After previous sold-out shows in New York, Los Angeles and Detroit, Jalen & Jacoby will return with a live recording from the historic Gramercy Theatre in New York City on Tuesday, April 21. Fans can experience a live taping where Jalen Rose and David Jacoby will break down the latest news in sports and pop culture with humor, intelligence and perspective that only a former NBA star and veteran ESPN television producer can provide. Tickets are on sale now via Ticketmaster.
The Jalen & Jacoby podcast first began as a passion project for the guys under ESPN’s Grantland banner. As the podcast developed into a hit in the summer of 2011, it grew to include a YouTube show, which then led to an opportunity to host a national ESPN radio show. From the radio show, Jalen & Jacoby grew – yet again – into a late-night TV show before making a progression into an afternoon timeslot on ESPN2 and, currently, 4 p.m. on ESPN.
