Podcast Series Re-Opens the Murder Case of Michael Jordan’s Father

The podcast focuses on one of the defendants in the case, Daniel Green, who was convicted of murdering Jordan with testimony solely from Larry Demery who took a deal in exchange for identifying Green as the triggerman.

A new podcast hosted by investigative crime reporter Amanda Lamb casts doubt on the facts surrounding the murder case involving Michael Jordan’s father, James. 

The series is produced by WRAL Studios, with its parent Capitol Broadcasting Company, which co-produced the 2021 Amazon / IMDb TV Original Docu-series Moment of Truth about the Jordan case.

The podcast focuses on one of the defendants in the case, Daniel Green, who was convicted of murdering Jordan with testimony solely from Larry Demery who took a deal in exchange for identifying Green as the triggerman. 

“The podcast is the rest of the story,” said Shelly Leslie, head of streaming and podcasting for the Company and serves as Executive Producer on both projects. “The intimacy of audio allows us to take listeners deeply into the lives of all the central characters in this real-life tragedy, most importantly James Jordan and Daniel Green. Mr. Jordan was more than a celebrity’s father.” 

Episodes one and two will be released on July 22, with weekly episodes released every Thursday through Sept 16.

“My goal in this case, or any case I cover, is to seek the truth, based on facts and evidence,” said Lamb. “We’ll take people back to the scene of the crime, put them in the interrogation room, in the trial, in the echoing walls of a prison, and in the living room at home with Daniel’s mother and sister.” 

Lamb has been in touch with Green from prison, through letters, phone calls and in-person interviews, for the last 10 years. 

“The listener is the jury now, only this time they’ll have all the evidence, and they can decide who’s telling the truth,” she said. 

Follow the Truth is the first true-crime podcast from WRAL Studios & Capitol Broadcasting Company.

In 2014, CBSN made the first attempt by one of the traditional broadcast networks to dip its toes into the news streaming game. However, now in 2021, CBS News has plans to phase out CBSN later this year. 

A spokesperson for CBS News confirmed the different direction that the company is taking with its new platform, CBS News. Employees who staff the streaming service will be moving to the studio previously utilized by “CBS This Morning,” which left for Times Square. 

“As a unified organization, we’ll offer a choreography of coverage across all of our platforms, that includes unparalleled, expansive on-the-ground reporting from New York to L.A., Chicago to Dallas, London to Beijing, and everywhere in between,” Neeraj Khemlani said.

The identity change assists in sealing a broader concept of a fluid unit as CBS emphasizes national and local newsgathering.

“We’re not just seeing streaming growth nationally. CBS local news streaming is growing year-over-year as well. By unifying these organizations, we’re building on this momentum,” Wendy McMahon said.

Execs at various media outlets such as CNN, NBC News, MSNBC, ABC News, and Fox News establish more attention on streaming news services.
