While the 2022 Major League Baseball World Series is in full swing, Audacy’s daily new podcast “Baseball Isn’t Boring” is just getting started. Baseball columnist, author, WEEI (WEEI-FM) broadcaster, and podcast host Rob ‘Bradfo’ Bradford tackles sports news, hot topics, and headlines, bringing listeners on and off the diamond.
This podcast is based on Bradford and major league pitcher Joe Kelly’s brainchild, the “Baseball Isn’t Boring” campaign. The duo also co-authored the book, A Damn Near Perfect Game: Reclaiming America’s Pastime, set to release on March 14, 2023.
Kelly and Bradford ramped up their social media efforts in 2022 to remind us that “baseball is anything but boring.” Various sports stars including Clemson football head coach Dabo Swinney, MLB manager Joe Maddon, and Los Angeles Dodger Mookie Betts joined the brand’s social media rollout to share why baseball is still America’s favorite pastime. Fans can join the conversation on Twitter and Instagram – @bbisntboring.
Kelly joins Bradfo and Cooper ‘Coop’ Leonard as the podcast’s first guest. They chatted about baseball and “the spiciness that comes with soaking in the great game.” He also shared major league insights on the World Series, opinions on how players see the Astros, and more.
Future guests will include sports stars or folks from the entertainment world sharing takes on baseball and other fan-centric topics. Episodes will feature round-table discussions, listener participation, social media integration, and video content.
Of the project, Bradford said, “As we wrap up what has been a very ‘un-boring’ postseason, we’re thrilled to launch this fun new daily podcast to rally behind the great sport of baseball – America’s national pastime. I look forward to speaking with some of the biggest names in sports to prove that baseball is alive and thriving.”
Since April 1, Audacy has launched over 70 original sports podcasts, and fans can stay tuned for 20+ more titles over the next few weeks.
