SI and DGital Media To Partner on Peter King, MMQB Podcasts

DGital Media is making moves once again! After securing a partnership last week with Tony Kornheiser to distribute his podcast in conjunction with WME/IMG, the digital company struck a partnership with Sports Illustrated to bring some of their high profile talent into the podcasting world. The most notable addition is longtime football writer and editor of TheMMQB.com Peter King. All Access was first to report the story.

The new partnership begins today and includes three debut episodes with King chatting with Arizona Cardinals Head Coach Bruce Arians, Denver Broncos General Manager and NFL Hall of Famer John Elway, and Seattle Seahawks Defensive End Michael Bennett. King’s podcast will be titled “The MMQB Podcast with Peter King“. Starting next week, DGital Media will add “The MMQB Podcast with Albert Breer” on Tuesdays, and “The 10 Things MMQB Podcast” with Andy Benoit and Gary Gramling on Mondays.

“Our business is all about storytelling, and there are few better ways to hear the stories of some the greatest influencers of our time than through a podcast,” said King. “To have the ability to sit down for real conversations with the biggest names in football — Bruce Arians, John Elway, Michael Bennett, to begin with — and not just three-minute sound bite-type interviews is very exciting. We’re proud to partner with DGital Media and believe it will be a great addition to what we have established with The MMQB.”

“When it comes to professional football I think Peter King,” said DGital Media Chief Content Officer Chris Corcoran. “There are few in sports and media who have a bigger influence around the field than Peter and we’re excited to bring a new experience to his audience as well as the talented Albert Breer and the rest of the MMQB team. To be able to partner with such talented individuals and have the opportunity to work with the venerated Sports Illustrated brand is truly special.”

“We’ve achieved tremendous growth in the podcast space, and we eagerly anticipate extending the SI Group’s podcasting presence further, beginning today with one of the industry’s biggest talents in Peter King and the MMQB,” said Sports Illustrated Group Editorial Director Chris Stone. “We will continue to build around our roster of award-winning journalists as we experiment with new forms of setting and leading the sports conversation and work with our new partners at DGital MEDIA to deliver a premium audio experience across the board.”

The United States has been eliminated from the 2022 World Cup, and FOX Sports Radio host Doug Gottlieb believes that will return the sport back to its usual place inside the sports media landscape.

“I’m sure people in the soccer world are still talking about the World Cup,” Gottlieb said on his In The Bonus podcast Monday. “But zero people I know in real life are talking about the World Cup today.

“You can tell me how big soccer is in the world — and I’m not gonna dispute it — and you can tell me we’re doing better in the world than we’ve ever done — and I’m not gonna dispute it, it’s fine — but the fact is that as soon as that match was over we went from a couple of hours of soccer guy, or writer guy who’s really a soccer guy at heart, talking about should we change coaches, tactics, players, or whatever, and then it’s over. I don’t know who won and I don’t care.”

Gottlieb later added that soccer has been “the sport of the future” for his entire life, but added that college basketball is going on right now, and it isn’t on the national sports radar, either.

94WIP afternoon host Jon Marks has revealed he is working without a contract.

A report from CrossingBroad.com claims Marks mentioned the development on the air two weeks ago, and Marks confirmed the news when the outlet asked him for comment.

He did not, however, wish to say much more about the situation. WIP is currently in the midst of changes to its lineup due to the upcoming departure of legendary morning host Angelo Cataldi.

In late October, the station announced the current midday show of Joe DeCamara and Jon Ritchie would replace Cataldi in the mornings. Longtime morning co-host Al Morganti will remain with the station but will no longer be heard in mornings once DeCamara and Ritchie take over. Anchor Rhea Hughes will stay in the morning timeslot.

The station has yet to name a new midday show to replace DeCamara and Ritchie. Marks is currently teamed with former NFL linebacker Ike Reese from 2:00-6:00 PM. The two were paired together in 2017.

“Maybe he was doing that emphatically because somebody criticized him as flat or something.”

Monday Night Football got off to an energetic start last night, with the usually reserved Joe Buck showcasing an exuberant attitude while discussing the weather and the fact that the calendar has already flipped to December. WFAN morning host Boomer Esiason wondered if there was an ulterior motive to Buck’s raucous start.

In addition to the energy exuded by the Monday Night Football announcer, Buck nearly howeld in excitement as the network showcased Tom Brady’s usual scream of “Let’s F—ing Go!”, by shouting “Yeah! Let’s go! I can’t say one of those words!”

The excitement was noticed by Boomer & Gio update anchor Jerry Recco who played the audio for the show, with Boomer Esiason wondering if Buck was proving a point to someone.

“Maybe somebody told him he was too downcast the previous broadcast,” Esiason wondered. “Maybe he was doing that emphatically because somebody criticized him as flat or something.”
