On July 23rd, New Orleans sports radio personalities Jeff Duncan and Larry Holder will exit iHeartMedia’s Sports 1280. Their show, Dunc & Holder will switch to a twice weekly podcast at that time. This doesn’t seem to be a matter of firing or contracts not being renewed. A press release makes it sound like this may have been a decision of NOLA.com, who partnered with iHeartMedia in launching the show.
NOLA.com and New Orleans Times-Picayune editor Mark Lorando said, “We’re grateful for our yearlong partnership with iHEARTRADIO, which was instrumental in successfully launching ‘DUNC & HOLDER’ and establishing it as the best new sportstalk radio program in NEW ORLEANS. Podcasts are exploding in popularity, and we want to be where the audience is going. Our goal is to make ‘DUNC & HOLDER’ nothing less than the most entertaining, authoritative and fan-focused NEW ORLEANS sports podcast in the digital space.”
The new Dunc & Holder podcast will be available Mondays and Thursdays on NOLA.com. The Thursday show will also stream live from the NOLA Brewing Taproom. Larry Holder will also begin publishing a New Orleans Saints newsletter next month called Larry Holder’s 1st & 10.
