Ep. 4: FSI Pacers Producer Max Leinwand

A new episode of the Vigilant Sports Pacers Podcast is here just in time for the season opener — Wednesday night in Toronto.

Max Leinwand is the new producer for FSI's broadcasts of Pacers games.

Max Leinwand is the new producer for FSI’s broadcasts of Pacers games.

You’ll be watching on FOX Sports Indiana, who plans to televise all 82 regular season games for the first time ever. You know Chris Denari (10th), Quinn Buckner (17th), and Jeremiah Johnson (2nd), but you don’t know Max Leinwand. Why would you — he’s new to town!

You appreciate the work they all do on game broadcasts — one of the best in the league, in my opinion — and on this podcast you’ll hear Leinwand’s story and how he joined the broadcast team.

Leinwand, who has been employed by FOX Sports Midwest since September of 2005, is the new producer for Pacers broadcasts which means it is his job to cover and share the Pacers’ story all season long.

I spoke with Leinwand Tuesday before he met the team at the airport for Game No. 1.

Topics Discussed:

  • His career path from New Jersey to St. Louis
  • How he has a history of overseeing Pacers broadcasts for FSI
  • FOX’s priorities for game broadcasts
  • New features to be used on air
  • The role of a producer
  • What FSI has in the works for Hickory nights
  • How they plan to incorporate analytics
