Westwood One announced they’ve expanded their sports offerings through a partnership with Barstool Sports, making them a distributor of the Picks Central podcast.
The daily sports gambling show that airs weekdays from 3 – 4pm ET will now be syndicated by Westwood One and available for delayed broadcast. Picks Central is hosted by Brandon Walker and regularly features a rotating cast of Barstool Sports talent, including founder Dave Portnoy and Pardon My Take co-host Dan “Big Cat” Katz. The show hits on hot sports topics, bad beats, moneylines and over/unders.
Walker joined Barstool Sports almost exactly two years ago from the offshore betting site MyBookie. Unaware of a brewing social media feud between Portnoy and MyBookie, Walker began his daily show on Periscope for the gambling site and had to deal with a flood of Stoolies, the next day he was hired by Barstool Sports.
Walker quickly became a star with Barstool. As a gambling analyst and multiplatform contributor with strong ties to SEC country, Walker helps extend the company’s large northeast footprint into the south.
