The 2019 BSM Summit in Los Angeles already featured strong representation from the sports media industry’s top talent and executives, but BSM President Jason Barrett isn’t finished adding high caliber guest speakers to the schedule.
Officially announced today, BSM is thrilled to add ESPN Radio Senior Director of Programming Justin Craig, Good Karma Broadcasting’s VP of Content and SiriusXM Mad Dog Radio morning host Evan Cohen, Amplifi Media CEO Steven Goldstein, CAA Sports agent Matthew Kramer, and the nation’s leading sports voiceover artist Jim Cutler to this year’s event. All five industry professionals will be part of on-stage conversations in L.A. on February 21-22, 2019 at the Grammy Museum. Other speakers will be announced soon, so stay tuned to the BSM website for details.
The annual two day sports conference created and organized by BSM founder Jason Barrett features a mixture of sports executives, radio and television professionals, agents, on-air talent, digital and production specialists, affiliate representatives, and salespeople. The event is open to all media members, but closed to the public. The goal of the BSM Summit is to educate broadcasters on current and future industry trends, share success stories and best practices, analyze existing issues and deliver solutions, increase business relationships, and elevate the conversation and profile of the sports media industry and its members.
Prior to today’s announcement, BSM previously revealed popular personalities Eric Bischoff, Colin Cowherd, Jason Whitlock, and Jorge Sedano would participate in this year’s show. Executives involved in the event include Bruce Gilbert of Westwood One, Mike Thomas of Beasley Broadcasting, Scott Shapiro and Don Martin of iHeart and Premiere Networks, Brian Musburger of VSiN, and Chad Millman of the Action Network. BSM will also honor Emmis CEO Jeff Smulyan, and long-time sports radio personality Tony Bruno by introducing awards in their honor.
