The new podcast, called The Vertical Podcast with JJ Redick, features L.A. Clippers guard J.J. Redick. It’s part of The Vertical Podcast with Woj, a series with Yahoo! Sports. NBA reporter Adrian Wojnarowski, will publish new episodes each Tuesday, along with regular breaking news reports throughout the year. Redick will be the first active NBA athlete to host a regular podcast.
Reddick said, “I am a big consumer of audio content, and think that this will give fans a deeper dive into the lifestyle and the personalities not just of the NBA, but of other athletes, entertainers, and business leaders who have had an influence on my life and career. There will be something here for everyone, and I’m looking forward to getting into the project.”
DGital Media Chief Content Office Chris Corcoran said, “Fans are always clamoring for unique content, we don’t think there can be more of a unique offering than a weekly look into the goings-on of an NBA season through the eyes and words of one of its more seasoned veterans, the LA Clippers’ J.J. Redick. The Vertical Podcast with JJ Redick won’t just be about basketball, it will give fans a great listen into the storytelling narrative of an elite athlete living and playing in Los Angeles, whose background appeals to such a wide audience.”
The podcast can be found on iTunes, Stitcher, and the TuneIn audio platform.
