On Monday, The Daily Wire launched its first daily sports podcast, “Crain & Company,” hosted by brothers Jake and Blain Crain as well as former University of Michigan quarterback David Cone. “Crain & Company” will tackle the biggest stories in football, baseball, basketball, hockey, and more every weekday at 3:00 p.m. ET on YouTube, DailyWire.com, and wherever podcasts are available — without the woke nonsense spoiling other sports shows.
Host Jake Crain, former collegiate football coach, said in a statement, “We are thrilled to become a part of The Daily Wire family as they dive deeper into the world of sports. Joining such an innovative, growing media company with one of the largest platforms validates everything we have built.”
“We look forward to having sports fans across the country turn to ‘Crain & Company’ and Daily Wire for the most informative sports opinions, analysis, and prognostications,” Crain added.
The podcast will feature “a blend of opinion, analysis, and schematic breakdowns with a touch of humor,” according to a press release announcing the podcast.
The three hosts will share in-depth insights on teams, players, and leagues; interview the biggest names in sports; and wager predictions, big and small. Plus, the trio’s fans, known as “The Booster Club,” will also be able to interact with the hosts throughout the program.
The podcast is just the latest foray for The Daily Wire into shaping and making the culture. In addition to sports content, in recent weeks, The Daily Wire has announced major projects being added to its rapidly growing film slate. Earlier this month, the company hosted the premiere of its first original production, thriller “Shut In,” which has earned a 97% Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes from more than 1,000 reviewers.
On March 10, The Daily Wire will debut indie comedy “The Hyperions,” starring Cary Elwes (“The Princess Bride”). This summer, Daily Wire members will be able to watch Gina Carano in the highly-anticipated action western, “Terror on the Prairie,” the former “Mandalorian” star’s first movie since parting ways with Disney last year.
As for “Crain & Company,” the entire company is thrilled to add their skills to The Daily Wire’s repertoire.
“The energy and excitement that Jake, Blain, and David bring to the world of sports is contagious and we can’t wait to share it with our listeners and members,” Daily Wire co-founder and co-CEO Jeremy Boreing said in a statement.
“From movies to sports and our chart-topping podcasts, The Daily Wire is Americans’ go-to platform for premium content and quality entertainment,” Boreing added.
While this is the first sports podcast produced by The Daily Wire, it is not the first time the conservative media company has covered sports. Recently, The Daily Wire hired sports reporter Joe Morgan, who can be read every day on DailyWire.com.
Last October, the company announced it was hiring longtime ESPN anchor Allison Williams. Williams, who quit ESPN due to their mandated COVID-19 vaccine policy, will lead a sports series that is set to be released this year.
“Crain & Company” was previously titled “The JBoy Show,” and the podcast officially announced its new title, start date, and air time via YouTube on Sunday:
