Sports betting network VSiN has confirmed an expanded lineup, new shows and additional talent as it heads into what it described as the “most anticipated sports betting season in years”.
Beginning this fall, the 24/7 sports betting network will begin broadcasting nearly 100 live linear hours each week, adding several new shows and top industry talent.
Further strengthening its lineup, VSiN is adding Tim Murray, former host of NBC Sports’ The Daily Line; former professional football player and sports broadcaster, Mike Pritchard; journalist and $1m Super Contest winner, James Salinas; and Danielle Alvari, from the NFL Network.
Pritchard and Salinas will team up to co-host Betting Across America, a new show produced in collaboration with BetMGM, while Murray will help anchor weekend coverage by joining the Betting Across America broadcast team and co-hosting VSiN’s new THE Pre-game Show. Alvari joins the My Guys in the Desert broadcast team. Additionally, the network is bolstering its entire team with key additions to its content and production teams.
Brian Musburger, VSiN founder and CEO, explained: “VSiN has experienced incredible growth over the past 18 months, significantly expanding distribution, advertising sales, and industry partnerships, while enhancing our product across channels.
“We’re excited to build on that momentum by launching new shows and introducing new talent. This new programming will allow us to cover sportsbooks around the country and provide unique and valuable insights to our growing audience of sports bettors.”
Talking about the Betting Across America collaboration with BetMGM, Musburger added: “The mission of VSiN has always been to deliver the most credible information and odds on sporting events and to allow sports bettors to make more informed wagering decisions.
“We’re thrilled to partner with this industry giant to provide unprecedented insight into BetMGM Sportsbooks across the country and deliver access to new levels of data to our audience.”
Matt Prevost, BetMGM’s Chief Marketing Officer, commented: “VSiN has been a great media partner for BetMGM and we look forward to continuing to work with the VSiN team to produce engaging sports betting related content.
“By giving VSiN unprecedented access to BetMGM Sportsbooks, there will be no shortage of interesting story lines and excellent opportunities for betting enthusiasts and sports fans to get an inside peek.”
