Blue Wire is pleased to announce national podcasts Road Trippin’ and Stay Hot have renewed their partnership with the network.
Road Trippin’, led by Allie Clifton, Channing Frye, and Richard Jefferson, launched their podcast together in January 2017 as teammates of the Cleveland Cavaliers. The trio has grown their podcast into one of the largest national NBA audio channels by using authentic voices and keeping their NBA banter fresh.
“The Road Trippin’ team couldn’t be happier renewing with the Blue Wire family of podcasts. The support & team within Blue Wire has helped us be the best version of ourselves as we distribute amazing podcasts weekly to our listeners. We are excited and look forward for what’s to come in 2023,” says the Road Trippin’ crew when asked about the extension.
“Road Trippin’ is one of the top podcasts in basketball,” said Blue Wire CEO Kevin Jones. “We’re thrilled to continue supporting people like Allie, Channing and Richard. The chemistry of the show and all three host’s growing roles in the national media scene make this a must-listen pod for NBA fans.”
Stay Hot launched on the Blue Wire network in 2021 with Theo Ash, Blaiden Kirk, and Matt Sponhour as the hosts. This marked the network’s first show to be headlined by TikTok talent focused on younger listeners. The NFL and NBA show continues to grow in popularity across audio, YouTube, TikTok and Twitter.
“Blue Wire gave us a chance in the early stages of our career, and we are forever grateful for the opportunity,” said Theo Ash. “Their support and belief in us has been instrumental in our success, and we are thrilled to be back. We appreciate the effort Blue Wire puts into fostering a platform with Stay Hot.”
“Matt, Theo and Blaiden have created a hyper-engaged community of supporters across their podcast, TikTok and Twitter,” said Jones. “Stay Hot is becoming a household name for younger fans and advertisers. The three guys are must-follows across platforms for their NFL and NBA takes. We look forward to helping produce the guys’ content and grow their partnership portfolio.”
Within the past year, both Road Trippin and Stay Hot have invested resources into their YouTube presence, increasing their subscriber count by 49% and 201% respectively over the past year.
Combined, the two shows have been instrumental in helping Blue Wire create partnerships with sponsors like Athletic Greens and Nerd Wallet through specialized promotion campaigns and show segments.
