TheStreet.com’s Chris Ciaccia talks about how the proposed $49 billion big merger between AT&T and DirecTV is not about subscribers, free cash flow, dividend coverage or any other story you may read this morning. It’s about football. More specifically, it’s about the National Football League, which has become a television ratings powerhouse under Commissioner Roger Goodell.
Chris Ciaccia joined TheStreet as a technology reporter in November 2011. Prior to TheStreet, Chris covered markets for Benzinga.com and also worked as an analyst at GMAC and at Laurus Capital Management. Chris has a bachelor’s degree in finance from Seton Hall University.
