I made mention of this really briefly in the links, but I wanted to spell this out a little more here. On March 1, which is tomorrow, SB Nation will be launching its brand-new YouTube channel. Long story short, we've become one of their partners for sports coverage, and we've spent the last several months gearing up by hiring talent, producers and all the things you need to run a video department. We're finally ready to get started tomorrow and we've been posting a lot of teasers for some of the shows you'll see. If you like SBN's voice, both here and elsewhere around the network, you'll love the stuff we're doing. Here's where you subscribe.
A few more details:
- There are teasers for many of the shows involved, but some of our on-air talent includes Bomani Jones (often on Around The Horn, always awesome), Amy K. Nelson (formerly of ESPN), Spencer Hall (who you know from Every Day Should Be Saturday), Matt Ufford and Dan Rubenstein (formerly of Warming Glow, Kissing Suzy Kolber and Solid Verbal) and more. They're really talented people and they're going to produce great stuff.
- There's going to be multiple pieces of content pushed out daily. It's going to be big.
- Finally, and most importantly: the other layer of this is a series of team reports by the individual site bloggers. Essentially, a few of our sites get a camera of their own to use to produce short videos on whatever they see fit. Bullets Forever is one of those sites, though we're basically using one of two camera that were given to the D.C. office as a whole.
- What are we going to do with the cameras? Good question. I'm sure I'll use it sometimes for interviews and other random stuff, but I'm really interested in hearing what you guys might like to see. As long as it doesn't involve using game footage (we don't have the rights), there's a lot of different things we can do. We can turn the John Wall Missed Assist Tracker into video updates potentially, for example. There are lots of ways we can go.
