About the Book

Game On tells the story of how and why the sports media industry grew to become one of the most important and profitable components of the global entertainment landscape.

Praise

“Where sports media is heading—and where it’s been—is a vexing and complex question that impacts every sports fan. Those charged with broadcasting and chronicling the games we love are part of a multibillion-dollar business—and David Bockino has thrown himself into an examination of this ever-evolving world with passion and an engaging writing style. . . . Game On will help educate you as a sports consumer.”—Richard Deitsch, writer for The Athletic and host of the Sports Media podcast

“An excellent, comprehensive exploration into the evolution of sports media that takes the reader to all corners of the globe, bringing to life an impressive review of sports fan content consumption from the environs of Times Square in the twentieth century to the modern social media square of the twenty-first.”—Peter Leimbach, senior vice president at Fox Sports Research

Game On is an introspective look at the vastly changing landscape of sports media. Game On outlines what brought the industry to where it is today and explains to the reader why important moments such as the rise of ESPN, the emergence of fantasy sports, and the proliferation of special telecasts drew fan bases and increased sports’ presence in everyday society. It’s a fascinating read for any sports lover.”—Emmanuel Morgan, sports reporter for the New York Times
