The Winter Olympics are underway and from the IBC to across the many venues, SVG is on the scene covering all of the video production and tech happenings in PyeongChang, South Korea.
Through to the Closing Ceremonies, SVG will bring you special episodes of The SVG Podcast as our Executive Director Ken Kerschbaumer and Director of Digital Brandon Costa give you the inside scoop on all of the innovation they are seeing at the Olympics.
In addition, each episode will feature an in-depth interview with a major executive or intriguing personality that dissects their team's efforts and offers their opinions on larger trends facing the sports media industry.
In today's episode of the show, Ken and Brandon discuss their first impressions of the PyeongChang Games and break down how Eurosport - as the new player on the block - is bringing a fresh perspective to covering an Olympics.
Brandon also sits down with Lyndsay Signor, Senior Director of Consumer Engagement for NBC Sports to discuss everything going on behind-the-scenes with the NBC Olympics social media team, how she's adjusting to recent changes made to a couple of key social media platforms, and what content is bringing NBC success with social audiences through the early parts of these Games.
