Game Time with Boomer Esiason, which launched last September as a television show, now has a podcast partner in Entercom’s RADIO.COM. The podcast partnership furthers Esiason’s relationship with Entercom, which owns WFAN, where he’s co-hosted a morning radio show since 2007.
The TV show features one-on-one interviews with some of the world’s most compelling sports and entertainment personalities. Game Time airs as a weekly 30-minute show, but without TV commercials, the RADIO.COM podcast version lasts about 20 minutes.
“When I was approached to do this show and they talked about a podcast partner, I made sure RADIO.COM was the media outlet to work with, as it aligns with my radio relationship within the Entercom family,” Esiason said in the press release. “I love the show because it gives you a personal insight into the personality I am interviewing, and the conversation is more about the person’s life as opposed to just his sports career.”
A longtime media member, Esiason retired from the NFL in 1997, currently serving as a longtime contributor to CBS’ The NFL Today and co-host of WFAN’s morning radio show. Two years ago, Esiason ended his tenure as an analyst for Westwood One’s coverage of Monday Night Football and prior to this season, the former quarterback left Showtime’s Inside the NFL. All along the way, Esiason continues working to find a cure for cystic fibrosis, the disease which his 28-year old son lives with.
Every Saturday morning, a new episode of Game Time will be available to listeners via the RADIO.COM app. Current podcast episodes feature interviews with pro-golfer Brandt Snedeker and NFL Hall-of-Famer Marshall Faulk. Future Game Time podcasts include conversations with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and baseball Hall-of-Famers John Smoltz and Jeff Bagwell.
