In advance of PBS airing Ken Burns’ The Tenth Inning, Maury Brown, the founder and president of the Business of Sports Network, which includes BizofBaseball.com, is scheduled to appear on the Nightly Business Report (check local listings for PBS) both tonight and Weds.
The Tenth Inning focuses heavily on the labor issues such as steroids and the ’94 strike that baseball faced after Burns released the 9-part Baseball. The Tenth Inning airs in two 2-hour segments with the “top” of the Tenth Inning airing tonight and the “bottom” of the Tenth Inning airing tomorrow.
Brown was interviewed about attendance and revenue-sharing matters in MLB.
It should also be noted that Brown was interviewed for a separate segment for the Nightly Business Report regarding a possible lockout in the NFL and how the UFL might benefit. As of this publication it is not known whether that segment will be airing over the course of the next two days or in programming in the future. We will update when information is available.
