Pro Football Network is adding a heavy-hitter from South Beach to help lead their NFL coverage as the 2021 season quickly approaches. Miami Herald Dolphins writer Adam Beasley is joining the website as their national NFL insider and analyst. Beasley had been covering the Dolphins for the Herald since 2012.

Beasley joins Pro Football Network’s fresh duo of NFL Analysts, including Trey Wingo and Dalton Miller. The company was founded in 2019 as a new online avenue for football coverage. Multimedia is the name of the game for Beasley, who will have roles in print, audio, and visual content for Pro Football Network.

“I couldn’t be more excited — and grateful — to join Pro Football Network,” Beasley said in the press release. “A national gig has long been a dream, and I’m going to work my butt off every day to provide fun, unique content to our growing audience.”

Beasley is a Syracuse graduate and had stints in West Texas, Northern Virginia, and Baltimore before calling South Florida home, starting in early 2006. 

“Bringing Adam to Pro Football Network is our next step in becoming a primary source of information for football fans across the world,” Founder and Chief Executive Officer Matt Cannata said. “Adam’s extensive list of contacts and experience in the football media industry will give our audience a unique perspective and intimate understanding of the behind-the-scenes nature of the game and its inner workings, from the player perspective to executive levels.”

The reporter is a veteran presence at big sporting events. Beasley has covered nine Super Bowls, multiple NBA Finals, and a few Final Fours.

“Aside from Adam’s versatile content and storytelling, PFN hired the best beat writer in a top market who comes from a well-known publication with a Rolodex of trusted contacts that he is ready to unleash on a national scale,” said Aaron Sutton, Chairman of the PFN Board. “This is another massive victory for PFN and who we are as a company.”

Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s Dirty Mo Media has announced a podcast deal with NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin.

Hamlin will host Actions Detrimental with Denny Hamlin on a weekly basis during the NASCAR season. The Actions Detrimental branding is verbiage used by NASCAR for fines assessed to drivers for their disparaging comments about the sport. Known as one of NASCAR’s more outspoken drivers, Hamlin has been fined several times under the “actions detrimental to stock car racing” statutes.

New episodes will be published each Monday during the NASCAR season with previews and reviews of races, with the goal of inviting guests and interacting with fans playing a future role in the series.

Denny Hamlin jokingly thanked Dirty Mo Media for the “opportunity and the fat check” the company wrote for him to host the podcast in a Twitter announcement.

The 42-year-old Hamlin has won 48 races during his 18-year NASCAR Cup Series career. In addition to serving as a driver for Joe Gibbs Racing, he co-owns 23XI Racing with basketball legend Michael Jordan.

The podcast is the latest in an expansion of content produced by the Mooresville, North Carolina-based digital outlet. After beginning with The Dale Jr. Download, the company has grown to include other podcasts like Door, Bumper, Clear, and Speed Street, as well as video projects like The Next Level.

Barstool Sports CEO Erika Nardini recently did a wide-ranging interview with AdAge.com about the future of the digital sports outlet’s television aspirations, and she said sports they’re familiar with will take priority.

“”We want sports that appeal to a broad audience. We’re kind of tickled to be able to broadcast things in the first place. So I think we‘ll start with the biggest sports that we know and love, whether it’s basketball and football,” Nardini said. “You could definitely see that extended to golf, that would probably be the next place that we’ll play.”

The questions about Barstool’s future aspirations come after the company’s successful first broadcast of the Barstool Sports Arizona Bowl. Barstool says the broadcast received nearly 1 million views, peaking at 130,000 concurrent viewers. The outlet also broadcasted the Barstool Sports Invitational that featured Akron, Mississippi State, Toledo, and UAB in November.

Nardini added that the company is interested live televised sports for a few reasons.

“We’re owned by a sports betting company and the more we think about building our sports platform, there’s obviously a huge opportunity for us to convey a whole bunch of offerings to our audience, but certainly betting will be one of them…I think that live sports on television is the last man standing where it’s all anyone tunes in for.”

Sports licensing giant Fanatics will soon be launching its long-anticipated sportsbook.

The company will open up a physical sportsbook location in Maryland at FedEx Field on January 20. Fanatics has also been granted a license to operate in Massachusetts, tethered to Plainridge Park Casino.

The location at the home of the Washington Commanders will make it the first sportsbook to open inside an NFL stadium. Bettors in the DMV will now be able to place wagers at all their local teams’ venues, as William Hill has an on-site location at Capital One Arena – home of the Capitals and Wizards – and BetMGM has a space at Nationals Park in D.C.

Despite having a physical location at FedEx Field, bettors in Maryland will not be able to place mobile wagers through a Fanatics Sportsbook app.

According to Front Office Sports, Fanatics hopes to have the sportsbook up and running in some fashion in all states where legal by September.
