Nike takes home Emmy for Colin Kaepernick ad campaign

Posted: Updated:

The head of the FAA will meet with Boeing officials this week to fly a newly configured 737 Max flight simulator. It's all part of the ramp-up ahead of a test flight of the reconfigured plane grounded since March, and critical before the Max earns recertification. Meanwhile, an international panel of air safety regulators will criticize the U.S. approval process for the Max, according to the Wall Street Journal.

An Emmy was awarded to Nike's ad campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick. The "Dream Crazy" ad campaign's win is Nike's first since 2002. The Emmy might be one of the few fruits of the Nike collaboration though -- to date, Nike has released just two products related to Kaepernick, both reportedly produced in low volumes and sold out quickly.

Some of the biggest names in eSports will launch "Venn," a brand-new network in 2020. The network has raised $17 million from investors connected to video game developers like Fortnite's Epic Games and Overwatch's Blizzard. The network expects to have 55 hours of original programming per week, including gamer streams, talk shows and live events. It will broadcast on Twitch, YouTube and other mediums.
