I’ve Signed Up For Three More Years of Outkick the Coverage Radio

Videos by OutKick

Two years ago I started doing Outkick the Coverage for Fox Sports Radio from 6-9 am eastern every morning.

Last week, as Sports Business Journal just reported this morning, I signed on to continue doing it for three more years.

So if you love me, congrats, you get at least three more years of starting off your day with me. And if you hate me, please tell everyone you know that I’ve signed up for three more years and that they should absolutely, positively not listen. I’m particularly excited about the fact that I now have an equity stake in the Outkick radio show, meaning I — and Fox Sports Radio — can now sell ads on the Internet, on the radio, on Periscope, Facebook, Twitter, and podcasts. Basically, if you want to reach a large sports audience we can make it happen more ways than just about anyone in the country now.

In all honesty, I’m excited to keep going even though it means many more mornings of waking up at 415 am. We’re now in 292 markets in all fifty states. Add in satellite radio, podcasts, and streaming numbers and Outkick is now one of the five or six most listened to national sports talk shows in the country. And I think there’s still a massive opportunity for growth given how strong the Fox Sports Radio of me, to Dan Patrick, to Colin Cowherd, to Doug Gottlieb is on Fox Sports Radio from 6 AM to 6 PM.

Ratings for Outkick were up over 17% nationwide this current fall over our first year fall and in Los Angeles, which is the biggest market we’re on in for all three hours, our ratings were up 85% over last year for adults 25-54, which is absolutely phenomenal.

Thanks are in order for my Fox Sports Radio bosses Don Martin and Scott Shapiro and for Julie Talbott my boss at Premiere, who was very involved in getting this deal done. Major props to my production staff at Outkick: Jason Martin, Danny G., Justin Cooper, and Eddie Garcia who have worked on the show for the past couple of years with me.

More good news is on the horizon shortly, but for now I’m hopping in my car and heading down to Atlanta for SEC Media Days. I’ll be doing Outkick live from there on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Nothing else with my schedule will change; I’ll continue to do Outkick the Show on Periscope and Facebook and the radio show will just keep right on rolling.

So will the new book, Republicans Buy Sneakers Too, which is set to be released on September 25th.

Add it all up and this fall is set to be the busiest of my life.

Can’t wait.

As always, thanks to all of you for all the support you’ve shown me since I started writing online in 2004.
