The state of Louisiana appears to be on the verge of legalizing sports gambling. VSiN isn’t waiting. The national radio network has struck a content partnership deal with WBRZ-TV, Baton Rouge’s ABC affiliate. It marks the first time the company has partnered with an over-the-air TV station.

WBRZ+ will carry VSiN programming Monday through Saturday. Viewers in Baton Rouge will have access to some of VSiN’s most popular programming, including A Numbers Game hosted by Gill Alexander and Prime Time Action, hosted by Gill Alexander, LSU graduate Matt Brown and Danielle Alvari.

“We’re thrilled to bring VSiN’s sports betting content to sports fans and soon-to-be wagering enthusiasts across the Baton Rouge Market,” Noah Kozinko, director of marketing at WBRZ, said in a press release. “We knew we wanted to get ahead of the legislative process and start to educate our audience on sports betting before it kicks off here in Louisiana. We wanted to find the best in the business to help introduce folks to sports betting and there just wasn’t anyone better than VSiN to do that.”

College football fans have found ways to place wagers on their favorite teams for years. VSiN founder and CEO Brian Musberger knows the passion for the sport in an SEC market is virtually unrivaled. That is what makes a partnership with WBRZ ideal.

“As we continue to expand our distribution footprint across the U.S., we’re thrilled to be able to collaborate with innovative providers like WBRZ, who are ahead of the curve in educating their audience, having recognized the growth in this type of content,” he said.

Though there’s still some time before a finished products reaches bookshelves, but ESPN’s Paul Finebaum is reportedly set to get a nice six-figure advance by Penguin Press.

According to John Ourand of Sports Business Journal, Finebaum will make $700,000 plus royalties for the deep dive into the rivalry between the two SEC head coaches.

Back in the spring things came to a head between Alabama’s Nick Saban and Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher, as the two engaged in a verbal spat in separate press conferences over name, image and likeness.

Saban said Fisher and his staff utilized NIL and “bought every player” in the Aggies’ spring 2022 recruiting class.

Things got so heated and drew so many headlines that SEC commissioner Greg Sankey had to step in and try to get the former colleagues to cool it.

Finebaum is teaming up with Alabama beat reporter John Talty to write the book.

If you’re serious about Fantasy Football, the Sports Gambling Podcast Network is bringing back a tradition you’ll want to pay attention to. 

For the second year in a row, Ryan Kramer will draft 24 different teams over the course of a 24 hour marathon that will be streamed across multiple video platforms. 

“Fortunately, the analytics research is done so I can focus now on news coming out of the camps to sharpen my views and deliver the well-reasoned selections that people need to get an edge in their drafting,” Kramer said in a press release. “It’s a bit of an audacious undertaking, but the growing phenomenon of Fantasy Football deserves this level of commitment and our SGPN audiences always respond.”

The marathon will also be a fundraiser. The network is using GoFundMe to raise funds for a colleague named Darryl injured in a motorcycle accident earlier this year. A portion of proceeds generated from the sale of Sports Gambling Podcast Network branded apperal will also go to the effort.
