“My personal thing is we probably fall back on that, ‘Oh they’ve probably seen that’ too much. There’s a reason why people are still watching out network, there’s a reason why so many regional networks have popped up. People want their highlights. We’re going to tell the whole story or the main story, and that’s harder to get on your phone.”
