"Fantasy leagues continue to drive a ton of interest in the games for football fans and there is a hunger for information." said THE CONTENT FACTORY's CEO JIMMY DE CASTRO. "There is no better brand with which to align ourselves than HUB's PRO FOOTBALL WEEKLY when it comes to information, expertise and insight for the fan."
"I've always wanted to expand the appeal of our show to the fans of fantasy football and this partnership with THE CONTENT FACTORY makes that happen," said ARKUSH. "JIMMY has a vision for this arena that makes it exciting. We'll have more to announce as we continue to develop content together."
WSCR PD MITCH ROSEN said, "Our listeners are passionate about fantasy football and we are delighted to be the flagship for this exciting new show."
And SYNDICATION NETWORKS CEO CHRIS WITTING added, "We look forward to working with JIMMY and THE CONTENT FACTORY on this great addition to the PRO FOOTBALL WEEKLY portfolio of radio content."
