SI Media Podcast: Katie Nolan, host of Garbage Time on Fox Sports 1
Welcome to the 17th episode of the Sports Illustrated Media Podcast with Richard Deitsch. In this podcast, which is published weekly, Deitsch interviews members of the sports media about their work, and interesting people about the sports media.
This week’s guest is Fox Sports 1’s Katie Nolan, the host of Garbage Time, a half-hour show which mixes sports commentary and topical comedy. In the podcast Nolan discusses how her show comes together each week, how Fox Sports management views what she does, why she antagonizes certain male media members, her relationship with HBO’s Bill Simmons, the value of interacting with Twitter users, why she enjoys cursing, aging in television as a woman and much more.
Nolan also reveals that Garbage Time will be moving to a new time slot for the second season, which begins in September. The show will air on Wednesdays at midnight ET, instead of on Sundays.
