One-time sports "super-agent" LEIGH STEINBERG, on the comeback trail with a new book and recertified to represent NFL players, is now hosting a podcast, "LEIGH STEINBERG ON SPORTS," for SPORTS USA. STEINBERG, a model used by CAMERON CROWE for the title role in the TOM CRUISE movie "JERRY MAGUIRE," was one of the most influential figures in sports before his fall into bankruptcy, alcoholism, and legal troubles, but has returned sober and with a new and controversial book, "The Agent: My 40-Year Career Making Deals and Changing the Game."
STEINBERG said, "SPORTS USA is one of the most-respected names in audio. Their relationships with a virtual Who's Who of major athletes, broadcasters and sports organizations make them the perfect partner for us to launch our new show."
SPORTS USA Pres. BOB MOORE added, "LEIGH is an American sports icon and the preeminent sports agent of all time. His experiences over more than 40 years working with America's top athletes will power this exciting weekly show. 'LEIGH STEINBERG ON SPORTS' will cover anything and everything about sports, the personalities involved, and the most important issues of the day."
