[Neuharth and Kramer]
"Some sports scribes have been around so long, they think they know better than managers or umpires or anyone else what calls should be made."
"We’re hiring much more pronounced voices. We’re hiring people you want to listen to, whose take matters to you. It isn’t just about agate sports scores. It’s going to be about the story behind what’s going on in the event."
-- USAT Publisher Larry Kramer, speaking yesterday at the annual conference of the Media and Entertainment Analysts of New York. Listen to a replay of the event; Kramer's remarks start about 37 minutes into the presentation.
