Earlier this month, Jake Crain spoke to BSM’s Tyler McComas about attending this week’s BSM Summit in New York City (March 2-3) and his desire to learn from people in the radio industry. sports and podcasting.
Of course, many will be interested in learning from Crain, whose podcast The JBoy Show has had a meteoric rise, especially in its partnership with Colin Cowherd’s The Volume. At the time of Tyler’s conversation with Crain, big plans were about to be announced. Crain couldn’t elaborate, but moving on from The Volume seemed imminent. All he could say was that his podcast was moving to “an even bigger platform.”
Now, however – and just in time for the BSM Summit – Crain’s next move has been announced. The JBoy Show joined The Daily Wire and with the new home comes a new name. The show will be called Crain & Co.is undergoing a rebranding and will premiere Monday, February 28 at 2 p.m. CT.
In an announcement video, Crain reiterated the point made in the above tweet: “All ball, no politics,” for anyone concerned that the popular SEC and college football podcaster was suddenly leaning about politics by joining Ben Shapiro’s media company.
“We’re going to talk about everything from college football to the NFL, Major League Baseball to college baseball, NBA Playoffs to March Madness, and beyond,” Crain said.
In his chat with BSM, Crain mentioned he wanted to avoid being pigeonholed and expand beyond the SEC football zone. The JBoy Show widely played. Growing up means talking about more sport nationally.
“As someone who started it during quarantine, just on a whim, trying to pass the time, watching it go from the Believe Network to Colin Cowherd and The Volume,” Crain said in the video. announcement, “and now at the Daily Wire – which we’re super excited to be getting into sports and honored to be choosing us to be their first sports show – we’ll continue to bring you the same content and we will always be us.
Crain & Co. premieres Monday, February 28 and will be live Monday through Friday from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. CT on YouTube, Apple Podcasts, and Spotify.
