ESPN uses all of its media outlets (TV stations, radio stations, website, etc.) to cover the same stories driving the impression that they are covering what the viewers want them to cover. There is no reason every single media outlet they own needed to cover Danica Patrick winning the pole for Daytona at the length they did.
If you listen to ESPN radio in the morning, at every update they give they will list EVERY NBA score from the previous evening and NO NHL scores. You cannot tell me that there is more demand nationally for the score and/or highlights of Milwaukee vs Charlotte then ANY coverage of the NHL.
