The SVG Podcast: John Filippelli, President of Production and Programming, YES Network

Breaking down a wild summer of broadcasting New York Yankees baseball and tracing his Hall of Fame career in sports television

On a very special episode of The SVG Podcast, we are joined by John Filippelli, President of Production & Programming and Executive Producer of the YES Network.

“Flip” has been in the business for nearly half a century and has established a reputation as a true game-changer in the fields of production and programming. He also has a legacy for helping build projects from the ground up, working at NBC, FOX, ABC/ESPN, The Baseball Network, prior to being hired as the first employee at YES Network. Last month, it was announced that John will be inducted into the Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame.

John talks with us about everything from this bizarre summer of broadcasting Yankees baseball to some of the greatest highlights from his storied career.
