Episode 58: Joe Ovies, 99.9 FM The Fan in Raleigh, NC (Will driverless cars disrupt the radio business?)



This podcast was inspired by a Richard Deitsch mailbag column on The Athletic (https://theathletic.com/365498/2018/05/23/media-mailbag-why-al-michaels-will-stick-around-the-future-of-espns-michael-smith-world-cup-in-4k-and-more/) that included a great question from Gil Gross in NY on whether young people thinking of getting into radio should be worried about driverless cars.

Technology disrupting businesses is always interesting so it was great to talk to Joe Ovies who makes his living doing radio on 99.9 FM The Fan in Raleigh, NC on the Adam & Joe show Mondays-Fridays from 3:00-7:00 p.m. I enjoyed the conversation and found Joe’s answers fascinating and really appreciated him being so candid.

We also talked a little NFL/national anthem and about Shalini Ramachandran’s great story on ESPN:  (https://www.wsj.com/articles/how-a-weakened-espn-became-consumed-by-politics-1527176425?mod=searchresults&page=1&pos=1)
