Welcome to the sixth episode of the SI Media Podcast with Richard Deitsch. In this podcast, which will be published weekly, Deitsch will interview members of the sports media about their work, and interesting people about the sports media.
This week, we broke the podcast into two episodes with two separate guests. The first guest is Joe Buck, the lead broadcaster for Fox Sports’ coverage of Major League Baseball, the NFL and the U.S. Open Golf Championship. Buck discusses how he prepares to broadcast different sports, if he's nervous about working in golf for the first time, dealing with intense social media hate, the momentos he keeps from his father (Hall of Fame broadcaster Jack Buck), his upcoming memoir and more.
The second guest is the ESPN baseball writer and editor Christina Karhl. On the podcast Karhl, who is GLAAD board member, discusses coverage of transgender athletes, how sports media outlets have handled the Caitlyn Jenner story, the advantages of covering baseball onsite versus away from the stadium, moderating ESPN's upcoming panel on trans athletes in an effort to educate its newsroom and more.
