DraftKings has signed former Notre Dame football player and television personality, Mike Golic Jr, to launch a new podcast called GoJo.
Debuting on May 2, GoJo will see Golic Jr partner with former teammate and friend, Brandon Newman, for an hour-long daily video podcast discussing topics across sports and culture.
“When I look at the future of sports media, joining DraftKings was an easy decision for me,” Golic Jr commented on the new podcast.
“As someone who is passionate about creating content, having the freedom to develop original programming is the perfect opportunity at the perfect time. I’m excited to partner with Brandon as we take our individual and shared experiences as former teammates to the airwaves.”
Airing Monday through Friday on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, the iHeartRadio app, and everywhere podcasts are available, Golic and Newman will examine the week’s biggest games alongside regular guests and sports and media personalities.
Stacie McCollum, Vice President of Programming at DraftKings, added: “Mike’s addition to the media family is another example of DraftKings partnering with high profile talent and trusted personalities across sports media.
“Leveraging his strong social currency, he and Brandon will tackle subjects that represent the broader interests and hobbies of today’s sports fan.”
Earlier this month, DraftKings added baseball expert and personality Jared Carrabis to its talent roster to bolster its MLB coverage.
