A former sports editor for the Athens Banner-Herald reached out to Eye on Sports Media last week, wondering if we could answer a couple of sports media questions submitted by readers to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's "Q&A" column.
The first answer is running today in response to this question:
Q: When a football game is not sold out, the game is blacked out in the home team’s viewing area. But when a baseball game is not sold out, it is still televised. Why the double standard?You will find the answer over on the AJC web site.
This is the 3rd time in recent months that Eye on Sports Media has been cited in/on a mainstream media publication. A few weeks ago, SI.com's Richard Deitsch linked to our story on the NFL on Fox production team shake-ups. The same story was cited in Sports Business Daily in mid-May.
The second answer for the AJC will run sometime in the next week.
