The summer book numbers are in for the nation’s capital, and has been the case most times, 106.7 The Fan turned in a solid quarterly performance. For the quarter, Washington D.C.’s sports radio leader finished 7th with a 5.0 share with Men 25-54. That was slightly down year over year from 6th and a 5.3 share. All numbers included in this article represent the station’s combined Over The Air ratings and Streaming performance.

Looking at the weekday shows, the Sports Junkies recorded the highest ranking on the station for the book. The Junkies were 5th in morning drive with a 5.3 share. The popular morning team also improved their year over year performance, gaining eight tenths of a point and three positions from 2020.

Turning to middays, Brian Mitchell and JP Finlay delivered a station best share of 5.8 for the quarter. That placed them 7th for the book between the hours of 10a-2p. Middays in 2020 were occupied by Grant and Danny (they’ve since moved to afternoons) and rated and ranked higher with a 6.4 and 4th place finish. With this being BMitch and Finlay’s first summer book, they now have something to measure themselves against next year.

Wrapping up in afternoons, Grant Paulsen and Danny Rouhier finished the quarter in 10th with a 4.4 share. It was their first summer book in PM drive so comparisons to last year aren’t an apples to apples comparison. Nonetheless, the station in 2020 produced a 4.8 and 6th place finish courtesy of Chad Dukes.

Team 980 is still a work in progress, so we’ll have to wait until the Fall to see where that brand starts to settle in. With the Washington Football Team back on the field, not to mention connected to an NFL investigation, and the Capitals and Wizards recently starting their 2021-2022 campaigns, look for D.C.’s numbers to grow in the fall.

Though there’s still some time before a finished products reaches bookshelves, but ESPN’s Paul Finebaum is reportedly set to get a nice six-figure advance by Penguin Press.

According to John Ourand of Sports Business Journal, Finebaum will make $700,000 plus royalties for the deep dive into the rivalry between the two SEC head coaches.

Back in the spring things came to a head between Alabama’s Nick Saban and Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher, as the two engaged in a verbal spat in separate press conferences over name, image and likeness.

Saban said Fisher and his staff utilized NIL and “bought every player” in the Aggies’ spring 2022 recruiting class.

Things got so heated and drew so many headlines that SEC commissioner Greg Sankey had to step in and try to get the former colleagues to cool it.

Finebaum is teaming up with Alabama beat reporter John Talty to write the book.

If you’re serious about Fantasy Football, the Sports Gambling Podcast Network is bringing back a tradition you’ll want to pay attention to. 

For the second year in a row, Ryan Kramer will draft 24 different teams over the course of a 24 hour marathon that will be streamed across multiple video platforms. 

“Fortunately, the analytics research is done so I can focus now on news coming out of the camps to sharpen my views and deliver the well-reasoned selections that people need to get an edge in their drafting,” Kramer said in a press release. “It’s a bit of an audacious undertaking, but the growing phenomenon of Fantasy Football deserves this level of commitment and our SGPN audiences always respond.” 

The event begins at 3 pm on Tuesday and is dubbed “Draft Day 2.0”. All of the content will originate from the Sports Gambling Podcast Network’s studios in Los Angeles. 

The marathon will also be a fundraiser. The network is using GoFundMe to raise funds for a colleague named Darryl injured in a motorcycle accident earlier this year. A portion of proceeds generated from the sale of Sports Gambling Podcast Network branded apperal will also go to the effort.
