Mike Tirico Launches Podcast

As reported by Michael McCarthy from Sporting News, NBC Sports personality, Mike Tirico launched a new podcast this week.

With Bob Costas taking a lesser role at the network and Dan Patrick’s departure, Mike Tirico has taken over as the face of NBC Sports.  The Mike Tirico Podcast will be a weekly show, released every Thursday.

“I have always been a fan of longer-form sports conversation — and look forward to having great guests,” Tirico said in a statement.

The podcast will feature interviews with athletes and sports media personnel.  Sunday Night Football sideline reporter Michelle Tafoya and sportswriter Gary Myers joined Tirico during his first episode which was released October 11th.  The inaugural episode from Tirico is 33 minutes long and can be heard here.
