Sports betting company, PointsBet, has announced the launch of a new show focused on the NBA and college basketball titled, Count It.
Podbam can reveal the show will be hosted by current MSG Networks on-air talent Kazeem Famuyide from the PointsBet Studio in New York City. PointsBet says Famuyide will dive into the daily storylines impacting the NBA and college basketball, provide expert analysis on the top betting picks of the day, and chat with exciting guests about the state of basketball.
New episodes will drop four times a week on all the major podcast platforms, and they’ll also be available on YouTube.
“It is a privilege to be joining an innovative and forward-thinking organization like PointsBet as they continue to build out their impressive content portfolio,” said Famuyide.
“Being able to talk about the sport I’m so passionate about with incredible guests and to do so against the backdrop of sports betting is next to none. I look forward to diving right in at the halfway point of the NBA season and begin prepping for March Madness.”
In addition to his role with MSG Networks, Kazeem brings over 10 years of experience within sports, music, and entertainment, featuring hosting stints at major organizations including The Springhill Company and The Ringer. He has also held editorial positions at top publications and entities such as Bleacher Report, World Wrestling Entertainment, and The Source.
Count It will be the third original program created by PointsBet Studio, joining “The Straight Line” hosted by former NFL Quarterback, Ryan Leaf, and “Stoppage Time with Ian Joy,” the company’s soccer-focused production, with more to come in the near future.
