Welcome to episode No. 43 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 podcast guest is Fox Sports writer and former Sports Illustrated staffer Jimmy Traina.

In this episode, Deitsch and Traina talk extensively about a number of current media issues—some related to sports, some not—including Bill Simmons’s new digital project The Ringer, the current direction of FS1 and whether Katie Nolan is a good fit there, Peyton Manning’s future as a broadcaster, Rob Gronkowski and his party cruise, the changes on the Howard Stern show and whether that’s good for listeners, the media coverage of Donald Trump and much more.
