The Dan Patrick Show will move to NBC’s Peacock streaming service, sources tell Outkick.
The move does not impact the show’s radio airing. In March, after AT&T, which produced the show, ended the Audience Network, Patrick signed a multi-year contract to remain syndicated on Fox Sports Radio. In the deal, iHeart took over the distribution of the show’s podcast.
Since the AT&T departure, the show has aired on Patrick’s YouTube page. The channel is expected to remain active with show clips even if it’s to no longer air full episodes, per sources.
Patrick is not new to NBC. From 2008 to 2018, he hosted Football Night in America. NBCSN simulcasted his radio show from 2012 to 2019.
Patrick’s Peacock debut is likely to occur in the fall. Yesterday, NBC announced the Rich Eisen Show moves to the service on October 5. Eisen’s program follows Patrick’s daily on SiriusXM’s Dan Patrick Radio channel.
Peacock offers a free tier, as well as ad-free subscription options. For the sports media industry, NBC’s entrance into streaming wars is noteworthy. So far, its competitors — Netflix, HBO Max, Amazon Prime, and Disney+ — have stayed out of the sports content business.

I can’t stand Patrick Dan or Eisen the Terrible. Eisen used to be kinda funny. Now he is a NYC via Michigan Left Coast Liberal. Even in covering sports.
Patrick dan is a sideline reporter with a radio show.
Agree. Stopped listening to Patrick and his incessant self-aggrandizing (humbly, of course) ball washing years ago. Eisen is too benign to even effort an opinion about. Oh, maybe I just did…
Dan Patrick’s career arc reminds me of David Letterman and Howard Stern. For the first half or more of their careers, they were the brash, new kids on the block; doing the crazy stuff that nobody else would do. They found a niche. They were fun and entertaining. Then, as they got older, they got boring and crotchety. Maybe that’s just what age does to you, as I find myself complaining about stuff much more now than I did 10 years ago. lol
But I don’t find Dan interesting anymore. Or Eisen. They interview athletes or coaches who offer no interesting perspective. It’s cookie cutter stuff. That’s why I like Clay. Like Tony Kornheiser, Clay doesn’t interview current athletes often, if at all. And the coaches he interviews are at least interesting (Mike Leach or even Art Briles). If I am going to listen to sports radio for 3 hours, I want to be entertained.
I’ll defend DP. I like his interview style, and when I listen to him on the radio driving to work (he comes on right after Clay), he steers away from politics for the most part. I really liked that Clay to Dan line-up where I live.
With you. Once I got over the “worship me” persona which was very tongue in cheek, I got to like Patrick. Miss him in the mornings
