USA Today and MLB Launch ‘Sports on Earth’

USA Today and MLB’s Advanced Media team, have formerly announced the sports venture we’ve been hearing about for the past few months. Starting in late August, “Sports on Earth,” will bring readers “great sports writing from some of the most respected voices in the industry,” according to a release.

The name? Well, we’re not sold on it. The names behind Sports on Earth? Much, much easier to support. Steve Madden, the former Rodale digital expert is the general manager, and Sports Illustrated veteran Larry Burke is the editor-in-chief. Joe Posnanski, another talented SI vet, will be a full-time contributor, as will Gwen Knapp, Tommy Tomlinson and Shaun Powell. New York’s Will Leitch, another FishbowlNY favorite, will also showcase his work on Sports on Earth from time to time.

The first peek we get at Sports on Earth (the site has a fancy intro but not much else as of now) will be Olympic coverage, which will be available from July 27 to August 12.

Not even the seventh snow storm of the season (we’re begging for mercy — enough!) could keep the faithful away from Michael’s today. There were power gals aplenty and media mavens galore who braved the elements to make it to 55th Street. We marvel at your stamina. (Is it me or do all successful women over a certain age in this city eventually wind up with the identical shade of blonde?)

Here’s the rundown on today’s crowd:

1. Literary agent Esther Newberg, presiding over a table of wonder women  including bestselling crime novelist Linda Fairstein, author and ABC News correspondent Lynn Sherr, CBS’ Lesley Stahl, and the Honorable Kimba Woods.

2. Fashionista Fern Mallis (We miss you on The Fashion Show!), whose consulting business is thriving, and a stylish gent we didn’t get to meet.

3. Hudson News’ James Cohen.

4. 2 Degrees Ventures’ Mitch Kanner.
