Do you eat, breathe and sleep sport? Then this is the podcast for you. Sport Today by The Squiz relaunches this week as part of the Acast Creator Network and there’s a fresh game plan.
Hosted each weekday morning at 6.30am by journalist Sam Ferris, Sport Today is a quick listen that’ll get sport lovers across the biggest stories in sport in Australia and around the world. Sport Today covers topics from the boundary to the boardroom and all the bizarre sports, characters and competitions that any sport lover would want to know about.
Former cricket journalist Sam Ferris, who is most famous for getting dragged up on stage with India captain MS Dhoni, will skipper the podcast.
He will be joined by two equally sport-obsessed co-hosts, sports journos Danielle Kavanagh and Martin Gabor.
Sam Ferris, host of Sport Today, said: “Sport Today is exactly the kind of sports news podcast I’ve always wanted. I’m stoked to be part of the team and can’t wait to deliver it to a passionate audience of sports lovers like myself. Sport Today is short, snappy and designed to bring our listeners up to speed with the key talking points so you’ll never be out of the conversation. We’ll also highlight some of the weirder stuff that happens in the sporting world and provide you with a bit of trivia that could come in very handy at the pub. Have a listen, tell your mates and enjoy!”
Guy Scott-Wilson, Acast’s content director for Australia and New Zealand, said: “For a nation as sport-obsessed as Australia there are actually not as many sport podcasts as you’d think. We’ve been mindful of this at Acast for quite some time and it has been great to work with The Squiz to find smart ways to cater for this audience.”
“That’s why we’re excited for this fresh take on Sport Today. It’s made by sport lovers for sport lovers, in quick, easy to digest episodes and that really lends itself to the medium of podcasting. With its new format and Sam as host, I’m sure it will quickly become a go-to daily podcast for sport fans and fanatics across Australia.”
Acast — the podcast company that works with Australia’s biggest shows — will host and distribute Sport Today, making it available across all podcast apps and players such as Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google Podcasts. For advertisers looking to work with the podcast and its hosts, opportunities are available exclusively through the Acast Marketplace.
