ESPN will further expand the relationship with Peyton Manning and his Omaha Productions company, a relationship that launched the innovative Monday Night Football with Peyton and Eli this past NFL season and across additional sports since then.
In this newest evolution, the two content organizations will premiere a new lineup of original shows, which will launch with six titles produced by Omaha Productions beginning June 20. The podcasts will feature can’t-miss, signature hosts from current and former all-stars to expert analysts, digital influencers, business moguls and more.
“This new project with Omaha Productions will allow us to offer an even more in-depth experience for fans across our ever-expanding podcast library,” said Jimmy Pitaro, Chairman, ESPN and Sports Content. “We are thrilled to extend this already successful partnership into the audio space with the launch of these first six titles led by so many engaging personalities, with much more to follow.”
“One of the best parts of the Monday Night Football show is getting to talk about a sport I love with other folks who share the same passion for the game,” said Omaha Productions Founder Peyton Manning. “With this audio network, we want to deliver those same entertaining and informative conversations from a great crew of folks at Omaha Audio, who are not only informed but genuinely love the sports and topics they cover.”
All episodes will live in the ESPN Podcast library which already features over 35+ original shows and is available on all podcast distribution platforms. Additional shows will be announced soon.
