The SVG Podcast: Craig Barry, EVP, Production/Chief Content Officer, Turner Sports (Plus a Recap of CES)
We talk ELEAGUE, March Madness, and UEFA Champions League with the sports-media exec
As is par for the course, the first few months of 2018 are absolutely loaded for the team at Turner Sports. The NBA All-Star Game, March Madness, and the NBA Playoffs put the network on center stage. Plus, the network is set up to produce, later this month, its biggest esports event to date with ELEAGUE Major in Boston.
SVG Chief Editor Jason Dachman caught up with Craig Barry, EVP, production/chief content officer, Turner Sports, on the floor of CES in Las Vegas last week to discuss everything from what innovations are coming from esports production, what’s to come from Turner’s UEFA Champions League deal that kicks off this summer, and how the network — at times — takes a unique approach in its programming.
Dachman also provides a quick update on all the big sports happenings from this year’s CES and explains how Voice, AI, and more could be shaping sports-video production in the very near future.
