Find out how managers and owners make the decisions that affect your favorite sports teams. When is it time to trade a player? Who is worth 30 million dollars a year and why? What can be done when a player or a coach says or does something that sparks controversy—how can you turn that behavior around? Scott Rosner, leader of the Wharton Sports Business Initiative, and Kenneth Shropshire take you behind the scenes of sports business on SiriusXM 111 every Tuesday at 4PM EST.

The Wharton Sports Business Show is also on iTunes!
