I’m working on two posts that is providing some challenges for me. So while I’m hammering them out, here are a couple of news and sports links that raised a few eyebrows, if anyone noticed.
- Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports that the Baltimore Orioles are returning to powerhouse WBAL-AM 1090 radio in Baltimore after four years on the FM side (105.7 The Fan). Add that to the St. Louis Cardinals’ return to KMOX-AM 1120. Does these moves signal that major leagues teams are returning to stronger AM stations that has helped their brand and popularity over the decades?
- Lately, I’ve been reading Silicon Prairie News, a website that covers entrepreneurship and the new creative class in the “Silicon Prairie” (Omaha and Des Moines). A new addition to SPN has been their Prairiecast shows, hosted by Geoff Wood and Andy Brudtkuhl. This week, Alexander Grgurich of Foundry Coworking and Michael Ferrari of Smarty Pig were the guests. If you want to know more about entrepreneurship and start-ups, SPN is the go-to site.
- Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch isn’t shy when it comes to offering his opinion. And his opinion is that the NFL has a better Hall of Fame selection process than Major League Baseball, and it’s not even close, sans a few hangups.
- In Huffington Post, Tulane law professor Gabe Hoffman writes an in-depth look at the legal issues behind the possible NFL vs. NFLPA negotiations as both sides try to come up with a new collective bargaining agreement before March 4th.
Speaking of Huff Post…
- Heidi Mannetter offers a short thought about Arianna Huffington picking up a cool $315 million from AOL, in return for AOL to acquire Huff Post.
As if Arianna needed the money. She was already loaded before she created the vastly large news aggregate site.
That’s it for now, but enjoy Gusto’s viral commercial that had everyone talking prior to opening.
