Hoffarth on the media: Catching up for 2018

Linsday Amstutz, right, with girls from Mulholland Middle School as they talk about career opportunities in the sports television world.

It’s another way to locate our weekly sports columns, which for now appear in the Southern California News Group editions.
In recent weeks:
* Lindsay Amstutz, the SVP and GM of Fox Sports West/Prime Ticket and Fox Sports San Diego, takes us along for a “seed planting” trip to a middle school in her native San Fernando Valley.
* Any idea why it’s not such a great idea to have Facebook.com streaming MLB games? Take the first one for 2018, for example.
* New ESPN “Sunday Night Baseball” play-by-play Matt Vasgersian has a way of comparing this franchise to how people watch “Saturday Night Live.” … Does it match up?
* Former UCLA Final Four MVP Ed O’Bannon explains more about his new book, “Court Justice,” and his battles with the NCAA.
* How LAFC president Tom Penn put his ESPN NBA gig on hold to create a soccer narrative.
* The NBA has star power in the media world. How did it get there?
* Will you be amazed to see a Super Bowl on Amazon Prime some day? Don’t be.
