2013 is a big year for SportsRantz thus far and we continue to strive to do some incredible things as the year rolls on. Growing our radio station is always a top priority and we are looking to further expand our current lineup of shows. It’s a key goal for us to improve our sports radio station each and every day.

With that being said I am pleased to announce the latest addition to our radio lineup, “Siren 1363 Radio Show” which will be following “Friday Night Rant Zone” on our Friday night lineup. The show will kickoff at 8pm EST and is debuting within the next few weeks. Hockey fans rejoice!

The host will be blogger Amy Gist and we are excited to welcome her to the SportsRantz Radio family.

“Siren 1363 was started in January 2012 by Amy Gist as a blog spot for Gongshow Gear Hockey. Amy stills blogs under Siren 1363 for Gongshow but it is also now her personal web domain siren1363.com and associated with most of her written content. The addition of a radio show to the Siren 1363 brand is a great opportunity for expansion of Amy’s little hockey haven for die hard fans

Tuning into Siren 1363 Radio Show will be an interactive hockey experience. Focusing not just on scores and updates we’ll be talking about charitable causes around the hockey world, controversial hits and fights, players from leagues other than the NHL, as well as some great surprise guests from hockey players to trainers and coaches! A weekly re-cap of everything Amy has published will also be part of the show! Listeners are encouraged to call in and join the discussion, ask questions, and get involved with the Siren herself (Amy) on the air

It is an incredible honor to be joining SportsRantz Radio and a huge step forward for the brand that is Siren 1363. The opportunity to reach out to an audience that might not have time to read all of the written material put out on Siren 1363 now has an opportunity to see what the big stories of the week from Amy were! This is an exciting opportunity and will be a great experience for Amy and listeners alike”  – (courtesy of Amy Gist)

February is a month of new shows debuting on SportsRantz Radio, a trend we are striving to continue as we progress further into 2013. Stay tuned and gear up for this great new hockey show on SportsRantz Radio.

Olympic track cyclist Kelly Catlin, who competed in the 2016 Rio Janeiro Games, was found dead in her California home this past Friday due to an apparent suicide, according to an announcement from her father, according to Reuters.

“There isn’t a minute that goes by that we don’t think of her and think of the wonderful life she could have lived,” her father, Mark Catlin said, according to VeloNews. “There isn’t a second in which we wouldn’t freely give our lives in exchange for hers. The hurt is unbelievable.”

Catlin, 23, took the silver medal in Rio and was part of the teams who took home the gold in 2016, 2017, and 2018 World Championships.

Catlin had reportedly struggled with mental health in the past and her sister, Christine Catlin, said that Catlin was “a really special person – kind, funny, empathetic, and talented at literally everything she did, per the Washington Post. She just felt like she couldn’t say no to everything that was asked of her and this was her only escape.”

Tom Brady And Pats Play Record 8th AFC Championship Game, Seek 6th Superbowl

It’s Championship Sunday and one of the NFL staples remain atop the league. The New England Patriots are appearing in their record 8th AFC title game in hopes of competing for a sixth title.

A season that most organizations would be happy with, was one of challenge for the Patriots. Usually a top tier team, they suffered bad losses to the Jaguars, Titans and Dolphins. However, in Patriot fashion along a weak AFC East, the Patriots finished 11-5, won a 10th straight conference title and secured a first round bye.

Kansas City will host New England in the AFC Championship game in what is a rematch from week six. That game featured an offensive clinic ,  As reported by CBS Boston, Brady went 24-35 passing for 340 yards and touchdown in that game; Mahomes went 23-36 passing for 352 yards and four touchdowns. The AFC Championship could very well play out the same way.

The Chiefs will be a tough out, They won their first home playoff game in 25 years last week against the Colts and are riding one of the most prolific offenses in history behind quarterback whisperer Andy Reid and phenome Patrick Mahomes who is arguably the NFLs best young QB.

In what is a David and Goliath matchup, Brady seems to imply they are the underdog. As he told CBS’s Tracy Wolfson, “I know everyone thinks we suck and, you know, cant win games,”.  Will the dynasty continue? Or will Reid and Mahomes hoist the Lombardi?

I’m leaning towards the game plan of Bill Belichick and veteran experience of Tom Brady in this one. I think a Patriot/Saints matchup is in order. Either way, it will undoubtedly be one for the ages.

Game Time: Sunday January 20th at 6:40ET/5:40CT on CBS.

An Agency Changing the Sponsorship Game for Athletes

Anthony DiMoro

The following is an official press release from Eight Seven Media

Sponsorships and endorsements have changed significantly over the past few years. Historically, we know them as mainstream commercials and endorsements by top apparel and shoe brands with professional athletes and celebrities at the forefront. Until recently, the huge rise of influencer marketing has changed brands perspective and they have gravitated towards using social media stars as their advocates. Influencers are compensated with hundreds of thousands of dollars and brands have turned away from the traditional celebrity or professional athlete. Eight Seven Media is looking to turn that model on its head and bring sponsorship dollars back to professional athletes.

Founded by Dylan Scance and Derek Flodmand, Eight Seven Media creates social media content for professional athletes. Working on the talent buying side, they noticed that brands were only picking talent based on either their audience or their content. When they would pitch athletes to certain brands, they knew they were a perfect fit for the brand from a personality and lifestyle perspective, but the athletes had a tough time getting deals from brands. Aside from the lack of resources these agencies provided, the number one reason was their lack of content. Most athletes understand that having a social media presence is crucial in today’s market, but they don’t necessarily understand exactly how to leverage their channels to their maximum potential.

We’ve outlined Eight Seven’s process below:

Step 1: Identification

Along with a data-backed strategy, their team works hand-in-hand with both the athlete and agent to understand what types of brands they are interested in partnering with.

Step 2: Content Creation

Their team then works directly with the athlete to create rich, bespoke lifestyle social media content, specific to the verticals they have identified. They will meet directly with the athlete to bring this content to life.

Step 3: Amplification

As the athlete pushes out bespoke content via their social channels, their team leverages a specialized software called Social Ads to amplify top-performing content to target audience(s) based on the verticals we have identified. This provides the athlete with increased reach and exposure within the right audience segments- thus increasing their potential value to identified brands.

Step 4: Reporting

Via the Social Ads software, their team provides intuitive reporting on content performance, inclusive of demographic and geographic data which highlights the extended audience that has been exposed to the athlete’s content.

Athletes are a perfect fit for brands for many reasons. They have a highly engaged audience that’s not filled with bot accounts (something that’s been plaguing the influencer industry for years). They are inspirational, motivational, and have overcome many challenges and hardships in life that inspire generations of fans. They are the perfect example of a true “influencer”, but they are still getting overlooked for sponsorship deals.

Eight Seven Media also offers their “Athlete Incubator”, a service where they work with newly signed athletes that are being developed by agents and teams and completely rebrand their social channels out of college. These athletes go through a 12-month process with Eight Seven where they advise them on best practices for their social channels, how to create and leverage high-quality content on their own, what brands look for from a social media perspective, and how to engage with their audience. Along with content creation, Eight Seven Media provides its clients with an analysis of how well their athletes social channels are performing.

The content being created is leveraged by agents when they’re pitching an athlete for sponsorships or endorsements. With the huge rise in lifestyle and fashion brands, non-traditional endorsements are something that’s taking the industry by storm. Kyle Kuzma signing with the GOAT app is a perfect example of how optimizing your content to fit the brands you want to work with pays off in the long-term. Brands not only want to partner with athletes that they can trust to produce high-quality content, but they want to ensure that this can be pushed out to their brands owned and operated social channels by repurposing these assets.
