PHILADELPHIA- (October 18, 2018) – NBC Sports Philadelphia, the home of the Authentic Fan – is launching “Sixers Outsiders” – a new, interactive program for Sixers fans, by Sixers fans. Hosts Tyrone Johnson and Krystle Rich – both huge fans – will provide their own unique take on that night’s game, with interaction on social media. “Sixers Outsiders” makes its debut on Saturday, October 20 immediately following “Sixers Postgame Live” on NBC Sports Philadelphia and the MyTeams by NBC Sports App.
During “Sixers Outsiders” Johnson (@TyJohnsonNews) and Rich (@KrystleRich) will provide viewers with the hottest takes, insightful analysis, and spirited commentary with interaction from fellow fans on social media.

Tyrone currently produces the Mike Missanelli show, which is simulcasted on NBCSP.
The release says that Rich is a South Jersey native coming home from Los Angeles, where she worked as a reporter for “Time Warner Cable Network (now Spectrum SportsNet).” That actually looks like it was a few jobs ago.
