WCOS at 10; SBJ wins honor
Published March 28, 2011, Page 40
• Spend some time with this week’s In-Depth, which looks back at the 10 years of World Congress of Sports. In-Depth Editor David Bourne put together a fantastic retrospective on the personalities and issues discussed during the last decade. Let’s see, in 2004, concern over big events migrating to cable had many fearful that events and properties would struggle growing their audience. Sound familiar? It should. The debate lives on, but the early success of CBS/Turner with the NCAA tournament may bolster cable advocates who stress that cable networks can deliver audiences around the big events just fine.
•I am proud to recognize the editorial staff of SportsBusiness Journal, which was honored by the Society of American Business Editors and Writers with one of its top awards, General Excellence in the print weeklies/biweeklies category. This is the second year in a row that SportsBusiness Journal has won SABEW’s General Excellence award. I am lucky to work every day with these smart and talented people, and they deserve all the credit for this honor. I hope you’ll join me in congratulating them.
