Episode 350 of the "Sports Illustrated Media Podcast" hosted by Jimmy Traina features an interview with versatile play-by-play man, Ian Eagle. The CBS and Turner Sports broadcaster talks about the possibility of becoming Turner's lead NBA voice now that the job is open thanks to Marv Albert's retirement. Would Eagle have any scheduling issues if he got the gig since he also calls Brooklyn Nets games locally in New York and the NFL on CBS? Eagle also reveals whether the play-by-play job for "Thursday Night Football" on Amazon appeals to him. Eagle also shares a tremendous story about Tom Brady shaming him for a poor eating and drinking decision, does spot-on imitations of Bill Raftery and Chris "Mad Dog" Russo, comes clean about being addicted to TikTok and clears up some of his controversial food habits.
Following the interview with Eagle, Sal Licata from WFAN and SNY joins the podcast for the weekly "Traina Thoughts" segment, during which we discuss the upcoming season of "Hard Knocks," Netflix's documentary on the "Malice at the Palace," Gus Johnson returning to the NFL and more.
