NBA columnist ADRIAN WOJNAROWSKI's YAHOO! SPORTS site THE VERTICAL, for which WOJNAROWSKI hosts a podcast, will add a weekly podcast with LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS guard J.J. REDICK. "THE VERTICAL PODCAST WITH J.J. REDICK" will, like "THE VERTICAL PODCAST WITH WOJ," be distributed via DGital MEDIA.
WOJNAROWSKI announced REDICK's addition while guesting on FS1's "GARBAGE TIME WITH KATIE NOLAN" podcast. THE VERTICAL website launches FRIDAY (1/29) at YAHOO!
“Fans are always clamoring for unique content, we don’t think there can be more of a unique offering than a weekly look into the goings-on of an NBA season through the eyes and words of one of its more seasoned veterans, the LA CLIPPERS' J.J. REDICK ,” said DGital MEDIA Chief Content Officer CHRIS CORCORAN. “’THE VERTICAL PODCAST WITH J.J. REDICk won’t just be about basketball; it will give fans a great listen into the storytelling narrative of an elite athlete living and playing in LOS ANGELES, whose background appeals to such a wide audience.”
“I am a big consumer of audio content, and think that this will give fans a deeper dive into the lifestyle and the personalities not just of the NBA, but of other athletes, entertainers and business leaders who have had an influence on my life and career,” added REDICK. “There will be something here for everyone, and I’m looking forward to getting into the project.”
