Episode 338 of the "Sports Illustrated Media Podcast" hosted by Jimmy Traina features two guests.
First up is ESPN play-by-play man, Ryan Ruocco, who was calling the Nuggets-Mavericks game on March 11, 2020 when the NBA announced that the season would be suspended because of Covid-19. Ruocco talks about what that experience was like, how his mindset about Covid changed from that night until now, whether he'd be comfortable calling games in full arenas, whether he ever got used to calling games from home and much more.
Following Ruocco, Brian Stelter, CNN's chief media correspondent joins the podcast to discuss how the media has covered Covid, what the media has done well and not so well, what the media's responsibilities are in reporting about Covid vaccines, did he ever expect a pandemic to become so political, what it's like to cover media while working for a media company, the cable news wars and much more.
