Mike Finley (@MikeFinley) - CEO of Boingo (@Boingo) joins us to discuss connectivity at sports venues, 5G and his role as CEO of Boingo. Boingo helps the world stay connected to the people and things they love. They build Wi-Fi, cellular and small cell networks at big venues like Soldier Field in Chicago, Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City, Phillips Arena in Atlanta and the Hollywood Bowl. Then Boingo monetizes those networks with a number of unique products and services. Nearly 80% of consumers use their phones at a sporting event for posting on social media, watching highlights, ordering food or merchandise or soon to place a bet on a game.
Boingo is our partner on our Sports Business Radio Road Show series as well.
Sports Business Radio Host Brian Berger also weighs in with his thoughts on the NBA's partnership with China and the fallout that has come from Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey's tweet and Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron's James' recent comments about Morey and China.
