Marchand & Ourand podcast: The latest on Al Michaels' next move

On the latest "Sports Media Podcast," SBJ's John Ourand and the N.Y. Post's Andrew Marchand discuss the news that ESPN may pursue Al Michaels for "Monday Night Football," even as he is way down the negotiation road with Amazon's "Thursday Night Football" package. Michaels is slated to call the Super Bowl for NBC in less than three weeks, and then the NFL TV hot stove will crank up. Fox' Troy Aikman and former Saints coach Sean Payton are possibly on the move. Sean McVay, who may stay on as the Rams' coach, is a name that is high on TV executives' list. The guys also get into how Netflix’ earnings call could impact Disney's plans for ESPN. Plus, they talk about the Australian Open, the USFL and Marchand's Baseball HOF vote. The "Calls of the Week" ranks all the final calls from last-second NFL playoff games. The "Who's Up" and "Who's Down" awards have a football feel, as well.
