The SVG Podcast: Michael Connelly, SVP/EP, Fox Sports Regional Networks
Talking the latest in tech, production, and operations with the RSN exec
What is the duty of a regional sports network? Is it to broadcast the games of the professional sports teams in a given market, or do the responsibilities extend beyond that into the local communities?
Fox Sports Regional Networks showed where they stand on the topic last Saturday as Fox Sports North produced Hockey Day Minnesota and Fox Sports Indiana presented Basketball Day Indiana. Both featured a full day of high school, college, and professional games, some of which were broadcast from exceptional locations.
On this episode of The SVG Podcast, we’re on Lake Bemidji at Hockey Day Minnesota, catching up with Michael Connelly, SVP/executive producer, Fox Sports Regional Networks, to talk about the latest tech he has his eye on, what’s the latest in production and operations at all of the 22 RSNs he helps oversee, and why serving the local community is important for an RSN.
The SVG Podcast is for the sports-video–production professional looking to keep up with the latest in sports-video–production operations and technology. The program features interviews with some of the biggest, most influential names in the sports-video business talking trends and topics that are making an impact on the industry.
