Two of the big media companies are reporting earnings this week. The Walt Disney Co. reports after the close of the bell today and 21st Century Fox's earnings report is expected tomorrow . That means plenty of talk about Disney’s recent box office successes and its pending acquisition of Fox’s entertainment assets. But next week, the focus will shift to TV. It’s upfront season, when broadcasters sell most of their commercial slots for the fall season and the coming year.

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
