This week on The Wormcast it's episode 8. I'm taking a deep dive into soccer television production with Shaw Brown. Shaw has been involved in all aspects of soccer production for over 25 years. He might be the only one who's worked in soccer production for ABC, ESPN, FOX, NBC and CBS. Brown has worked 13 Men's and Women's FIFA World Cups, all 25 seasons of MLS, and most recently was the studio producer for CBS Sports HQ's coverage of the UEFA Champions League and Europa League.
We begins with how CBS organized their UEFA presentations in a matter of weeks after obtaining the rights.
