Colin Cowherd Discusses His New Digital Venture

Colin Cowherd, who hosts The Herd on Premiere Networks and FS1 and appears on FS1’s Speak for Yourself and Fox’s NFL Kickoff, joins the podcast this week. In conjunction with Premiere Networks and Red Seat Ventures, he is launching his new web site, TheHerdNow.com, today. The site will be a home for written content, podcasts, and videos. Much of the multimedia will come from his existing program, there will also be original features.

On the podcast, we discussed the purposes of the new site, the aspiration of creators for ownership of their content, and the metrics of Cowherd’s programs digitally, on terrestrial radio, and on television. Leaving ESPN, was he worried about grabbing a bigger piece of a smaller pie? What are his goals going forward?

After that we talked about his broader predictions for this NFL season, what he thinks about Colin Kaepernick, and why he can’t just live and let live with regard to WWE fans. Hope you enjoy!
