Welcome to the 16th 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 NBC Sunday Night Football coordinating producer Fred Gaudelli, who's entering his 27th consecutive year as the lead television producer for an NFL primetime game. Gaudelli, who has produced five Super Bowls, discusses how NBC's Sunday Night Football production comes together, what traits NFL broadcasters need to be successful, how he woke up every day for years focusing on how he could beat ESPN, what coaches could be impact broadcasters, whether Sunday Night Football can be critical of Roger Goodell and the NFL, whether someone like Dennis Miller could work in a football booth again and much more.
