Former NBA star Shaquille O’Neal is “getting bigger” at PodcastOne, where he currently hosts The BIG Podcast with Shaq. While establishing greater visibility for his own podcast, O’Neal will also take part in the promotion and curation of the sports network’s programming slate.
“I have a blast doing my podcast every week,” said O’Neal. “And I always like to have my hand in the hottest businesses. Podcasting continues to heat up and now is the time for me to take the next step into the space – who better to do it with than PodcastOne, who has lead the way in podcasting since its inception? They have a phenomenal vision for the sports community. So here I am. The general of PodcastOne Sportsnet.”
PodcastOne Chairman and CEO Norman Pattiz expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership: “As someone who wears one of Shaq’s championship rings on my finger, I know, firsthand, of his passion for success. There is no one bigger – in size or spirit. Shaq will stand for everything PodcastOne Sportsnet is – quality, sports IQ, big fun, and a connection to fans everywhere.”
