immediately to cover a breaking story I. Think I would be a good friend to you. You know there's there's a small army of ESPN NBA reporters. That could probably handle this without you, but if you had to bail, you should bail We can pick up, but. Due due out any any who knows our moment day? But there's enough out there that that there's a yeah, there's there is a billy to judge it so. So I. Think and I interviewed. Lots of people lots of epidemiologist, lots of scientists who are epidemiology adjacent lots of expert to know this stuff I've talked to people around the NBA in around the NBA Community who are on the ground floor.

Certainly they're as businessmen to say, we're not going to spend it. However, I wear a cubs fan. I'd be pretty angry at this point. They're probably nearing the end of contention window, and this was a good time for them to go out and essentially make another large move, by the way, they were one of the best clubs in National League legitimate had a bad ending. So I could actually see them getting back to winning the division. Yup. Had an opportunity to go out. And and something that would dramatically increase your chances of winning the division and they've chosen not to do this complex. And you know, he says Sam is very interesting, Fred he budget constraints that they don't have financial restraints. I never really thought of it or heard phrased that Tom Ricketts may disagree. But most people got dough. So that brings us to one of the Twitter ball questions, which is more important than Tom Ricketts signing Harper or remodeling the ball park pouring, the dough in the neighborhood and hotel. Thinking the other day, Fred, I don't know. Maybe they did all this remodeling too soon. Number one phrase cubs. They they want a year early member journey. Fifteen people are saying the White Sox could possibly win a year earlier this year. So. Could it be that they were too soon empowering all that dough into understand a ballpark was one hundred years old it had to be remodeled and. You know for years Wrigley family. They did they probably spend more money than any other team back in the forties. Fifties sixties seventies. Right. Every year. They did major ballpark tearing down some of the girders and replacing this and they're rough and in all honesty. Comiskey park and Wrigley field. We're both built within the same two four year span. Twenty nine hundred ten in nineteen fourteen at Baltimore at one time had concrete falling and they both were the same architects. I believe Zachary of not I misspoke, but the Kaminsky regime, and then they never put nearly as much money into a yearly remodeling and rehabbing, and no, I'm not blaming anybody. But that part. When it was time to go and Wrigley field. But I look back now did Ricketts have to run in and do all this. You know, spend all this money to first year two on the factory as I think, they call it the plant. Yeah. But they're probably making money. Most of the things they spend money on. Right. All this stuff around it. So okay. But now there's now there's budget constraints financial, constraint advocacy. I think the budget constraints are just based on one thing. All right. Three pitchers. They signed last year that didn't perform time to give him the open checkbook. Yeah. Tired of given chat would and more. And moral money. And then at the end of the year having none of those guys helping you in a ninety five win season. If we had more time kid named the seven or eight free agent bus stolas in Boston that got the canton to death. Fanny no one wants to talk about. I I still think that's the bay. Those work. I think they'd still would have been they'd be out still spending money and bringing L eleven. Which is Martin to Tom Ricketts signing. Harper are remodeling. The neighborhood. He'll ninety percent to ten percent. Ninety percent of the voters believe he cares. More about renovating the ballpark in the neighborhood. Then he does signing Bryce Harper. Yup. Maybe that's why he didn't speak at the key a. All right next time record, sell the naming rights. See how this is going to be ninety five to five. Ties. The brewers sold the naming rights to the ballpark. Funny how the tax payers built Miller park. But the brewers get to sell the naming rights. They sold the naming rights. Register decided on a name for the stadium yet American family insurance. Now, they have not decided ballpark may. Maybe it's af I in Miller park or something like that. Or? Or something. Maybe Miller park is stolen. There were several Miller park presented by American family insurance or something like that. Yeah. Kind of like what happened in Baltimore. You'd never know. Ballpark too many things could go wrong with people making up their own an acronym. The man with the AFI. Oh. Got a message from Kenny Owens and LaGrange park. He said NFL, you know, they used to call the no fun league right now, we call it. The no flag lead. Thank you. For that. Let's see next should damn record sell the naming rights of Wrigley field. Yes, sir. Now ninety five to five sixty seven percent of the voters say no thirty three percent have said, yes, I'm surprised what if it's ten million a year. I'm surprised they have more. That'd be one Harper. I would have said. Yeah. Go right ahead, sell whatever naming rights, you can whatever you can get for naming rights. I'm looking here while we're sitting here Toyota park where the Chicago played now seeks stadium. It's what Seat Geek stadium ticket the ticket company. They got from one of the report says he here between two and a half and four million a year. So yeah, American insurance is like upwards of ten or twenty. I would think so. Thirty two four. Yeah. The naming rights are Wrigley field. It'd be big money. Big money. A little known fact, and I found this took me a long time about a year ago plowing through Google in through Wrigley field naming rights back. Back win Tribune company. Bought comes from the Wrigley family one of the and it was interesting to tie this together. Ricketts I bought the last five percent. He owns not one hundred percent of the cubs. The other just the other day the Tribune who had retained five percent of the sale to avoid. That's not the right word for tax reasons. As opposed to a straight sale capital gain. It was something else. What's that? I read was has been was challenged by the IRS. I didn't find out what happened regardless of that when rig when Tribune bought from Wrigley. This is I found is in crane many years ago. Kenny crane business, right? There was a double opt-out.

