DALE EARNHARDT JR. and JR MOTORSPORTS are launching a podcast network, "DIRTY MO RADIO." The podcasts, based at EARNHARDT's DALEJR.COM, will be available there and through iTunes starting MONDAY (2/18) with the first weekly "DALE JR. DOWNLOAD" show, co-hosted by TAYLOR ZARZOUR and available MONDAYS through the NASCAR season. More shows are planned for the network.
"DIRTY MO RADIO's programming will cover a wide range of topics and perspectives,” said JR MOTORSPORTS GM KELLEY EARNHARDT MILLER. “Racing is the biggest part of DALE’s life, but it’s not the only part. We hope to create programming not just about DALE but about his interests, such as music, sports, and NASCAR history.”
“On MONDAYS, we do the same thing at the shop that all race fans do – talk about the weekend’s races,” said EARNHARDT MILLER. “It’s the first day of the work week, so we dissect what was good, what was bad, and how our favorite drivers fared. That is essentially what you can expect on THE DALE JR. DOWNLOAD. We have a lot of different programming ideas for DIRTY MO RADIO, but to launch us off, we felt the first podcast has to be devoted to DALE’s on-track activity, because that’s what fans care about most.”
