SVG PLAY: From Announcers to Editors, Regional Sports Network Executives Discuss Embracing Remote Workflows and the Return to the Facility
In a panel discussion from the SVG RSN Summit, leaders from YES Network, Bally Sports, Spectrum SportsNet, and Marquee Sports Network tackle the pressing issues
SVG’s RSN Summit brought regional sports network leaders and content creators together in Chicago on June 29 and 30 to network and exchange ideas about the pertinent issues facing the regional sports sector as the business undergoes seismic change on multiple fronts. These leaders addressed how RSNs are being challenged to produce more events and content at lower costs while also navigating new pandemic-era realities and building beyond the linear-distribution model.
In the midst of the pandemic, regional sports networks were forced to shift production almost entirely to remote operation — from announcers calling games off monitors to editors creating content from their homes. Although staffers have gradually returned to onsite broadcast, many RSNs have opted to keep some crew and on-air talent at home.
In this panel discussion from the SVG RSN Summit, RSN executives from across the country explain what will stay remote and what will return to the facility as the industry moves forward. Also, and perhaps most importantly, what new technologies/workflows will be required to maintain high-quality programming and network operations in the future?
