Welcome to the SI Media Podcast with Jimmy Traina. This podcast, which will be published weekly, will focus on all things sports media via interviews and roundtable discussions. Occasionally, an athlete or celebrity will drop by for a chat as well.
Episode 203 of the Sports Illustrated Media Podcast features an interview with Ian Eagle of CBS Sports and Turner Sports. The versatile broadcaster shares some hilarious Bill Raftery stories, talks about his longevity behind the microphone, discusses whether doing Nets games for 25 years has worn him down and offers advice to young broadcasters. Eagle also weighs in on Turner Sports possibly replacing Marv Albert with Brian Anderson, reminisces about his days working with Mike and the Mad Dog, reveals the two opportunities he was given by the Howard Stern Show and talks about his hatred for condiments and never having a salad.
