What do you think this SI Media Podcast: Mike Tirco and Steve Kornacki | Sports Illustrated video?
Episode 324 of the Sports Illustrated Media Podcast features two interviews. First up is Mike Tirico from NBC Sports. Tirico talks about still having a heavy workload through the pandemic, how hard it is to call blowouts, the NFL blocking him from calling “Thursday Night Football” when he left ESPN, succeeding Al Michaels on “Sunday Night Football” and his relationship with Al, whether NFL play-by-play broadcasters are too easy on referees and much more.
Kornacki discusses his appearance on NBC’s “Football Night in America,” where he broke down the NFL playoff picture, how much prep he had to do for the gig, the most difficult part of working Election Night, whether sports or politics is more tribal, whether he owns a pair of jeans and if he has a rivalry with John King.
