It’s a new ESPN podcast with the unlikely name of The Woj Pod — unlikely, that is, until you realize it’s a take on the name of NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski. Launching July 1 as a weekly offering, it will publish with more frequency around major events on the NBA calendar.
“ESPN is committed to our podcast business, and as an exclamation point on that, we’re thrilled to have the Woj Pod in-house,” said Tom Ricks, ESPN VP of Digital Strategy and Marketing within ESPN Audio. “Based on Woj’s unrivaled reputation, his connections in the league, coupled with ESPN’s ability to present this content in unique ways, we look forward to continuing to serve basketball fans in the podcast space.”
Wojnarowski added, “I am excited and eager to launch The Woj Pod on the ESPN platforms. We will continue to sit down with many of the NBA’s biggest stars and most influential decision-makers, and we will also add elements framed around high-volume news cycles. ESPN will help bring an entirely new and fresh dynamic to the show.”
