McManus and Fox Sports Media Group co-President and co-COO Randy Freer were in agreement about the rising importance and value of sports on TV and defended the quantity of content, along with the cost to consumers. Freer: “In the marketplace, big events matter more than ever. Over the last decade, sports continues to hold its value and be something that consumers and advertisers love.” On subscriber fees, Freer said, “We don’t do a good enough job of touting the value of your pay-TV bill.” McManus replied, “It’s a pretty darn good value for what you’re getting on your cable bill.”