That's the weirdest. Yeah. There's there's something that we do in this business called time. Shifting you. Could you could pop up at all times of day? Do you get that? Do people ask you a lot? I get asked this. Sometimes do what's it like to hear yourself or to watch yourself or do you? Listen to yourself. Do you watch yourself on TV? You get asked that a lot.

So I wanted each of you to give just a little line or two about where you've been and what brought you to WGN analysts just start with you because you're closest to Chicago native which northwestern Rogers park, and my dream was always to work in Chicago. It was my dream. I grew up watching Walter Jacobson who works very radio station and all of the the legends that I just I just couldn't get enough of it just it was in part of my household. Just news and information. My parents, even though they weren't at all in the news business. They they really cared about the community. And they would they would make us talk about it, isn't that kind of thing. So it was my dream to come back here. And I went to Fort Wayne, Indiana, I spent a little time in Quincy was in Houston, Texas. And then I came back. Home. I was lucky enough to work here at NBC and FOX now WGN radio, and it's really been an interesting ride. You think about the people you met along the way and the stories and the front row seat? You got for history and a lot of ways. It sounds cliche. But it's very true. We get to be there. When things are magic is happening when Barack Obama was in grand park. I was there. And I just there. There's so many pinch me moments. But you're also to be a professional and cover those things at the same time. But it's really been. It's just a lot of fun. A lot of pinch me moments. Indeed, Ryan burrow, this city's a magnet because you know, I grew up here too. And I always thought that I'd have to go kind of away to seek my fortune. But I always wanted to come back here. And I'm so glad I did went to Valparaiso university. Just around the the Ben there in northwest. Indiana. Got my first gig in Fredericksburg Virginia radio station.

I was I've been told by other network people that I don't TV's the usually try to have at least four days worth of clothes four to five days. And then anything else he just by there. There you go, right? There's always a target by Kim, Gordon. As a little bit. Oh, there we go. Okay. My story is a little bit more unconventional than you guys. Because I grew up in Louisville Kentucky have a marketing degree went to the university of Louisville. Never really always love news and being a news junkie. But didn't really think about it until I was a mom was a stay at home mom for several years. And then decided he you know, what I think I'm a good writer. I love news. I'm going to try to get into this. And I contacted one of the radio stations in Louisville and said can I be an intern? Can I learned this business from the bottom up? And that's what I did. I worked at W H A S in Louisville for two years without pay learned the news business, and then they hired me. And I was there for several years until I moved to Chicago thirteen years ago. And now I've been here and you stay despite the cold winters. Crazy. I love it. But I never thought I'd be in a big time market like this.

"Now, Columbia NAS may have built its business on the name of glamour and clips, but it's not been quite as relaxed luxuries on the inside. It's voted the companies to sell three magazines to try to hold steep losses. Well, let's get more now from David Betty, his media reporter for splint, a David, this, the company behind titles like vogue and vanity phase. So how has it come off the rails in this way? I mean, is undergoing some of the same pressures that many primarily print publishers have in recent years, and it's really come to a head in the last year or two, the New York Times out with a report yesterday, saying that losses totaled one hundred twenty million dollars last year. So in response this, it appears as though Conde nast is trying to cut costs through basically reducing print run some for some of their various magazines sell off a few of their non marquee titles. Gulf digests w and brides, and also ramp up their video production, which typically gets a much better bang for your buck when you're. Trying to build out an advertising business. So they have a very tight needle. They must thread, but they find themselves under some of the similar pressures that we, we see with a lot of legacy publishers. Nowadays, this isn't the first time that they've tried to call security those pasta. It's wouldn't effective enough. I mean, they've certainly cut cost many times over the past decade or so, what has changed in the last year or two is that the consolidation of the advertising industry under Facebook and Google has continued apace if not accelerated. So whereas a lot of legacy publishers who could essentially are theoretically say to advertisers, hey, I have all of these great magazine titles. You can come to us advertise through all of them at once. They really can't compete with the scale of Facebook or Google when it comes to making that value proposition. So in many cases, we see you like publishers such as county Nass now reorienting their business. So you have some publications such as the New Yorker in wired in what. Have you that produce original journalism. They're increasingly moving toward subscription models and reader revenues where other publications, perhaps places that don't produce such original or differentiated journalism are moving more toward video where they can max out their advertising revenue my you mentioned the the titles of the that considering getting rid of golf digest and brides magazine. But in the end, if this doesn't stem, the losses are we talking about the possibility of having to put something like vogue up for sale. This certainly been the speculation in New York of the last twenty four thirty six hours. It is unclear whether they would like they would find a buyer who'd be willing to buy individual titles. I'm sure Conde would much rather prefer to side seldom all as a group, but we have seen in the last year or so massive consolidation within the magazine publishing mystery, namely, with Meredith purchase of Time Inc. so depending on say how that purchase shakes out and depending on how Conde's transition goes over the next twelve or eighteen months or so. We may see some movement in terms of either individual titles being spun off to individual buyers or them being sort of sold somewhere else as a package deal. So they might just decide to get out of the business entirely. I mean, it's certainly possible. I'm one of the undercurrent this running through all of this and as see in, you know, with other large newspaper publishers in particular, is that the mid to late twentieth century media conglomerate as we understand it is woefully inadequate inadequate to respond to the digital media virement. Places like Gannett and Tribune company essentially split their broadcast TV assets from the newspaper companies in the last five.
