New Podcast-Exclusive Daily Content from Dan LeBatard and Stugotz

Starting Monday, Aug. 17, fans of Dan LeBatard and Stugotz on ESPN Radio can listen to new daily podcast-exclusive content.  Each day, two new offerings will be posted.  A new digital-only episode will be recorded and posted before their 10 a.m. – noon ET national radio show.  Following the radio program, Dan and Stugotz will record more thoughts and ramblings as a digital-only “post-game show.”  In addition, each hour of the radio show – as well as their local hour heard in Miami – will continue to be available as podcasts.

“Dan and Stugotz already have a large digital-only audience, and we wanted to better serve that audience with exclusive podcast content,” said Tom Ricks, ESPN Audio’s vice president, digital marketing and strategy.  “They are a unique show on sports radio and now their podcast listeners will get more unique podcast content each day.”

According to The Podtrac Podcast Category Audience Rankings in July 2020 with a U.S. Unique Monthly Audience of nearly a million, The Dan LeBatard Show with Stugotz is the second-ranked podcast in the Sports Category.

As I write this on 11-11-21, it's now 35 years for me at ESPN, the only real job I’ve ever had. I joined merely to help with the upcoming America’s Cup in Australia. I was told it would be for three months at all of $5.50 per hour. I like to say I simply kept showing up. I’ve worked on almost every sport, plus answered viewer calls and letters (people used to write!), given tours, written the company newsletter and once drove NASCAR’s Jeff Gordon to the local airport. My travels have been varied…I’ve been to Martinsville, Darlington, Indy and Super Bowls; the America’s Cup (all 3) in San Diego and College GameDay in the sport’s meccas such as Eugene, Auburn, Lubbock, Stillwater and more; the NBA Finals, Wimbledon (16 times and counting) and the “other Bristol,” the one with a race track in Tennessee. These days, my main areas are tennis, UFC, boxing, network-wide ratings (by month/quarter/year), and corporate communications documents, including fact sheets, chronologies, lists and nearly 35 of the Year in Review press releases. UPDATE EXACTLY ONE YEAR LATER: Today, November 11, 2022, I am retiring from ESPN -- 36 years to the day I began. As I ride off into the sunset – top down and E Street Radio blaring – I do so with so many wonderful memories, proud of my contributions and a heart full of gratitude for the opportunity.
