13 months after parting ways with 950 KJR, longtime Seattle sports radio host Mitch Levy has returned with a podcast, Mitch Unfiltered.
The always outspoken and opinionated sports talk personality has found early success with his new venture already jumping to the third spot in the iTunes Top 40 for US Sports & Recreation Podcasts as of Tuesday morning. Levy released his first official episode on Monday, November 19th with co-host Jason Hamilton which lasted 45 minutes, episode two was 90 minutes long and included an interview with Rick Neuheisel.
“I’m equally humbled and proud to present the debut edition of “Mitch Unfiltered”. Apologies to those of you who expected and preferred something different. And beyond grateful to Jason Hamilton AND for all of your support.” Levy wrote on Twitter following the release of his podcast.
Levy spent 23 years in morning drive at KJR, but his tenure came to an end in 2017 after being arrested for soliciting a prostitute in what was an undercover operation.
Now back on the air with a podcast, Levy’s radio success has quickly translated to his digital platform. Levy’s weekly podcast is free for listeners, but consumers can also choose to access bonus episodes by becoming a “patron” for $5 a month.
