In case you haven’t noticed, we’re sort of building a thing here. Liberty Broadcast is now the podcast network of choice for Tony Bruno, Bleeding Green Nation, our show, Eytan Shander, and now… you know what, I’ll just let our joint press release with the newly-formed Philly Voice tell you about our STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP! We’re in the strategic partnership business now, apparently:
The Podcast Debuts on Friday, December 19 at 12 P.M. on LibertyBroadcast.co
PHILADELPHIA (December 18) – Liberty Broadcast, a sports-focused podcast network, and PhillyVoice.com, a new media company serving the Philadelphia and South Jersey region, announced today a strategic partnership in bringing Eagles fans throughout the region Eagles Insider, a weekly podcast featuring Jimmy Kempski, PhillyVoice.com’s Eagles Writer, and Tommy Lawlor, a Writer for PhiladelphiaEagles.com and IgglesBlitz.com. Each week, Eagles Insider will bring listeners directly into the locker room, covering the team and breaking down the X’s & O’s of past and future games. The podcast will feature interviews with Eagles players, coaches, beat writers, and national experts from all over the country. The first episode of Eagles Insider debuts Friday, December 19 at 12 P.M. on LibertyBroadcast.co, and will join the network’s popular lineup of podcasts, including The Tony Bruno Show, Crossing Streams, BGN Radio, and Shander Show.
“I am thrilled to welcome Jimmy Kempski and Tommy Lawlor, two of the best new media football minds around, to Liberty Broadcast,” said Kyle Scott, Founder of the popular podcast network. “Their show will be the perfect smart, and funny, alternative to traditional sports talk radio, and a great complement to our growing mix of podcasts. Both guys have carved out a niche (from scouting to stick figures) in discussing the Eagles in new, insightful, and humorous ways.”
Following a hiatus from their popular podcast, Helmet2Helmet, Eagles Insider brings Jimmy Kempski and Tommy Lawlor back to Internet radio. The show will provide Eagles fans with a wealth of insight, countless laughs, and an open forum for listeners to hear the latest news about their favorite NFL team. In the coming months, Eagles Insider has plans to further expand its lineup of notable hosts, providing fans with even more leading voices on the Philadelphia Eagles.
“This exciting collaboration with Liberty Broadcast will provide PhillyVoice.com with the opportunity to further connect with Philadelphia’s passionate sports community,” said Lexie Norcross, Managing Director, PhillyVoice.com. “Eagles Insider will provide Birds fans with the perfect avenue to feed their craving for the most relevant breaking news and information from two of the best Eagles writers in the region.”
“I have always loved Jimmy and Tommy’s work not only as writers, but also as co-hosts of their podcast Helmet2Helmet, said John Barchard, Partner, Liberty Broadcast and Host, BGN Radio. “I have been trying to figure out a way to get them together again, and I can’t tell you how thrilled I am that the PhillyVoice.com recognizes how important Jimmy and Tommy’s voices are when it comes to the Philadelphia Eagles.”
