Under this renewed partnership, Francesa will continue to serve exclusively to BetRivers as a provider of network and social media content. Operating from his hometown of New York City, Francesa will host a new daily show on YouTube on “The Mike Francesa Podcast” channel, offering expert insights and analysis on breaking news stories and game reactions. Additionally, he will produce a series of digital videos featured on the BetRivers platform, enriching the betting experience for sports enthusiasts nationwide. He will also meet and greet BetRivers customers in personal appearances in BetRivers markets on the east coast.
