Join us November 27th at 6pm as the Sports and Tech Meetup presents an all-star panel discussing: “The Evolution of Sports Media.” Our panel of entrepreneurs, executives, investors, and journalists will discuss how technology and the natural disruption of markets are fundamentally changing how sports are presented and covered. Our panel will weigh in on how these changes affect a variety of parties from old and new media businesses to fans to leagues to startups and what new big innovations and opportunities lay ahead. Q&A will follow.
