January 2016 Podcast

This month’s podcast looks at pre-game and how to fill it with entertaining content your fans will come early to see. Guests include UN-Reno Head Coach Eric Musselman and Big Mike Kennedy from the SF 49ers.

This month’s podcast has a west-coast and pre-game feel.  First I am joined by Matt Heuer for the #TuesdayTip, which leads to a discussion about building a great pre-game show and the advantages to doing so.  Matt then sticks around to talk about two promotions from the Golden State Warriors and a new “Cam” feature for your video board.

Next Eric Musselman, head coach of the University of Nevada Reno Wolfpack, talks about their unique pre-game show featuring the 2015-16 Wolfpack team.  It’s a great entertainment piece and Eric gives the full backstory on how it came about.

Finally Big Mike Kennedy from the San Francisco 49ers joins the show to reflect on how the Sacramento Kings game entertainment staff built their pre-game show years ago, and how that has become a model for teams since.
