QUICK HITS: In a wide ranging interview with Broadcasting & Cable Editor Ben Grossman, Skipper spoke of the likelihood that a digital media company will make a big bet on sports, and said, "I don't think people are going to YouTube to watch the Yankees any time soon. ...I don't think Facebook or Google will be buying sports rights." On losing the World Cup to Fox Sports, Skipper quipped, "When it comes around in '18 and we don't have it, it will be painful."
