DAZN Pegs McAfee For New Daily Streaming Show, Other Duties
Former NFLer Pat McAfee's post-football media career "continues to grow," as DAZN yesterday announced the launch of a "national daily streaming show with McAfee called the 'Pat McAfee Show,'" according to Akeem Glaspie of the INDIANAPOLIS STAR. The show will air from 10:00am-12:00pm ET, "starting Monday, Sept. 8." The streaming show will have its "own podcast, separate from the 'Pat McAfee Show Podcast.'" In addition to the daily show, McAfee will "broadcast live from DAZN’s boxing and MMA cards, providing onsite coverage of fight week." In addition, he will "contribute to DAZN’s nightly baseball show 'ChangeUp' and create weekly football-focused segments for DAZN Canada and DAZN Germany, where the streaming platform has the rights to NFL games." McAfee will also "continue his work with the WWE," and he is "set to make his Thursday Night college football debut with ESPN" Aug. 29 during UCLA-Cincinnati (INDIANAPOLIS STAR, 8/8).
