PSPN: Connecting athletes with fans

We were honored to have Hall of Famer and Greenbay Packers great Willie Wood stop by the NBC4 Studios. Willie came with Bob Schmidt founder of the Professional Sports Players Network or PSPN. PSPN launches next weekend at the Collectors Showcase of America at the Dulles Expo Center.

PSPN is a new network that gives athletes and legends a platform to build their brand and connect with fans. It also allows sports heroes to bring issues to light- like the concussion controversy.

Bob Schmidt, who is the founder of the Lombardi Foundation and a co-founder of CSPAN says PSPN will eventually be a television network with talk shows and sports news. For more email info@pspn.tv

Bruce caught up with John Riggins and Lavar Arrington… as well as some locals  on the heels of hearing the news. I personally think this is a power move and suspect McNabb will probably be her for about two years. Those who criticize the fact he’s 34… 34?!?  people… I say take a look at Favre and Kurt Warner. Mcnabb can roll out of bed and throw a decent game, the man is good, you can’t debate it. As for our friend Jason Campbell.. haven’t heard from him yet but suspect that it’s a sensitive issue. There’s one thing I know about Jason though and it’s he’s a good hearted person that will probablly look at this as an opportunity to grow even more. .
