A Conversation With Colin Cowherd’s Executive Producer Greg Toohey

Greg Toohey, the executive producer of The Herd with Colin Cowherd on Premiere/iHeart and FS1, joined us on Outkick Live. We discussed:

  • Producing The Herd during a pandemic — what type of guests do they want? What conversations? How did it work physically and technically producing the show from different locations?
  • The process of going about booking a guest like Ahmad Rashad the Monday after The Last Dance
  • What metrics they look at between TV, radio, and digital to help them drive topic selection.
  • The interesting, winding career that took Toohey from insurance to part-time in radio to producing one of the biggest sports shows on the airwaves.

Hope you enjoy!
