Tonight at 9:30pm, Maximum Media (parent of Her.ie and JOE.ie) will take a step in the right direction for online content broadcasting and air their new show “SportsJOE Live”. The show will be hosted by Colm Parkinson and Damian Clark and is set to be “A League of Their Own” meets “The Footy Show”. Ireland, Munster and Lions legend Ronan O’Gara is set to join the show which will air on JOE.ie and SportsJOE Facebook pages and via Periscope on @JOEdotie and @SportsJoedotie’s Twitter pages.
Interestingly, Facebook is currently developing a feature that will spotlight original shows and other exclusive long-form content, and they have recently started to pitch for long-form content themselves. It seems that Maximum Media are doing what they do best – staying ahead of the game!
This show will be viewed by an audience of thousands across numerous devices live, allowing for sports fanatics to “Engage” (had to be done!) in real-time and be part of the conversation.
The team here at Engager are very excited about these steps. This allows for direct and live audience feedback on content. Engager will monitor viewership ratings, audience sentiment and demographics on this broadcast. Access to this data will help shape the content of tomorrow and secure sponsorships for future broadcasts.
Stay tuned for our audience insights post-broadcast!!
