The Business of Sports Speculation

  • Trey Wingo and Kevin Frazier are asking the big 'what if' questions on their podcast 'Alternate Routes.'
  • Wingo and Frazier join 'Front Office Sports Today' to tell us why now was the right time to make the move.
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Former ‘SportsCenter’ anchors Trey Wingo and Kevin Frazier recently launched a new show that asks the big ‘what if’ questions from sports history. Billed as a ‘leap into the multiverse,’ their podcast ‘Alternate Routes’ is the latest example of talent leaping from legacy media brands into the great unknown of the always-on, streaming future. Wingo and Frazier join the show to tell us why now was the right time to make the move.

Plus, through its Public Investment Fund, Saudi Arabia has presented a $2 billion proposal to unite the ATP and WTA. We asked women’s world No. 5 player Jessica Pegula whether this is a good idea.
