DGital MEDIA has launched a new podcast hosted by former NFL wide receiver CHAD "OCHOCINCO" JOHNSON and center and NFL NETWORK commentator JAMIE DUKES. "OCHOCINCO AND DUKES" will post weekly on TUESDAYS.
“We are pleased to add CHAD and JAMIE to our growing list of digital audio storytellers in the fast-growing engagement audio in demand category,” said Chief Content Officer CHRIS CORCORAN. “CHAD’s cross-generational appeal, his knowledge of the space and his ability to engage and interact with both fans and celebrities will make him a ‘must-listen,’ and Jamie’s expertise and calming influence will give the podcast a great balance. They fit our growing business model really well and we are looking forward to listening in, as will thousands of others as the show grows in stature.”
“I am really excited to be working with JAMIE on this podcast. It is a great way for us both to engage and have fun with our fans,” said JOHNSON, the former CINCINNATI BENGALS Pro Bowl receiver who legally changed his name to OCHOCINCO for a time so that the word would appear on his jersey above his number, 85. “Podcasts are a fast-growing platform, and the people at DGital MEDIA will do a great job. JAMIE and I have some really fun things in store for the listeners and we won't be talking about just football, I promise you that!"
